(South African slang. Used primarily in boys' school contexts.)

A high school underclassman; young boy or young teenager. Slightly pejorative, but not meanspirited.
Now that that ouk is a prefect, he can tune all the lighties.

Translation: Now that that guy is a school prefect (upperclassman) he can direct, scold and order about the younger boys (lower classman).

Yesterday we caught the rugby game... it was all the lighties playing.
