[LISTEN] Bongani lambastes St John's College principal over racist teacher

St John's College principal Paul Edey, refused to divulge what racist comments a teacher made to black pupils at the school. Edey said an independent inquiry conducted by a senior legal counsel found the teacher guilty of making stereotypical racial remarks, and that the school decided to adopt a "reconciliatory approach" and allow the teacher back.

Bongani tried to challenge the school's decision and asked what the racist remarks were. This was met with silence from Eady who was hesitant to say what the comments were.

What did he say? Did he say they were doing well only because they were seated next to white boys? This suggests he expects them to do badly and you've allowed that teacher back into the classroom and you now come onto this radio station to tell us you abhor this kind of behaviour... are you kidding me?

Eady said the teacher was found guilty and given a letter of final warning. Eady was adamant that the school appalls "bigotry and racism"
