North West Education MEC Sello Lehare announced the suspension of the teacher in charge of a class where black and white children were apparently separated.

EFF's regional secretary Justice Dabampe says both the principal and teacher should be fired with immediate effect.

Furthermore, Dabampe argues that the teacher should have her South African Council of Educators (SACE) teaching certificate withdrawn.

He accuses the provincial education department of allowing institutional racism at the school where Afrikaans is the medium of instruction.

As the EFF in Dr Ruth Mompati District we are not happy at all... This is not the first time that such a racist act takes place.

The principal must be fired and that particular teacher must be fired with immediate effect.
