Forensic Cop accused of molesting two learners from AB Xuma Primary School in Orlando

Gauteng Department of Education released a media statement indicating that it has learnt of another case of sexual assault against two learners at the AB Xuma Primary School in Orlando East. The alleged perpetrator is a SAPS Forensic Investigator who is part of the team to investigate sexual assault cases at the school.

The statement read as follows:

We are dismayed, saddened and disappointed that the two learners were also victims in the case currently before the court. That is the case against the patroller. The children have now become victims of sexual assault twice by different people.

The incident occurred on Monday, March 12,  2018, when the investigator visited the victims at the school to prepare for the Court appearance. It is alleged that the investigator sexually molested the two Grade Three learners aged seven (7) and eight (8) years old respectively.

The matter was escalated to the Family and Child Services, who came to the school to interview the affected learners and their parents.

The said Forensic Officer has been withdrawn from the case with immediate effect and a sexual assault case opened against him by the parents at Orlando Police Station.

MEC Panyaza Lesufi said: “These allegations are shocking and disturbing. A person entrusted with protecting children has violated their trust and that of their parents. This man should meet the full might of the law”.

It is unfortunate and regrettable that this incident occurred to the very same learners who were previous victims of the school patroller, in the hands of someone entrusted to ensure their safety.
