“The affected officials were given fair disciplinary hearing before they were finally expelled,” Mshengu said.

He said the majority of teachers in the province were role models to pupils, and they inspired and encouraged pupils to strive for greatness and fullest potential.

“We do however have a few educators who continue to disappoint in terms of their behaviour in as far as sexual misconduct is concerned. "Children should be safe at school and with their teachers. Teachers and other adults supervising young people build up trust through their close contact every day. So it is particularly damaging when that trust is abused or broken and sexually inappropriate behaviour takes place.”

Mshengu added that the department would not hesitate to isolate any person who took advantage of pupils.

Not enough, though a good riddance by KZN. Evenly if they contested their cases at court of law, they should have been jailed. Why should parents entrust their kids with teachers like? They tarnish image of the other teachers who are delivering a better results to students.

Criminal charges must also be instituted against them

Maybe if all ministers are issued with secondhand pre-loved Geely QQ's,, they will stop having their meetings in 5 star hotels and spend more time doing their jobs. Mara how can u justify R100 000 a month on a car hire when a country is facing inequality, poverty n unemployment. Is it the question of some animals r more equal than others? Our comrades mara 🙊🙊🙊
