Ayanda Borotho has decided to feature her voice the Afrikaans language dominating schools and other sectors within the country.
In her words, she revealed that her children failed in class simply because they failed Afrikaans as a second language.
Her video caught the eye of the many and sparked heated debate on social media.
She said: “I feel trapped, I feel imposed on, I feel somewhat despondent and defeated because during this day and age in 2020 we are still having the conversation about Afrikaans being taught at schools.
“My children speak Sesotho and isiZulu properly … English they manage and actually when it involves the curriculum as a language they are doing well in it for people that are fully exposed to the language [English] a few year ago. They get Cs and Bs.”
Ayanda expressed how disappointed she was hearing her children failed even once they did rather well in other subjects.
“Yet, here’s a language which may be a fourth language, you fail my children because they failed Afrikaans? And you fail them, having aced maths, having aced other subjects … you fail my children on the idea of failing Afrikaans as a second language?,” the actress said.
She continued: “If I tell you, test these boys in Sesotho, test them in isiZulu, they’re going to ace that because that’s their language. So, here’s what i would like to understand … why must I invest 12 years of my children’s school life during a language that’s no benefit to them or me?”
Furthermore, Ayanda urge the governments to seem into the teaching systems as she isn’t in support of Afrikaans which can not not open doors for her kids.
“Why is that this language being imposed on us and our children? Why don’t we’ve options at schools?”
