Western Cape MEC of Education Debbie
Schafer has raised her concerns regarding an article about an alleged rape game
that learners are playing at school.
Allegedly the report claims that the boys
chase after the girls and pretend to rape them.
In a statement MEC Schafer said if this
game is true then this reflects a serious problem with our society.
Ministerial Spokesperson Jessica Shelver
said the Western Cape Department has received no report from the public or from
any of our schools engaging in this game.
Shelver said the department has now
launched a full investigation into the matter and district officials will visit
the schools and engage with principals and learners on this matter.
“Rape is not a game the levels of sexual
abuse in our country are at an unacceptable high. The WCED will do whatever we
can to educate our learners that this kind of behaviour is just not on. We also
appeal to parents and institutions to educate children at home and after school
about the differences between right or wrong.” Shelver added.
