The teacher in the KwaZulu-Natal high school s#x video has been arrested and will appear in court on Monday morning.
The 45-year-old father of five was suspended from his position at Ekucabangeni High School in Nquthu after a video of him having sex with three different women was circulated on social media.
The man fled the school after enraged community members attempted to burn down his cottage near the school.
It has also emerged that both the South African Council of Educators (SACE) and the Gauteng Department of Education are investigating claims that he was previously accused of the same offence‚ one of them at Mgazi High School‚ also in Nquthu.
The man’s lawyer‚ Bruce Macgregor‚ said the teacher vehemently denied all allegations against him. He also denied that the girls were his pupils – or even schoolgirls at all.
Dlungwane’s spokesman Kwazi Mthethwa confirmed the teacher’s arrest in Ulundi on Sunday. He will appear in the Nquthu Magistrate court on Monday morning.
The KwaZulu-Natal Department of Education last Thursday sought to rebuff “media reports…that the accused in the sexual video case denies that the people he is seen with in the video are learners”
