A video of two students in full uniform engaging in a s*xual act has been circulating on social media and both learners have since been suspended.

The footage shows two Westridge High students engaging in an explicit act at Westgate Shopping Centre. The incident is said to have taken place on the afternoon of Friday, 7 February.

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi on Thursday announced that two grade 12 learners depicted in a video circulating on social media engaging in a s*xual act have been suspended.

The department’s Steve Mabona said: “The disciplinary process will be facilitated on 24 February 2020. It’s quite discouraging and there’s disgust with what we’ve witnessed.”
