A case of inappropriate sexual advances has been opened against the acting principal of Qaqamba Senior Secondary School in the Eastern Cape by one of the school's pupils

. The New Age reportst that Boniswa Lusu* has accused Lulama Menziwa of failing to protect her against corporal punishment unless he gave into his sexual advances and also sending inappropriate messages to her via Whatsapp after he got a hold of her contact details from an SGB (School Governing Body) form. Lusu has reportedly filed a complaint with the department of education as well as the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) for the messages Menziwa has been sending her since he allegedly starting texting her in March this year. The inappropriate messages allegedly include Menziwa texting, “I am so cold, I want to be between thighs” and that he wanted to take her to a B&B to "chill", as quoted by the publication. On April 13, Menziwa stopped beating about the bush and told Lusu to “open so I can see what is underneath the skirt” and told her,  "come, let me have sex with you” as allegedly expressed on Whatsapp. A week later the 48-year-old allegedly sent a message to Lusu saying “I am so horny." Menziwa also referred to Lusu as 'babe' but later revealed to the publication that ran the story, SNN, that he referred to all students in this manner. "This is how I refer to all the pupils at school. I realised too late that this is not an appropriate way to refer to school pupils,” he reportedly told SNN. Lusu has allegedly been out of school since April 22 and since filing the report, was reportedly adviced to not return to school and that the principal would be suspended, the department also told her that they would be contact with her on May 7 and 8 but have failed to do so. But Menziwa is reportedly sorry about what he has done. “I admit what I was doing to Lusu was wrong. The last time I spoke to her, I apologised,” he allegedly told SNN Lusu is allegedly not the student to have experienced sexual advances from a member of staff. "There is another teacher who is also demanding sex from another pupil from school. My schoolmate is in the same situation but she refuses to speak out about it," Lusu allegedly told the publication.

The SAHRC has confirmed to the New Age that the case is being investigated.
