Lesufi says Ed Dept won't accept Reiger Park principal quitting, want him fired

There’s been public outrage following a sexual abuse scandal at Reiger Park Secondary School in Boksburg. Videos and pictures show the school’s principal having sex with different girls in his office.

Social workers were dispatched to offer counselling and assist in laying criminal charges.

EWN reporter Thando Khubeka talks to Ray White on The Midday report about the media conference held on Tuesday afternoon, and if any action has been taken to have the principal fired.

MEC Panyaza Lesufi gave an update on the sex scandal that happened at Reiger Park Secondary School, says Khubeka. She adds that the MEC said that his Department will be acting on the matter with haste.

He (Panyaza Lesufi) told us that three teachers who were implicated in the video have been removed from the school.

Khubeka says that the MEC also met with pupils and their parents - who are worried and angry at what has transpired at the school.

We learned that the video and the images were taken three years ago.

Khubeka says that the police, who have taken over the investigation, plans to assess if more children have been implicated and affected by what has happened at the school.

MEC Panyaza Lesufi says that the principal did resign, but the resignation came after the videos and images went viral, says Khubeka. She adds that the principal resigned because he got caught out.

The Department is not going to accept his resignation, and they’re attempting to get legal advice to get the principal fired.

Khubeka says that charges need to be laid and the principle needs to be blacklisted. She adds that the council of Educators needs to get involved to take action against the principal.
