Oprah At School With Students

Another scandal is slamming the South African girls school founded by television talk show queen Oprah Winfrey, leading to the suspensions of seven students, according to the foreign media. The all girl students at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy School For Girls were suspended for "inappropriate behavior" toward other children, the British Telegraph newspaper has reported. Quoting reports from the Afrikaans on Sundays newspaper, a 15-year-old "preyed" on another student, then coerced others into lying to investigators about what really happened. Six other students were suspended after "being alleged to have touched each other intimately," or intimidating others into inappropriate behavior, the Telegraph reports. The Telegraph quoted Lisa Halliday, school spokesman, as confirming the suspensions. "It is because they contravened the school's code of conduct," she told the British paper. This is the second incident of alleged sexual misconduct at the school, which opened in January 2007 after Winfrey contributed $40 million dollars to the great project. In 2007, a dorm matron was charged with sexually abusing and assaulting six students and another supervisor. Following the matron's arrest, a tearful Winfrey vowed to "clean house" at the boarding school for impoverished girls. She called the incident "one of the most devastating, if not the most devastating, experiences of my life."

No tearful apology from the Oprah this time. Now she says this is common worldwide.

She's partly right. Anywhere black students attend there is inappropriate behaviour, violence, sexual assault, and crime.
