MELMOTH: BOYS HAVE TEACHER ARRESTED
A TEACHER (41) was arrested in Melmoth on Wednesday for allegedly molesting five boys from his school.
Police spokesperson Captain Thulani Zwane said the pupils were allegedly invited by their teacher to sleep over at his home. “Then later at night he al- legedly approached them and made sexual advances to them while touching their bodies,” Zwane added.
It is believed that the incidents started in February, but only came to light on Monday when one of the boys went to the principal. “We intend to oppose the granting of bail and encourage any victim of this alleged unacceptable conduct by the educator to come forward,” Zwane said.
The teacher was due to appear in court yesterday.
The Education Department said it was unaware of the matter. — WWR.
