DURBAN - A racial slur, captured on a voice note, has gone viral. This time a Grade 11 pupil at a Model C school in KwaZulu-Natal has been recorded using the K-word against black pupils.

Officials at Pietermaritzburg Girls High School say they’re working with the education department to address the incident.

In a statement released on Monday, the school condemned the language used in the voice notes and that “disciplinary actions are being followed”.

The racial slur was apparently used by the student against pupils struggling to spell and pronounce her name.
