JOHANNESBURG – North West Education MEC Sello Lehare will on Thursday visit a North West primary school following allegations of racism in a grade R classroom.

A photograph emerged showing a group of white pupils sitting together at Laerskool Schweizer-Reneker while their four black classmates sit at a small table near the door.

Premier Job Mokgoro has condemned the incident and dispatched a team to the school to investigate the alleged racial segregation.

His spokesperson Vuyisile Ngesi says: “We as the government condemn any form of racism alleged or not and we deeply regret this unfortunate incident, taking place in our country 25 years into our democracy.”
