JOHANNESBURG - KwaZulu-Natal's social development MEC Nonhlanhla Khoza on Wednesday said she was calling for an investigation after a video of a man sexually assaulting a learner in full school uniform went viral on social media.
The video was circulated last week.
The incident was initially reported as taking place at KwaNxamalala village in Nkandla.
"We are really taken aback by this incident. The circulation of the video of a learner being sexually assaulted is sickening. We hope the law will take its course and rid society of these monsters. As a department, we are always making a clarion call for our communities not to allow their children to suffer such an abuse," said Khoza.
Khoza called on communities to report anyone distributing child pornography to the police.
