JOHANNESBURG – Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi says the Department supports the decision to suspend a teacher involved in the kidnapping of Grade R learner Amy’Leigh de Jager.
The six-year-old was kidnapped on Monday morning outside the Kollegepark Primary School.
Three suspects, one known to the De Jager family, were arrested on Wednesday.
“We have endorsed the decision that has been taken by the SGB to immediately suspend the teacher concerned.
