The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) has been barred from entering the Nyati Bush and Riverbreak Lodge near Brits in the North West province. Enoch Mpianzi’s family also accompanied SAHRC to the campsite.

It’s where Mpianzi died during an orientation camp organised by Parktown Boys’ High School.

He was in grade 8.

SAHRC’s Gauteng provincial manager, Buang Jones said the owner of the place was seeking legal advice.

“We understand that the owner of the place is seeking advice. He was duly advised of our impending visit. He agreed that the commission can come. He understood the circumstances that the family wants closure, the family wants to perform their own rituals before the funeral. The family wants to see where the body of this young man was found,” Jones said.

“We were taken aback when upon arrival when we saw the gate was locked.”

Jones said the commission viewed the owner’s refusal as “unduly interference.”

SAHRC is in contact with the South African Police Service for assistance.
