Ryan Mokgosi has taken to Twitter to speak up about the injustice his little girl faced at her primary school.

Mokgosi alleged Kea's grade two teacher, Blanche Durant, slapped her in front of all her fellow pupils, then proceeded to call her the k-word.

Mokgosi said only when he was about to take his daughter to her school, the Olifantsfontein Primary School, did she come clean about the incident that took place on Friday.

The enraged father explained Durant allegedly hit his daughter so hard, she slammed her head into the black board. And, when she started to cry, the teacher used a racial slur to have her stop crying.

Mokgosi has since the incident taken Kea to the doctor, where they confirmed her eardrum was injured during the alleged incident.

However, according to Mokgosi, Durant allegedly has little remorse and she responded to the incident in a very rude manner.

Her report allegedly said she slapped Kea like she would all other children and she doubt the struck was hard enough to cause any serious damage.
