Swindle: Parents demonstrate against Gwanda headmistress



GWANDA – Parents at Garanyemba Primary School in Gwanda held a demonstration against their headmistress on Tuesday last week accusing her of inflating school fees paid by a donor and pocketing the difference.
The parents got up in arms against Audrey Moyo allegedly after Edu Foundation, an NGO covering needs for less privileged unearthed some irregularities and threatened to pull out.

Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education spokesperson Taungana Ndoro confirmed the matter and said that it was under investigation.
Parents stormed the school and ordered Moyo to leave.
School Development Committee chairperson, Godfrey Moyo said Moyo allegedly told Edu Foundation that fees was $20 when it was $8,66. She allegedly produced fake receipts and pocketed the difference.

“The head told Edu Foundation that fees is $20 yet it’s $8.66 per term. She produced fake receipts without duplicates and now the donor is threatening to pull out and as parents we are saying it is better for the head to leave,” said the SDC chair.
“We are carrying out investigations on the allegations of abuse of funds so we don’t have the figures yet,” said Ndoro.
