PARENTS FORM WHATSAPP GROUP TO TERRORIZE HEADMISTRESS | When this statement reached Mpumelelo Primary School headmistress she was left with no choice but to run for the hills fearing for her life.
The headmistress Priscilla Chibeli discovered that one of the former School Development Committee (SDC) members Vasco Joseph Nyoni was having private meetings with some parents where she was always the main agenda.
In some of the group’s WhatsApp chats, they stated that she must fall.
Without wasting time, Chibeli applied for a protection order against Nyoni who appeared to be the mastermind of a group called GEN11.
The parents, whose main agenda was to expose the headmistress, formed a WhatsApp group and it is where they discussed their issues and at one time held a meeting at Nyoni’s home.
“I have problems with Nyoni, one of the parents at Mpumelelo School. He is disturbing me in performing my lawful duties. During parent assembly meetings, he humiliates me as he will be saying I am lying, accusing me of stealing funds and of corrupt activities.
“Of late he is stalking me, monitoring my movements even when going to the bank. I am now scared he might attack me while I am going for school banking. He is also threatening my job security, defaming my character to my seniors,” said the headmistress.
She also revealed that she felt her job was on the line because Nyoni was making reports to the Provincial Education Director and causing confusion at the school by having meetings with some parents at his home.
“I no longer feel secure as he is interfering with school work and current SDC. There are meetings done at his house about the school, causing confusion in the school.
“The statement that they are ‘after my blood’ scares me and I request to be protected by the law,” she said. She was already thinking of running for her life
In response, Nyoni denied the allegations saying the only time he had a conversation with the applicant was during a parents’ meeting where he questioned the audit and financial report.
He also disputed the stalking allegations saying he was a pedestrian and the applicant was mobile.
The presiding magistrate Tancy Dube stated that there is need for the applicant to be protected and though the respondents are allowed to exercise their rights, they should not threaten the complainant’s peace and security.
It was all smiles for the headmistress as the respondents were ordered not to stalk the applicant, threaten her in anyway, defame her or make false allegations.
