Teacher suspended for brutally assaulting two women

The Mpumalanga Department of Education has directed the Nkangala District Director to immediately suspend the teacher from Silamba Secondary School who was recorded on a video that went viral through social media assaulting two women.

The Department spokesperson, Jasper Zwane said that the department is of the view that a person who displays such bad conduct is not fit to stand in front of children to teach.

The Department explained that it will further write to the South African Council for Educators to request them to institute an investigation into the conduct of this teacher and to advise on the course of action to be undertaken against him.

The Mpumalanga MEC for Education, Bonakele Majuba expressed outraged by these visuals and the conduct of the teacher and has strongly condemned his behavior.

“This is really bad conduct especially at a time when the nation is inundated by acts of gender-based violence and the murder of women and children,” said Majuba.

He further added that ordinarily teachers are leaders of society and are expected to teach our communities about the negative impact of violence and gender-based violence in particular and lead by example in this national agenda at all times.

“To suggest that we are disappointed by the conduct of this teacher will be an understatement as we are really appalled by this behavior,” said MEC Majuba.

The man has already been arrested and is out on bail. The police have confirmed that the case is still under investigation.
