The school principal abandoned his post after he was accused by parents and community members of misusing school funds.
School patrollers and covid-19 brigades say they have not been paid for the past three months.
Racial tension between the ‘Coloured’ community of Klipspruit and ‘African’ teachers sparked a huge debate around blackness.
