One of the teachers appeared in Nquthu Magistrate’s Court yesterday on two counts of rape, two counts of sexual grooming and one of sexual assault.
A video allegedly shows the teacher and three females, said to be pupils, having sex. The teacher went into hiding after the video went viral. He handed himself over to police in Durban on Sunday.
Police spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Thulani Zwane said the suspect was remanded in custody until his bail application on September 7.
After a visit to the school by KwaZulu-Natal education MEC Mthandeni Dlungwane, more girls have come forward, claiming the teacher had sex with them, too.
A Sunday Times report said one of the women in the video , a 27-year-old, said although she was not a pupil at the time the video was made, her relationship with the teacher had started while she was at school.
“I was shocked when I learnt about the video and I watched it a little bit. I didn’t know that he was taking a video of us having sex,” she said. The video appears to have been shot on a cellphone.
