School Dorm Shut Down Because Of Lesbians
A SOUTH African girls’ boarding school outside Durban has closed down a dormitory after accusing 27 residents of being lesbians.
Two girls were caught kissing in the dormitory, which houses 300 students, The Mercury newspaper reported today.
When confronted by school officials, they identified 25 other lesbians in the dorm.
“Twenty-seven learners were involved in this kind of relationship and the school took a decision to close down the hostel,” provincial education department spokesman Mfundi Sibiya told the national broadcaster SABC.
The department has appointed a panel to investigate the issue, but the education department said schools did not have the right to remove students because of their sexual orientation.
