Durban – A KwaZulu-Natal educator accused of allegedly filming himself having sex with pupils was expected to appear in a Nquthu Magistrate's Court on Monday, the provincial department of education confirmed on Sunday.

Provincial education spokesperson Muzi Mahlambi said MEC Mthandeni Dlingwana, who laid charges against the teacher, was expected to be present during the court appearance.

“The eKucabangeni video educator has just been arrested. He is appearing in eNquthu court tomorrow morning [Monday],” said Mahlambi.

The teacher, who cannot be named to protect the identities of the potential victims, was placed on suspension following the revelation.

The police were reportedly investigating a case of statutory rape.

Last week, Bruce Macgregor, an attorney acting for the teacher, wrote to News24 pleading his client’s innocence.

"We note that these media reports are clearly not based on any independent investigations conducted by the media concerned and further, that our client has perpetrated these acts is reported as fact in circumstances where you have no basis for making this allegation."

Macgregor reportedly wrote that the teacher claims that the sex videos show him and previous partners who are of age.

"We are instructed that Mr **** denies having sexual relationships with minor learners and strongly disputes the existence of such video clips and points out the video clips relate to videos of himself and previous sexual partners who were at the time majors and certainly not accordingly minor learners,” he wrote.
