A 26-year-old teacher appeared in the Mount Ayliff Magistrate’s Court on Thursday, 27 October. He was arrested on Tuesday after two learners told their parents they were raped by the suspect.
TWO TEENS WERE IMPREGNATED BY AN ALLEGED RAPIST
The alleged rapist teacher is employed at Ntsizwa High School in the Eastern Cape where both victims are enrolled.
The accused reportedly forced himself on the Grade 12 learners – who are aged 18 and 19 –in the school’s strong room on multiple occasions.
“He would allegedly lure the victims to the strong room, lock it from the inside, overpower them, rape them, and threaten them if they told anyone,” said National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson Luxulo Tyali.
The victims told their classmates after the alleged rapes. However, the suspect was only arrested on 25 October after they informed their parents and they both discovered they are pregnant.
The teacher is charged with two counts of rape. His case has been postponed to 4 November when he is expected to make a formal bail application.
