The society is full of violence  against girls and women, says Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi .
MEC Lesufi totally shocked after an 8-year-old schoolgirl been raped, allegedly by three fellow pupils, at a primary school in Randburg last month.
The three boys aged 12 and 14  appeared in court earlier this week and have been charged with rape.
The incident rape of a grade 2 pupil at the Randburg school  it's unacceptable and very shocking says Lesufi.
“These are young people that need to be role models in our communities… we can’t allow it to continue. The HOD has to make a decision that will send a strong message that says we can’t tolerate this in our schools.”
Lesufi says the department is investigating and will decide on how to handle the matter this week.
The three suspects have been expelled from the school and placed in the care of their parents as legal proceedings against them continue.
