There is another scandal at that school Oprah Winfrey set up in South Africa; this one involving the death of a newborn baby of a student who attended the school. Police in the Johannesburg area are looking into whether to file charges in the case involving a student at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy.

According to several reports, a pregnant 17-year-old girl was taken to the hospital on Wednesday last week for excessive bleeding. The body of her baby and bloodied clothes were found in a plastic bag afterward.

In a statement yesterday, the school said it is awaiting the outcome of the police investigation into the incident last week. In the meantime, the school says it is providing counseling for the students in the wake of the latest controversy at the high school.
