Indecent assault: teacher suspended

2014-06-07 00:00

THE teacher from Richmond Primary School who was this week convicted of two counts of indecent assault, has been suspended by the KwaZulu-Natal Education Department.

Department spokesperson Muzi Mahlambi told The Witness that a letter notifying the teacher, Robin Radley, of his suspension was sent to him.

Mahlambi said Radley has been teaching for the past 26 years.

Radley (52) pleaded guilty in the Pietermaritzburg Regional Court this week to indecently assaulting two 13-year-old pupils in 1993.

The South African Democratic Teachers’ Union (SADTU) midlands branch said it was premature for them to comment about the matter.
