A principal of a school in Pimville, Soweto has been hospitalised after she was stabbed multiple times by a former teacher.
The alleged perpetrator was fired from the school after investigations revealed that he held a fake teaching qualification.
702's John Robbie spoke to the principal's daughter, Ayanda, about yesterday's stabbing.
People keep asking why she didn't leave the school but she loved the kids, she loved that school.— Ayanda, principal's daughter
Ayanda said that the bogus teacher had threatened the principal multiple times before the violent incident but nothing was done by the authorities, despite her bringing this to their attention.
We had a case opened and the district has been contacted. I'm so disappointed that they had to wait until something happened to my mom.— Ayanda, principal's daughter
