Teacher sacked for taking S. African boys for penis piercing
JOHANNESBURG (AFP) - A South African teacher who allegedly took three high school pupils to get penis piercings, has been dismissed, a school official said on Wednesday. The teacher at Willowridge School in Pretoria left the school and was the subject of a disciplinary committee after he reportedly took three teenagers to get a style of piercing known as the Prince Albert. Local media reported he also gave the boys male-genitalia-shaped pasta. The man was found guilty of "certain charges" by the national labour arbitrator, Stefano Bruni, head of the school governing board said, refusing to give details.
