Panyza Lesufi, a Gordon education company, says sexual harassment is a serious matter and students need to feel protected.
He said that despite a suspected sexual misconduct incident at the Parktown Boys High School, it is still one of the best schools in the province.

Lesufi also mentioned the number of women killed in the country recently.
"This country is against its own women.

I want to protect you.
Any other person who feels he is in charge of this school, you have to tell him that the only person in charge is Panyaza Lesufi.
Lesufi says it's water under the bridge.
"I am now convinced that learners know when to report and how to report these events.
They know now that they need to support each other.
Lesufi also wishes the children all the best before the upcoming exam.
"Go and enjoy the exam. you will definitely get support.
