Former Maru A Pula School (MAP) employee Keorapetse Tshwene, who claimed racism and challenged his contract termination, lost his case in which he was disputing the unilateral contract variation and unfair dismissal.

The former teacher, 41, alleged that despite performing well since 2007, he was informed eight months before his contract expired that it wouldn't be renewed.

However, the Industrial Court ruled that Tshwene failed to make a case against the private school. Judge Gaedupe Makgato stated that Tshwene's case lacks merit, especially considering he wasn't terminated. Rather his contract had ended and was not renewed. "Parting ways was a mutual agreement and I do not see how it was an unfair dismissal.
