Principal in hot water over ‘dirty’ blacks

Johannesburg - The principal of Wordsworth High School in Benoni is due to appear at a disciplinary hearing in two weeks, the Gauteng education department said on Wednesday.

Annelize Horn faces a charge of misconduct for allegedly making racial remarks, department spokeswoman Phumla Sekhonyane said in a statement.

A University of Johannesburg lecturer has become the first woman in Africa to be awarded a doctoral degree in experimental physics of highly correlated matter.

In November, eNCA reported Horn allegedly called black girls dirty during school assembly and sent a note to parents complaining they only washed their hair once a month. Horn was suspended after the allegation emerged.
