A matric drama exam question asked pupils to describe how to depict a baby rape on stage with a broom handle and a loaf of bread.

A matric drama exam question asked pupils to describe how to depict a baby rape on stage with a broom handle and a loaf of bread, The Witness reported on Wednesday.

The compulsory question, based on Laura Foot Newton's play "Tshepang", required pupils to describe, through the props, how child rape could be dramatically depicted.

Parents, pupils and teachers told the newspaper they intended complaining to the department of education over the question, asking that all pupils be awarded the 15 marks allocated to it.

The memo for marking the exam is expected to be discussed at a meeting in Pretoria on Wednesday.
