Claim: Durban teacher made porn with boys

2014-08-21 09:33

Durban - A top Durban teacher has been arrested for allegedly getting young boys to make pornographic movies, it was reported on Thursday.

The 48-year-old drama teacher has taught at a number of KwaZulu-Natal high schools and has earned a reputation as a “world-class” teacher, The Mercury reported.

Principals of schools that he had previously worked at were shocked at the allegations.

He will appear in court on Thursday.

Just days ago, the South African Council of Educators revealed that around 100 cases of sexual abuse by teachers are reported every year in South Africa, Eyewitness News reported.

The DA urged the basic education department to take steps to stop teachers from abusing pupils.

In one such case, top Cape Town school Bishops is under investigation for incidents that go back all the way to 1990, it was reported in May.

      I wonder if this teacher was involved in the production of the sex tape at Michael House a few years ago...

      MemeMartin - 2014-08-21 12:24

      I notice how N24 neglects to mention the sex of the teacher. This has got homosexual molestation written all over it...

      Seems as if our education system, like everything else, has degenerated into a cesspool of criminal activity and abnormal behaviour if you go by all the bad news regarding schools/pupils/teachers and education system in general.

      Ann Murray - 2014-08-21 11:58

      @ ShoSho - be careful of saying that Canon equipment was used. Note that the picture is File stock, i.e. it just portrays a camera.

  • Bobbi Magagula - 2014-08-21 23:57

    @Pamela Strydom. Are you suggesting that the victims, school children and, very probably, minors, are to blame for their educator's inappropriate behaviour? If so, shame on you. The school environment must be safe and it is the responsibility of the Dept of Education to take swift action to remove all abusers, not only sexual abusers, from the school environment. My own experience is that the DOE takes far too long to act, which is disgraceful.

  • Carry Greeff - 2014-08-22 19:19

    His profession is to teach not to make porn movies. He must be remove from society for our childrens safety.
