Ex-school polo coach in Joburg court for sexual assault, murder attempt

JOHANNESBURG, November 22 – The former waterpolo assistant coach accused of preying on students from Parktown Boys High School in Johannesburg, is expected to appear in the South Gauteng High Court on Wednesday.


The man, 22, cannot be named as he has not yet pleaded. He faces 160 charges ranging from rape, sexual assault and attempted murder.


He was seen on CCTV touching a learner inappropriately and making his way into one of the dorm rooms at the schools boarding facility. He resigned when allegations of sexual assault and rape were levelled against him. He was, however, arrested and the former coach is out on bail.
