President Cyril Ramaphosa has condemned the sexual assault of pupils by teachers. He has called on law enforcement authorities to
investigate and arrest the perpetrators.
Ramaphosa addressed South
Africa’s largest teachers’ union, the SA Democratic
Teachers Union (Sadtu) at its congress in
“As educators, your job is that of a parent to the children who come to your schools, you are not supposed to be lovers of children at schools.
“We say Sadtu should stand firm and pledge to not allow teachers to have
sexual relations with learners,” Ramaphosa said to an applause by delegates.
Sadtu is holding its ninth national
congress at Nasrec.
The congress will hold discussions on education, policies and labour.
