ZAKA – The case of two Mutonhori High School 'A' level pupils who attacked a teacher for seizing their cell phones has taken a new twist after the teacher reported the pupils to the police for assault, TellZim News has learnt.
Amon Munodzana clashed with the pupils (names withheld for professional reasons) earlier this month after they demanded that he returns the cell phones that he had seized from where they were on charge in the school library.
The pupils attacked him, pulling his private parts after he refused to release the phones. The teacher had refused to release the phones before the pupils had served their punishment.
The matter was reported to the district education office and the pupils were reprimanded and send back to school.
It has, however, been learnt that the Public Service Commission later intervened on behalf of Munodzana, recommending the suspension of the pupils and 'forcing' the teacher to report the matter to the police.
When contacted for comment, Munodzana confirmed the new development saying the case was due to be heard before the courts of law.
"I reported the matter and the pupils were picked up by the police. They were later released and are back at school. The matter will be heard in court but I don't know the date yet," said Munodzana.local
