A police officer only identified as Constable Muzulu stationed at Mpoengs Police station is accused of sexually molesting 21 pupils while conducting an investigation into sexual abuse at Bulu Primary School.
Constable Muzulu is accused of inserting his fingers into 21 pupils’ private parts and fondling their breasts on Monday. National Police Spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed receiving a report about the incident yesterday. He said Muzulu has since been moved to a different police station pending investigations. Said Nyathi:
I can confirm that a preliminary report was made against the said member of the police force. We are investigating the matter so that we get to the bottom of it and find the facts.
Muzulu reportedly conducted one-on-one sessions with female pupils interviewing them about cases of sexual assault at the school. He is accused of having denied a female teacher permission to be part of the meetings and said he only wanted to be with the pupils alone.
