The principal was allegedly rushed to hospital but died on arrival around 3pm.

Speaking to IOL on Thursday morning, KZN Education Department spokesperson Muzi Mahlambi said they were still reeling from an incident in which a department official was assaulted this week while monitoring matric exams.

“And then to hear of this incident is most disturbing.” Mahlambi said it seems schools are becoming easy targets.

“Our schools are becoming easy targets for criminals. The issue of crime affects everyone, churches, courts, hospitals, places that are highly guarded are under attack,” he said
