About a quarter of the school's 453 pupils have paid the R200 school fee.
"That's why we don't have money. We rely on the subsidy that is given by the department of education and it's very little and it doesn't satisfy our needs‚" Manyoni said.
Less than two weeks ago‚ pupils and their parents embarked on violent protests calling for the school's rank to be lowered to quintile two as they could not afford school fees. The pupils were back in class on Wednesday and "very happy" about Zuma's fine.
"It was actually the pupils who told us about the fine. I don't know how they found out about it on Tuesday but they are happy that some money is coming to us‚" Manyoni said.
On Tuesday Zuma agreed to apologise to the South African public within seven days and pay two schools R30‚000 each for hate speech he made against Derek Hanekom and Pravin Gordhan.
In the letter Zuma described Gordhan and Hanekom as an "anti majoritarian sell-out minority in the ANC who have brazenly and unabashedly spoken out against (President) Zuma on various white monopoly media platforms".
He said Gordhan was one of the most corrupt cadres who‚ as Gandhi‚ "sees black South Africans as low class k…...s" while Hanekom was a "white askari who will do anything to be an obstacle to radical economic transformation and to defend white monopoly privileges."
The conditions of the settlement with the South African Human Rights Commission include that Zuma submit a written apology to the public within seven days of the agreement. The commission will then publish the apology.
The commission had requested that Zuma pay R60‚000 to the Umthombo Secondary School. However‚ his attorney Ayanda Mkhwananzi said the initial agreement was for the money to be paid to Ohlange High School in Inanda.
Magistrate Irfaan Khallil said the Ohlange High School had a significant history and was also impoverished‚ therefore he ruled that Zuma split the R60‚000 between the two schools.
Zuma will have to make his first payment of R10‚000 to Umthombo by June 30. Two further installments of R10‚000 each will have to be paid up by August.
