Two educators from Bonkolo senior secondary school in Dutywa in the Eastern Cape, have been put on precautionary suspension by the department of Education. They are accused of being involved in the impregnation of learners at the school. Many parents and the community are reeling with anger and shock due to the allegations. The South African Council for Educators received 191 complaints of misconduct of a sexual nature by teachers on learners in the 2021/2022 financial year. 20 of those complaints were from the Eastern Cape.
