Limpopo teacher given 24 hours to appeal suspension

Tuesday, May 29, 2018

A Limpopo teacher has been given 24 hours to make representations on why his suspension should be repealed after he was caught on camera administering corporal punishment.

“It is unacceptable to openly break the law in this fashion. Corporal punishment is a thing of the past and has been outlawed for years now. It cannot be tolerated in 2018 or any other time,” said Limpopo Education MEC Ishmael Kgetjepe.

According to Kgetjepe, the teacher has been given 24 hours to make representations why he should not be suspended.

The teacher from Modubatse Secondary School, whose school is in Kgapane township, Tzaneen District, was served with a letter of intention to suspend him after he beat pupils for allegedly making a noise. – SAnews.gov.za
