Johannesburg - The murder of a teacher, allegedly for failing a pupil, was a shocking and heartless act, the SA Democratic Teachers' Union (Sadtu) in KwaZulu-Natal said on Monday.

"We are deeply saddened and shocked at this callous act. This shows how our teachers are vulnerable because of lack of security," Sadtu said in a statement.

Police spokesperson Vincent Mdunge confirmed that Maureen Lucky Khuzwayo, 52, was killed at a school in Maphumulo on Friday.

Sadtu claims Khuzwayo was murdered "execution style" because she failed a pupil.

"The gunman, who is believed to be related to the learner who failed, waited for all parents to leave, before he stormed into Mrs Khuzwayo's office and pumped two bullets into her stomach while asking her why did she fail that learner," Sadtu said.

"Eyewitnesses said the gunman walked away and returned to shoot Mrs Khuzwayo in the head."

Sadtu called for the arrest of the killer and an investigation. The union said some teachers had expressed reservations about returning to the school before the suspect was brought to justice.
