The Northern Cape Department of Education has undertaken investigations at Bothitung High School in Kuruman where several learners were reported to have been pregnant.
According to reports, about 30 learners were pregnant, with some allegedly impregnated by teachers at the school.
Northern Cape Department of Education spokesperson Geoffrey van der Merwe reportedly confirmed that action will be taken against the teachers who would be found implicated in this matter.
“Teachers implicated in this matter will be placed on precautionary suspension,” he said.
However, the department could not confirm the number of the the affected learners as reported.
The students are alleged to be receiving stipends in exchange of sexual favors with these teachers.
The incident came to light on Wednesday when a radio station reported that the school had 30 pregnant learners ,three amongst them alleged impregnated by a single teacher.
