Three teachers accused of having sexual relationships with students at Shakawe Senior Secondary School face dismissal after an Investigating Committee recommended their immediate sacking.

The fate of the teachers, ThebeyameMosweu, OsedilweMathodi and Omogolo Cecil Mowaneng, now lies in the hands of the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education.

A member of the Investigating Team looking into the allegations against the teachers, which first surfaced in 2012,told The Voice that they have recommended the teachers’ dismissal.

The source added that it normally takes the Permanent Secretary less than three weeks to approve their recommendations.
The three were amongst six teachers suspended in Februarypending investigations into reported illicit relationships with students.

Ngamiland Region Educational Director Acronews Maseko confirmed that the report is being worked on by Chairman of the Investigating Committee and will be handed to him to deliver to the Permanent Secretary.

He declined to comment on the recommendations other than to say it would be unfortunate if the confidential report had been leaked to the media before an official announcement was made.

When addressing a kgotla meeting in Maun on Monday, Assistant Minister in the Ministry of Education and Skills DevelopmentKeletsoRakhudu, told the gathering that 18 girls had dropped out from Shakawe Senior School last year.

“Fifteen students got pregnant and our hope is that they will be readmitted. Three of them got married.”

Commenting on the marriages he added: “We don’t admit married people in our system and it is unfortunate to have people in the society marrying students.”

When quizzed about the impending dismissal of the teachersRakhudu asked to be given time to look into the matter, but had not responded at the time of going to press.

Parents at the school, who had been demanding that the Ministry take action be taken against the implicated teachers, will be happy with the decision.

Relationships with students are a violation of the teachers’ code of professional conduct, but even though regulations demand that teachers should be dismissed, in the past very little has been done.

    Some things depend on culture, ga se molato go robala student in some areas esp those areas tsa bo Ngami, Chobe, etc. Gape go koba those teachers doesn’t stop them go ba robala, now they will be free go ba robala. That side mosetsana o nyalwa as young as 12 years, eg, ka Seherero.
