gavel thumb100 News24 reports that a security guard accused of sexually assaulting up to 87 girls at a Soweto primary school where he worked was expected to appear in the Protea North Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.  

When the news broke last week, the number of pupils alleged to have been sexually assaulted stood at 54, however the number has since risen to 87.  The man was arrested 9 October after a case was opened by two pupils - one in Grade 2 and another in Grade 6 – who reported that they had been subjected to the assaults since February 2016.  Gauteng education spokesperson Steve Mabona said social workers and a team from the Gauteng education department had been deployed to the school.
