Teacher accused of sexual harassment

Vaal Weekly

SHARPEVILLE. - Action still has not been taken against a Mohlodi Secondary School teacher in Sharpeville who allegedly fondled a female learner at the school premises this year.

The incident was apparently brought to the attention of school authorities after the learner blew the whistle on the teacher.

Vaal Weekly was inundated with calls from anonymous people within the Education Department who demanded that justice prevails.

The anonymous callers accused the regional Education Department in Sedibeng East of trying hard to protect the teacher who further embarrassed the school after its disappointing matric results. ...

The teacher who is also an apostolic church priest is said to still be reporting to work months after the allegations surfaced. The learner is also apparently still going to school.
