The South African Democratic Teachers Union has accused the principal of Embekweni Primary School of turning parents against boycotting teachers.

The teachers, who allegedly forced school girls to remove their uniforms and clean classrooms wearing only their panties, returned to school on Monday after two weeks.

Union secretary Mxolisi Dimaza accused the principal, Pakamile Tyindyi, of disregarding its site structure at the school.

"The principal is influencing parents against educators. He is the source of discontent."

Tyindyi yesterday declined to comment. He said before the boycott the teachers had tried to reach out to him.

Their return followed marathon discussions with the Education Department and school management.

Tyindyi said schooling had returned to normal and children were excited to have their teachers back. He said that the boycott would not affect the children because they had been working consistently.

Mdantsane education development officer Solomzi Maselwa said there was general excitement after the teachers returned to school.
