A rural school in KwaZulu-Natal is in hot water after an explicit video showing one of its teachers having steamy sex with a learner in the school cottage went viral on social media.
The sexual act is alleged to have taken place at Ekucabangeni High School in Nquthu in northern KwaZulu-Natal‚ and has sparked outrage among learners who went on the rampage and burned the cottage after seeing the video.
The enraged learners also demanded that the teacher not be permitted on the school’s premises.
It is alleged that when learners tried to attack the teacher inside the cottage‚ they found another learner inside‚ who could be one of his victims.
However‚ KwaZulu-Natal education authorities could not immediately establish when the incident happened and how the video was recorded.
MEC for Education in KwaZulu-Natal Mthandeni Dlungwane was expected to visit the school on Thursday to find out more details about the incident.
Dlungwane said in a statement on Thursday that he was outraged by the s_ex video.
“This is shocking and I can’t stand the sight of it. We can’t stand this‚ we will deal with this matter and assist learners and other educators. We warn all educators who have s_exual relations with learners‚ because the consequences are dire. There is no room for such people in our system‚” said Dlungwane.
