'this Is Kingswood Versus Racism And Any Other Discrimination' Says Student Body After 'snoobab' Slur
All who contributed in "perpetuating a toxic culture" at Kingswood College should be held accountable, the institution's student body said in a statement on Thursday.
"Generations of Kingswoodians to come should not have to fight this same battle, but instead revel in the splendour of what the school is to become," it read.
"We cannot treat this as black versus white or pupils versus management. This is Kingswood versus racism and any other discrimination."
White pupils at the posh Makhanda school were accused of referring to black pupils as "snoobab" - baboons spelt backwards - and those from outside the country were not spared from xenophobic slurs, City Press reported on Sunday.
Pupils took to social media with their allegations, charging that college management was not dealing with their complaints.
