gautengThe Citizen reports that the former Reiger Park school principal allegedly caught on video having sex with a pupil has been described by someone who knows him as a “notorious womaniser” who allegedly abused his power to gain sexual favours from female pupils.  

Parents and pupils have been left traumatised and angered by the emergence of a video apparently depicting the principal and three teachers committing sexual acts with at least one pupil and a person employed by the school.  The pupil is alleged to have been 18 at the time the video was filmed three years ago.  Police are still trying to track her down and establish the identity of the other female participant, who is believed to be a sub-contracting worker for the school’s catering service.  The three teachers in the video have since been removed from the school, but have not been fired.  They have to report to the school’s district office daily while an investigation is under way.  Despite the principal having resigned last year, Gauteng MEC for education Panyaza Lesufi said he only learnt of this last week, a week after the principal’s last official day.
