Legally married lesbian parents told to split up or son will be expelled from school

(Editor's note: Same-sex marriage is legal in South Africa.)

MPUMALANGA, South Africa -- An Mpumalanga lesbian couple has been told to split up, or their son will face expulsion from school, it was reported on Wednesday.

Legally married Samantha (27) and Kally Mabe (26) told The Star newspaper that they were called to a meeting with the principal of Secunda Highveld Christian School and were told their homosexuality was problematic.

They were also accused of falsifying the information stating their sexual orientation in the school's application letter.

"We never hid the fact that [our son] has two mothers and I filled in my details under the section in the form that asks for mother's details and Sam filled in the area that said 'Father/Guardian', but filled in her title as Mrs," the boy's biological mother Kally said.

The couple was initially summoned to the meeting last month, after the child told the teacher he had two mothers. Later, another meeting was called with a pastor present.
