Teacher held for sexual abuse of Day Care children

A Day Care school teacher is at the center of police investigations for allegations of sexually abusing a number of day care kids.

The Gaborone City Council may apply for the closure of the Day Care Center in Broadhurst after it emerged that the center is not registered and already is making news headlines following the sexual abuse accusations that have hit the center.

Interviewed by The Telegraph on Monday, the Station Commander of Broadhurst Police Station, Superintendent Counsel Moyo, said, “We are questioning a twenty-six-year-old man who is alleged to have sexually abused day care children.”

Moyo said there are about four reported cases.

“I cannot rule out that the number of abused kids may increase as the investigation intensifies,” he said.

Police said they were informed by the parents that a certain teacher is abusing their kids while they are at school.

“So far, we have identified one person who could be the prime suspect,” said Moyo, adding that preliminary investigations have revealed that the teacher allegedly puts his manhood into the months of the kids for his sexual pleasure.

“This is a very sensitive matter, therefore, we can not reveal the identity of the center as yet because this involves kids,” Moyo said.

Asked about the character of the suspect, Moyo said, “I am not in a position to discuss the character of the suspect with the media.”
He said the suspect is not in police custody as yet.

Moyo said that as soon as investigations are complete, a docket will be sent to the Directorate of Public Prosecution who will decide whether to prosecute the case or not.
He further said that it appears that the center is not yet registered and the Gaborone City Council is also aware of its non compliance.
