CAPE TOWN- The Western Cape Social Development department has said they will provide counselling to 31 children who were mentioned in a “sex list” that has gone viral on social media.
The children whose names appear on the list are all believed to be minors who attend various schools in the Atlantis area.
The Western Cape education department is working with social workers to identify and track down students who were mentioned on the list, most of the names were girls.
Sihle Ngobese spokesperson for the Social Development MEC said they are taking the case as cyberbullying and the department is taking this incident very seriously.
“Cyberbullying can be devastating to the emotional and psychological wellbeing of the victims, especially if they’re children. We’re extremely concerned at reports that one of the girls mentioned in the sex list has allegedly attempted to commit suicide,” she said.
