A video has gone viral on social media, which showed a pupil mocking and manhandling his teacher in class.
A grade 10 pupil of Lenasia South Secondary School was caught on video taunting and groping his teacher.
The footage is believed to be taken by one of his classmates, who can be heard giggling in the background.
The video starts off with the learned confronting the teacher, who tries to get the student to behave. The teacher is then seen returning to another learner's desk.
However, this does not discourage the young man from his task and he is at one point seen caressing the teacher's face while he helps the other pupil.
The teacher tries to get the learner to stop and he ends up sitting at desk behind the teacher, where he is then filmed grabbing the educator's butt.
TimesLIVE reported the learner has since been suspended pending a disciplinary process, which is set to take place on 17 August.
Gauteng MEC Panyaza Lesufi visited the school on Tuesday to express his displeasure and to apologise to the teacher who suffered as a result of the boy's bad behaviour.
It appears school kids are getting out of hand. Briefly.co.za reported earlier of a girl who showed up at school drunk.
The video of the wasted learner gathered quite the response on social media.
