Parents accuse Paul Roos Gymnasium of racial discrimination
Vuyokazi & Mzimasi Dyani say they were told to rather enrol their son at a school in Kayamandi.
CAPE TOWN - The parents of a teenage boy are taking on Paul Roos Gymnasium, a government school for boys in Stellenbosch, claiming their son's application to attend the school was rejected on racial grounds.
Vuyokazi and Mzimasi Dyani are accusing the prestigious boys' school of discrimination.
They allege they were told to rather enroll their son at a school in Kayamandi.
The matter has landed up in the Equality Court.
It was also investigated by the Western Cape Education Department.
Education MEC Debbie Schafer says, "Their child wasn't accepted at Paul Roos, they were not happy about that, they appealed to me and I could not find the basis for the alleged discrimination. So I dismissed the appeal."
