CapeTalk/702's Eusebius Mckaiser reflects on 702 host Bongani Bingwa's conversation with the principal of St John's College, Paul Edey on Thursday's afternoon drive show.

Paul Edey should be ashamed of himself.... the school governing body should be ashamed of how they are showing lack of leadership - It is absolutely appalling.

According to reports, geography teacher Keith Arlow allegedly told a black learner who received high marks in a test "You disappointed the blacks by getting a good mark".

He also said to black learners in his class that the only reason they were getting good marks is because they sat next to white learners.

He told a black scholarship learner who got a good mark "Well done, you've started thinking like a white boy".
