NGCULWINI - Mhubhe High School Head teacher Agrippa Dlamini has been stopped from setting foot at the school until further notice.
The school administrator has not been present during official meetings of the school, amid claims that he had been put on ice. 

An impeccable source narrated to this publication that on Monday, the staff members had a meeting with the Ministry of Education and Training inspectors at the school. However, the insider alleged that the head teacher was not present.
The source alleged that when they inquired about Dlamini’s absence, the inspectors informed them that he had been requested to stay put at his residential premises until further notice.


However, the source said despite the fact that the inspector’s answer left them with unanswered questions, the matter was not discussed further.
Also, yesterday the Ministry of Education and Training, through Manzini Regional Education Officer (REO) Mlimi Mamba and his team, had a meeting with parents and teachers at the school but the head teacher was not present.

Meanwhile, insiders within the ministry stated that there were orders given to the head teacher. However, they referred further questions to the schools manager’s office. The Schools Manager, Macanjana Motsa, said the head teacher had not been suspended as some could perceive.

She said: “From the ministry’s side, due processes were ongoing.” Dlamini, on the other hand, confirmed that the ministry had advised him to remain at home for safety reasons. However, he said he would work with the school committee to get quotations of the damages at the school as it had to be fixed. The school was closed indefinitely last Wednesday following a violent protest by the pupils, who allegedly set the administration block alight and broke windows of several structures; including classes, other offices and the guardhouse. They also dismantled the main gate of the institution.

Following the mayhem, six pupils were arrested and charged with malicious damage to property (E44 140) and theft of E10 650 uniforms.
