Bikers Against Bullies South Africa (Babsa) handed over a memorandum of demands to Parktown Boys' High School principal Malcolm Williams on Friday, calling for him to resign after the death of Grade 8 pupil Enock Mpianzi.

The organisation met at an Engen garage in Parktown, before riding together to the school to hand over the memorandum.

Babsa national leader Pieter Bees Fourie told News24 that the public deserved to know the truth.

"The truth must be forthcoming, and that's what the public deserves and the public needs to get the truth," he said, adding that the "cover-up should stop".

Babsa also said the school governing body should step down.

Mpianzi drowned on January 15, 2020 at an orientation camp at Nyati Bush and River Break resort in Brits.

His death sparked outrage from members of the public who accused the school and camp facilitators of gross negligence.

Babsa's memorandum featured a list of 29 demands.

News24 previously misspelt Mpianzi's first name as "Enoch", based on information provided by members of the family and the education department. It has since been established that the correct spelling is "Enock".
