As you might’ve read, the headmistress of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy in South Africa has lost her job... because a dorm matron got charged with sexual assault and other crimes against students.
The ousted headmistress is Lerato Nomvuyo Mzamane. South African by birth, Mzamane is now in Philadelphia, where she formerly worked as a private-school administrator.
L.N. Mzamane had been recommended for the gig by Joan Countryman (pictured) of Philadelphia, a consultant to Oprah Winfrey on the Leadership Academy project.
Last Friday, the Philly Daily News published an article mentioning both L.N. Mzamane and Joan Countryman.
Guess what happened?
The correction published on Saturday tells it all:
“A photo of Joan Countryman was misidentified as Lerato Nomvuyo Mzamane.”
Well, of course it was!
