Dr Phaswana, circuit manager of the Vhembe Education District, is at the centre of controversy over apparent racial slurs he uttered to matriculants following their "40 Days" celebration at Eric Louw high school in Musina.
One of the children recorded the outburst, and after obtaining a copy of the recording, the Democratic Alliance in Limpopo decided to go public with it.
