DURBAN - The Wentworth community, south of Durban, insists its actions are not fuelled by racism.

Parents are protesting against the appointment of black principal at Assegai Primary School.

They're demanding his removal, claiming he is less qualified than their preferred candidate.

The education department feels the community’s objection is driven by a racist agenda, and their children’s education is being jeopardised in the process. 

KZN Education Department spokesperson Muzi Mahlambi said schooling will resume on Thursday.

 

 

On Monday, Klipspruit Secondary School in Soweto was closed after residents protested against the appointment of black principal.

They say there is lack of representation from coloured people in school leadership positions.
