Call for Action on Learner/Teacher Rape Cases

Human rights organisation, SECTION27, has called on provincial education departments to help them with rape cases between teachers and learners.

SECTION27 attorney, Nikkie Steyn, says they have been struggling to get some provincial departments on board to help with these cases, adding that in some instances learners stay away from school because they fear being in contact with teachers who raped them.

Nelson Mandela International Day Launched

The Nelson Mandela Foundation (NMF) has launched the Nelson Mandela International Day for 2011 in Johannesburg.

The day, to be commemorated under the theme ‘Change’, was launched by a panel of schoolchildren in the absence of the recuperating former president.

NMF spokesperson, Sello Hatang, says a decision was made ahead of the launch not to mention Madiba's health to avoid it overshadowing the event.
