CAPE TOWN - A Khayelitsha principal found guilty on animal cruelty charges is yet to implement court ordered instructions.

The Mdzananda Animal Clinic is up in arms and has accused Manono Makhaphela of not being sorry for ordering that a dog be buried alive.

The incident occurred in 2011 when Makhaphela told workers at the school to bury the dog he regarded as a nuisance.

The animal was however saved from its one-and-a-half metre deep grave.

The principal was ordered to pay a R3,000 fine and start an animal protection awareness programme at the school.

The animal clinic's Marcelle Van Zyl says, "Its three years after the incident and a year after the court proceedings and neither of these have happened."
