A principal of a school in Reiger Park, east of Johannesburg, is embroiled in an alleged sex scandal after he was allegedly caught on camera having sex with learners in his office, Pretoria East Rekord reports.
The video was circulated on social media where the principal was allegedly seen engaging in several sexual acts with different girls.

The Gauteng MEC for education Panyaza Lesufi on Friday expressed his disappointment and disgust over the video.
Lesufi said the principal resigned in October last year and served his last day on 15 January.
“It must be noted that he is no longer in the employment of the department; however we will report him to the South African Council of Educators to be struck off the roll with immediate effect,” he said.
The department strongly condemned any acts of sexual misconduct in schools and encouraged learners never to listen to anyone who told them not to tell, for fear of victimisation.
Counselling will be offered to affected learners on Monday.
“We appeal to learners, educators and parents to co-operate with all officials sent to the school for necessary intervention into this matter.
“The department has a zero-tolerance stance on allegations of sexual assault and has never hesitated to act,” Lesufi said.
