MVUMA – Magistrate Constance Mutandwa has sentenced a Chaka Primary School teacher in Chivhu to a month in jail for ordering her students to assault a pupil who failed a Continuous Assessment Learning Activities (CALA) assignment.

Magistrate Mutandwa wholly suspended the sentence and ordered Beatrice Chikomba (46) a Grade 7 teacher at the school to pay US$150 to avoid jail time. 

The assault happened on September 29, 2023, at the school and the pupil sustained a swollen face.

Circumstances are that Chikomba ordered her pupils to assault the pupil for failing to properly do a CALA assignment. 

The pupils used fists and open hands to assault their fellow classmate. The assault stopped after some pupils intervened. 

Takudzwa Mutyavaviri prosecuted.
