Two teachers from KwaZulu Natal have been suspended for allegedly being in a romantic relationship with a pupil. Both men are accused of being involved with the 18-year-old from Umlazi Comprehensive High School.

KwaZulu Natal  MEC for Education, Kwazi Mshengu said that the vast majority of educators are consummate professionals who are committed to the teaching profession, but there are those who are still hell-bent to tarnish the image of the otherwise noble profession.   

“As a Department, we have zero tolerance for educators who abuse their profession and take advantage of learners, hence we have taken a decision to suspend the two educators,” said  Mshengu.
