Limpopo MEC for Education Polly Boshielo visited Tubake secondary school placed at Mapatjakeng village in Zebediela.

MEC visits follows after horrific incidents happened were two learners were allegedly raped in separate incident.

The first incident happened on Saturday while the learner was on her way to attend Saturday classes while other incident happened last week Monday.

Boshielo highlighted bush which learners’ passes when going to school as a major cause as perpetrators hide themselves there waiting for leaners.

“The department has sent psychologists team to support victims at school,” said Boshielo.

MEC promised to engage with MEC for Public Works, Roads and Infrastructure to debush the route that learners use as it is not clear.

“I feel bad though for the two children who were raped and my prayers and thoughts are with their families. You know, there is nothing more painful than to see little children raped in this manner, I am really sad about what happened to our children,” said Flora Mojela, mother of a grade 10 leaner at the school.

“I wish I could say something but there are no better words to say than to plead with you to be strong,” explained Flora.
