Correctional Services spokesman Manelisi Wolela has denied allegations that student leader Mcebo Dla.
When Jackey Maarohanye took over the premises of Montshepetsa Bosego Primary School in Klipspruit, Soweto, a few years ago, she extended the school and built dormitories, a kitchen and cultural centre.
When a Sowetan team visited the school this week, the premises were a far cry from the once beautiful institution. Signs with names of sponsors are still standing, albeit with the paint peeling.
Behind the high security walls the school buildings have no roof tops, window or door frames.
Only the blue walls are left standing. Everything is gone. The premises feel like a haunted school.
A neighbour, Maria Maseloane, whose nephew was attacked and the community was forced to act in December, said Maarohanye came the day the school was attacked and managed to salvage furniture and other valuables under a police escort.
Sowetan visited Maarohanye's home in Naturena, Johannesburg, yesterday. When we buzzed at the gate, her son Tekano said his mother was not at home. He said she did not want to talk to us because we had caused her enough trouble.
But minutes later, as we were still talking to Tekano, we overheard her on the intercom saying: "Teeks, leave those people alone. You will be late for your lectures."
As we drove back to the office Maarohanye called and said: "Why are you taking pictures of my house? Please leave my house alone.
"I would never come to your house even under dire circumstances. You know I'm suing Sowetan left, right and centre. Call my lawyer for comment."
Her lawyer, Ike Motloung, refused to comment last night. "I'm not interested. If Mama Jackey wants me to talk to you tell her to call me."
