Tuesday, November 14, 2023 – A resident pastor and educator at St Peter’s Combined Christian School in Mohlaletsi village in Sekhukhune District, Limpopo, South Africa, has been suspended for allegedly assaulting a female student.

The resident pastor, identified as Diketso Matibidi, allegedly flogged the Grade 12 learner for being late to the Sunday church service on the 12th of November, 2023.

According to reports, Diketso called out the student in front of the entire congregation and then allegedly proceeded to beat her with a sjambok, a type of whip commonly used in South Africa.

The student’s parents have expressed outrage over the incident, stating that their child is now traumatized and unable to focus on her studies.

However, other students came forward to corroborate the student’s story, saying that they witnessed the beating.

The incident has sparked outrage among parents and community members, who called for Diketso to be removed from the school and for the school to take disciplinary action against him.
