More than 80 pupils sexually assaulted at a Joburg primay school

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi

This comes after it emerged that the 57-year-old security guard at AB Xuma Primary School in Orlando East, Soweto had sexually assaulted 54 pupils at the school, some as young as six years old and in grade R as far back as in February.

When questioned about the matter the school Principal merely said: "I am not going to get involved", showing a complete disregard for the gravity of this issue.

"It's us who have failed these children, we must take responsibility".

The principal said she was only made aware of the claims on 29 September and acted immediately.

The entire management team of a Soweto primary school - including the principal - have been removed from their positions after a school patroller was allowed to molest up to 83 children.

The department said this was "necessitated by the seriousness of the allegations of sexual assault" of about 54 learners by the school's scholar patroller.

The department will soon engage with the School Governing Body to establish reasons why they should not be dissolved.

An independent body has also been appointed to investigate all the allegations levelled against the principal and the school's management.

"We remain grateful to all the stakeholders, especially the Teddy Bear Clinic and social support services. We are left without words", he said to EWN.

"We would like to apologise to our learners, educators and employees at schools for the inconvenience caused". We urge all residents and learners to continue reporting cases of abuse against our children.
