Oprahâ€™s got another problem at her Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in Johannesburg, South Africa. The body of a new-born baby was found at the school after a 17-year-old gave birth to it on Wednesday, police said. Police could not confirm if the baby had been murdered or died of natural causes, Captain Shado Mashobane said.
â€œYes the girl gave birth to the baby at the school, but we canâ€™t confirm what happened to it. A case of concealment of death is being investigated,â€ he said.
The 17-year-old girl, who was a pupil at the school just outside Johannesburg, was taken to the Midvaal Hospital, according to News24.com. Beeld newspaper on Friday reported that the babyâ€™s body was found in a plastic bag filled with bloodied clothes after the girl was taken to hospital. In October 2007, a female school staffer was accused of physically and sexually abusing students. Also, in of 2010 Winfrey settled a defamation lawsuit filed by one of the headmistresses at the Academy before the trial began.
