A JOBURG school prin­ci­pal has been ar­rested for the al­leged rape of two pupils.

Gaut­eng po­lice spokesper­son Cap­tain Xoli Mbele said the prin­ci­pal of the in­ner-city in­de­pen­dent col­lege was ar­rested on Sat­ur­day.

Mbele said a 15-year-old girl re­ported the al­leged rape in Oc­to­ber. “The girl was liv­ing with the prin­ci­pal at his home with the per­mis­sion of her par­ents be­cause of the dis­tance she had to travel to school. When she re­ported the rape, the par­ents im­me­di­ately re­moved her from the home.”

Dur­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions, an­other pupil came for­ward, also ac­cus­ing the man of rap­ing her.

The man ap­peared in the Jo­han­nes­burg Mag­is­trate’s Court yes­ter­day and was re­manded in cus­tody un­til his bail ap­pli­ca­tion next week. –
