A primary school teacher in Pretoria has been removed from his post amid allegations of sexual assault.
The 52-year-old is facing criminal charges after he allegedly molested several pupils between the ages of 11 and 16 at a farm school in the north of Pretoria.
Gauteng Eduction MEC Panyaza Lesufi says a law firm will be appointed to assist the families affected.
The teacher has been withdrawn immediately, and we will also as a department appoint a legal firm which will assist us...— Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng Education MEC
