A teacher has landed in the Police net for flogging two boys in their private parts, a report from Zimbabwe said.
The incident happened at Lower Gweru Mission Schoo where the deputy headmaster flogged the two boys on their privates, accusing them of being involved in romantic affairs with fellow female students.
The affected students are aged 17 and 16. They have been rushed to the nearby hospital for medical attention.
One of the was said to be in a critical condition due to injuries he sustained from the beating.
It was gathered that the 51-year-old deputy head Jabulani Sibanda was still assisting police with investigations at Maboleni Police Station.
“I am yet to get the details, but even if I get them, I will refer you to national police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi because I am not at liberty to comment on Government officials,” Midlands provincial police spokesperson Inspector Joel Goko was quoted as saying.
A source said, “He told the boys that he wanted to beat their private parts.
“The privates of one of the boys got swollen after the beating, and he has been failing to pass urine.
“Doctors had to put a tube to assist him. He is said to be in a serious condition,” a witness said.
The deputy teacher also forcibly dislocated the spinal cord of one of the boys as he tried to resist the beating.
Parents of the students had yet to react at the time of this report, though they’ve briefed.
