Umm Abdillah, Radio Islam Programming – 2014.08.20 | 24 Shawaal 1435

The CEFUPS Academy, a private boarding school, was established in 1992 with an aim of making a remarkable impact in the lives of young South Africans. Situated on a farm 11 kilometres outside Nelspruit, and surrounded by macadamia trees, “far from the prevailing scourges and disturbances from the intruders, thugs and uninvited guests from the nearby locations” it was intended to be a safe place for learning. Since 1992 however, it seems the only impact they’ve been noted to make is of assaulting pupils, right up to their death. The Mpumalanga Education Department is set to close them down pending investigation. Though many parents have complained about the severe beating of their children at the school since 1992, the department’s response has been to backpedal: it could not enforce compliance with the South African Schools Act in private institutions. Since March 2013 regulations force private schools to adhere to the Schools Act – hence the death of one pupil, 19-year-old Paballo Seane, has been changed from an inquest into murder.

Though abolished in 1997, corporal punishment to the point of abuse is a daily occurrence in South Africa. SAHRC commissioner Lindiwe Mokate, says figures from 2012 indicated that 2.2 million children were subjected to corporal punishment in South Africa. The SA Human Rights Commission is currently investigating whether eight-year-old Zolani Gwala's right to life was violated when he was allegedly punched in the chest by his teacher. Gwala, a pupil of Mnamatha Primary School, Kwa Zulu Natal died in hospital. His crime: causing a disturbance in class this April. read more

A customer at Green's Grocery marvels at the proprietor's quick wit and intelligence.

"Tell me, Green, what makes you so smart?"

"I wouldn't share my secret with just anyone," Green replies, lowering his voice so the other shoppers won't hear. "But since you're a good and faithful customer, I'll let you in on it. Fish heads. You eat enough of them, you'll be positively brilliant."

"You sell them here?" the customer asks.

"Only $4 apiece," says Green.

The customer buys three. A week later, he's back in the store complaining that the fish heads were disgusting and he isn't any smarter.

"You didn't eat enough," says Green. The customer goes home with 20 more fish heads. Two weeks later, he's back and this time he's really angry.

"Hey, Green," he says, "you're selling me fish heads for $4 a piece when I can buy the whole fish for $2. You're ripping me off!"

"See?" says Green. "You're smarter already."
