Education official apologises for racist rant, but he’s not off the hook yet

Investigations into allegations of hate speech by a senior Limpopo education official will continue, despite his apology, the provincial education department has said. In the audio recording, Phaswana was apparently heard telling pupils the people who collected their scripts after exams were “k*****s. He also allegedly said pupils should not call water balloons “bombs”, because they did not know what bombs were, and that he had bombs from Russia. (City Press 28 September 2013)
