Infuriated residents of Ennerdale claiming to be protesting over poor school infrastructure burnt a mobile classroom on Monday morning.
Oakdale Secondary School pupils were marching against poor infrastructure when a mobile classroom was set alight during the protest.
The learners also said they want to be addressed by the Gauteng MEC for Education Panyanza Lesufi who should account and give answers in order for them to learn in a conducive environment.
The march was led by school children in high and primary schools in the surrounding areas in the south of Joburg.
Police used stun grenades and rubber bullets to disperse the protesters and five people were arrested for public violence.
