Allegations of sexual abuse at a North Coast school have raised their ugly head.
A Groutville resident is angry and filled with fear after her five-year-old daughter was allegedly sexually abused by two grade six boys at a local primary school.
According to the mother, her child came back from school on Thursday, June 7, and she noticed that there was something wrong with her.
“When I was bathing her, I noticed something unusual on her underwear and asked if someone had touched her private part. She started crying and said she was scared to talk because the boys said they would hit her.
“She finally told me that they took her to the school’s toilet and touched her private part.”
The mother said she went to the school on Monday morning with her child and teachers asked the girl to point at the boys who touched her.
“I was told by the principal to go to the clinic and when I got there, they did an HIV test and checked if anything happened to her. They confirmed that she had been violated and the matter was reported to the police.”
On Tuesday the child was also taken to Thuthuzela Care Centre and a doctor confirmed her story.
“I am now scared to send her to the school due to safety reasons. She has not been going to school since last Monday.”
Umhlali SAPS spokesperson Captain Vinny Pillay confirmed that the incident was reported to the police and they still investigating the matter.
