Rape accused Limpopo teacher expected in court

A 50-year old Limpopo school teacher is expected to appear before the Thohoyandou Magistrate’s Court for allegedly raping a pupil.

The accused faces three counts of rape and is expected to apply for bail.

The victim, who is now 20 years old, says the teacher raped her multiple times when she was a 17-years old pupil at Mbilwi Secondary School.

On one occasion, he allegedly offered to assist her with extra lessons but instead took her to a lodge and raped her.

The school made headlines in April after 15-year old Lufuno Mavhunga committed suicide following a bullying incident.
