gavel thumb100 TimesLive reports that two teachers from the Bothithong High School in the Northern Cape (NC), arrested for sexual crimes, were on Tuesday expected to appear in the Kuruman Magistrate’s Court to apply for bail.  

This would be the second appearance for the 53-year-old and his 35-year-old colleague since their arrest on Friday.  The one teacher faces a charge of sexual assault of a 15-year-old pupil, while the other faces a charge of attempted rape of an 18-year-old.  Reports surfaced last week that the school where they were employed had in the last few years seen a spike in the number of learners falling pregnant‚ with some alleging that their teachers had fathered the children.  The provincial education department could not be immediately reached for comment on the progress on its investigation into the allegations.
