Cape Town – Jack Markovitz, grandson of former DA MEC and Western Cape fundraiser Leon Markowitz, went viral for his remarks at Brackenfell, where the EFF held its protest on Friday.

The EFF has kept its promise to descend en masse to the region, protesting alleged racism at school after reports of a private matrix masked ball last month.

Jack Markovitz was born and raised in Cape Town and is a political and philosophy student at UCT.

Markovitz, 21, has been a member of EFF since the age of 18.

The EFF member went viral on Friday, for his passionate beliefs, and garnered attention and criticism on social media.

Near Brackenfell High School, he said the situation in Brackenfell was the same as in all white neighborhoods in South Africa: racism was instilled in people.

“Racism is instilled in the bones of these people, the only difference here is that it is more open and violent. I went to a predominantly private school with predominantly white children, and it happened everywhere.

“I think they aspire to apartheid, I think they use neighborhood WhatsApp and PPA groups, and private security to support apartheid in their neighborhoods. It exists in every white neighborhood in this country, (and) the only difference is that in Brackenfell it is more powerful and violent.

“I think they (EFF) need to do more, I think we need to take these protests to Clifton and Houghton Park where the R20 million is located. These poor white people are angry and violent, and they miss their lives.

“We have to take him to where the rich have money, and they continue to make money with this land which is all the generational wealth, passed down from their parents.

Addressing his grandfather’s political legacy, he said: “I believe the DA is a white supremacist party, and I am trying to rectify the situation here today. We need to transfer generational wealth and land to people deprived of their voting rights. “
