Khayelitsha principal 'receives death threat' from learner
When EWN visited the school today, a caretaker was removing the written death threat from a staircase.
CAPE TOWN - A school Principal in Khayelitsha fears for his life after allegedly receiving a death threat from a learner.
Joe Slovo Engineering High Principal Majiet Parker says this follows severe vandalism at the school over the past two weeks.
It's been a trying time for Parker, with vandals defecating in classrooms, constant vandalism and now an alleged death threat from one of his learners.
When Eyewitness News visited the school today, a caretaker was removing the written death threat from a staircase.
A few metres down the corridor, Parker was inspecting severe damage to the roofing in one of the classrooms.
There were also defamatory words against female teachers written on a classroom blackboard.
Parker said he's extremely concerned by the vandalism, but is shocked that a Grade 11 pupil allegedly threatened to kill him if he fails.
Parker said the death threat and vandalism have been reported to the Education Department.
