New Oprah School Sex Scandal–Lesbian Sexual Harassment At Oprah’s School

O, no! Oprah Winfrey’s South African boarding school for girls has been rocked by it’s second sex scandal in less than two years.


Seven students at The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in Henley-on-Klip, just outside Johannesburg, were suspended last week for sexually harassing their schoolmates, the Afrikaans on Sunday newspaper is reporting.

Other girls were caught fondling each other or trying to get other girls to join them in lesbian liasons, according to the South African press. One 15-year-old was accused of preying on another pupil and forcing other girls to lie to investigators about it.

The scandal comes ten months after 15 girls reported they had been sexually abused by a matron who was supposed to be supervising them. Dorm matron Virginia Tiny Makgobo, 27, was charged with indecent assault, common assault, soliciting a minor to perform an indecent act and verbal abuse of girls at the school.

The Emmy-winning Queen of Talk opened the $46 million school in January 2007 to help high achieving South African girls from low-income families. Students are offered free tuition, books and uniforms, as well as room and board.
