GDE offers counselling to learners following sexual assault allegations

GDE offers counselling to learners following sexual assault allegations

The Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) has confirmed that 83 learners allegedly sexually assaulted by a security guard will be given the chance to be sent for counselling. 

A 57-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly repeatedly molesting 54 Grade R pupils at a Soweto Primary school. 

Police confirmed that the man who worked as a security guard at the school was arrested on Monday.

GDE spokesperson Steve Mabona confirmed that the guard's services were terminated immediately after the department was informed about what had happened. 

The principal was removed with immediate effect following sexual assault allegations of at least 83 learners by a security guard. 

The GDE said that the number rose from 54 pupils to 83. 

"The patroller has since appeared at the Protea Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, 11 October 2017 and is remanded in police custody to appear on Wednesday, 18 October 2017," the department said.
