Gauteng MEC Panyaza Lesufi says an independent probe has been conducted and Bryanston High has a solid case.

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi says there is overwhelming evidence against a teacher facing a charge of sexual assault at Bryanston High School.

The man who was arrested this month has been suspended and will appear before the school governing body for disciplinary a hearing in February.

Lesufi says an independent probe has been conducted and the school has a solid case.

We received a report from the school indicating that they have identified a person they believe is involved in sexual activities with learners and therefore they want permission to convene an independent body that can interview learners without fear. Based on the seriousness of the allegations, they have also advised utilising the child's act as a reference point.

Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng Education MEC

A case was opened, the teacher has already appeared in court and the teacher will appear before the school governing body hearing on the fifth and the sixth of February. We are convinced the case will be concluded there because the evidence is overwhelming.

Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng Education MEC

Lesufi says the necessary support has been provided to pupils. He says an anonymous line has been established for more pupils to come forward.
