JOHANNESBURG - Democratic Alliance (DA) pioneer John Steenhuisen has given over an appeal requesting that Afrikaans be proclaimed a native language at the workplaces of Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande in Pretoria. 

Steenhuisen drove a dissent before on Tuesday along with shadow public assistance and organization serve Leon Schreiber

The party said the exhibition was started by the new arrival of the language strategy structure for public advanced education establishments, which prohibits Afrikaans from the meaning of native dialects. 

It said this remained in inconsistency with the new Constitutional Court judgment, which decided that Afrikaans be reestablished as a vehicle of guidance at University of South Africa. 

Schreiber said the party would keep on battling for the security of every single native language: "We face this contemptuous avoidance of Afrikaans from the meaning of native dialects by giving over a request endorsed by great many individuals and requesting that Nzimande accurately perceives Afrikaans as a native language."
