What on earth is going on at The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy????
Seven girls at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy near Vereeniging have been suspended for for alleged sexual misconduct, according to Sunday’s Rapport newspaper.
"They broke the school’s code of conduct," spokeswoman for the all-girls school Lisa Halliday was quoted as saying.
According to a letter sent to the parents of one of the girls, aged 15: "You... have been found guilty of physical contact with of a sexual nature with another pupil on campus, harassment, bullying other girls on campus and of being dishonest by not telling investigators the whole truth."
On Thursday four of the girls were told not to return from holidays which start this week. They were found guilty on Tuesday. The other three attended a hearing on Saturday.
Early last year a matron at the school, Virginia Tiny Makgobo, 27, was arrested for indecent assault, common assault, soliciting a minor to perform an indecent act and verbal abuse of girls at the school.
Her case was scheduled to continue in the Sebokeng Magistrate’s Court on June 1.
Huh? I KNOW Miss Oprah is NOT happy about this mess....
