"If we have to fight drugs, weapons and sexual abuse, we will need the police, I don't want my teachers to be police," Lesufi said.

It's alleged that the police officers were conducting a search as part of a school-based crime prevention programme on Thursday, when the learners allegedly assaulted them and smashed their cars.
