oprah Oprah Disappointed, Former School Matron Acquitted On All Charges

Oprah Winfrey is disappointed after the former matron who abused girls at her Johannesburg school was acquitted of all charges.

The incident occurred in 2007, at which time Oprah publicly voiced her pain and distress over the thought of abuse occurring at her school.

Tiny Virginia Makopa was accused of trying to kiss and fondle girls. She was also accused of physically abusing students and a supervisor. The court threw the case out, stating there was lack of evidence. Despite the ruling Winfrey says she is proud of the girls who came forward.
