I am not the biggest fan of Kelly Khumalo but we cannot allow our kids kindergarden songs to degenerate into disrespectful grudge songs. In any event, pirates teacher’s recording this are out of order here!! https://t.co/8i9YxgBHHt

Imagine teaching your kids respect at home only for them to go to school and come home singing that Kelly Khumalo song……Whoever the teacher must be expelled and banned from any teaching platform…. Amanyala nje lawa🚮

This is not the kind of education we want for our kids, this is totally wrong. Education department needs to follow up on this school… https://t.co/aipO7umjd4
