Married South African history teacher busted after sleeping with five students

A married history teacher in South Africa slept with five pupils at her elite school, a painstaking investigation has revealed.

Thirty year old Fiona Viotti was found to have slept with the boys at Bishops Diocesan College in Cape Town between 2013 and 2019.

Reports described her as the niece of former South African national rugby coach Nick Mallett.

The school was said to have called in lawyers to investigate Viotti after an 18-year-old pupil claimed he had been involved in an ‘intense’ sexual relationship with her, explaining she became controlling when he tried to end it.

Viotti resigned suddenly in October just days before the allegations were made public. 

Investigators found that the water polo team coach had been bedding pupils for at least six years, targeting boys who were over the age of consent.

Reports said the affairs took place before and after she married 32-year-old venture capitalist Pavo Viotti in 2018.

Ms Viotti is also known to have filmed explicit videos of herself.

The probe found that she breached school codes and the code of ethics laid down by the SA Council of Educators.

She may never be able to teach again.
