A heartless teacher has been booted out after doing the unthinkable to a little girl leaving many in shock.
A teacher has been sacked by a local South African school after assaulting a little five-year-old girl.
According to Daily Sun ZA, the teacher bathed the student with bleach, leaving her badly scarred. It was gathered that the teacher put the child in bleach to punish her for wetting herself.
The incident happened last Wednesday at the Mmamerafe Early Learning Centre. The child, who also struggles to speak properly, had apparently been at the centre since she was six months old.
The incident, at a creche in Soshanguve, Tshwane, has been strongly condemned by the Gauteng social development department.
MEC Nandi Mayathula-Khoza was furious after hearing about what had happened to the child, reported to be autistic.
“The department is bitterly disappointed to hear of toddlers being abused. It is currently National Disability Awareness Month, which should provide us with an opportunity to inspire hope in the ability of South Africans to address the challenges facing people with disabilities,” said the MEC.
