Klofies head, deputy won't quit

2009-04-20 09:22
Pretoria - The principal and deputy of one of Pretoria's top schools have refused to resign from their positions following allegations of funding irregularities, Beeld reported on Monday.

Waterkloof High School head Dr Christo Becker and his deputy Andre Eloff had informed the school they would not resign, it said.

The pair had been implicated in the maladministration of school funds, running into millions of rands.

The Gauteng education department is expected to announce on Monday whether Becker and Eloff would be suspended.

It confirmed on Friday that it was investigating "the alleged mismanagement of funds at Hoërskool Waterkloof in Pretoria by the Principal Dr Christo Becker and one of his Deputies Mr Andre Eloff".

This followed an extraordinary forensic audit of the school's finances required last year by the School Governing Body (SGB).

The audit was conducted in December and the results were handed over to the SGB on Monday April 13.

Becker is the father of Christoff Becker, one of the so-called Waterkloof Four, currently serving a 12-year sentence for the assault and murder of a homeless man.
