The former school teacher accused of stabbing school principal Nothemba Lebepe, at Paul Mosaka Primary School in Pimville in Soweto, will be applying for bail.

The former school teacher accused of stabbing school principal Nothemba Lebepe, at Paul Mosaka Primary School in Pimville in Soweto, will be applying for bail on Tuesday.

The incident took place earlier this month on the school premises where the disgruntled teacher smashed Lebepe’s car window, dragged her out and stabbed her multiple times.

It is believed the disgruntled teacher had been fired from the school last year for allegedly forging his qualifications.

His first attempt at bail was unsuccessful and he will make a second application at the Lenasia Magistrate’s Court.

He has been charged with attempted murder and malicious damage to property.

Lieutenant Kay Makhubela of the SAPS says children and teachers who witnessed the violent attack were taken for counselling.

"Principal Lepere is also receiving medical assistance in hospital and she was in a stable condition yesterday," he says.
