Sphepha teacher appears in court facing three counts of indecent assault.

33-year old Mthokozisi Masuku, a male teacher at siphepha high school, appeared before Tsholotsho resident magistrate Victor Mpofu facing three counts of indecently assaulting three male students at the school.

The first alleged offence was on the 4th of December last year where Masuku is said to have lured the complainant into his cabin before indecently caressing him and asking him to come for a reward but the complainant did not do so.

Early this year, a different complainant also a student, was allegedly asked to take volleyballs to the accused’s cottage where he tried to forcefully take off the complaint’s trousers and angrily ordered him to leave his premises for resisting.

The accused continued with his disgraceful behaviour as he pinched another male student on his privates, accusing him of smoking before ordering him to take off his pants and caressing him improperly.

Masuku was granted 100RTGS$ bail on health conditions.

The case resumes on the 16th of May for the commencement of trial.
