A grade 3 pupil Mufaro Mungezi (9) at Mahachi Primary school at Gecheche Growth point in Chipinge was assaulted by the school's School Development Committee (SDC) Chairperson  Kudakwashe Chiororo sometime last month.

THis was reported by the Zimbabwe Peace Project which said this was as a result of remaining seated when his name was called out on the list of those who had not paid what they owed the school in fees.

"The reason for the gesture by Mufaro was because he knew that his fees had already been paid before the start of the first term. The development came after the child had been sent away from school for reasons of not having paid the fees which made the parents Shadreck Mangezi and Ellinah Sithole suspect that the child was being untruthful as they had paid the fees," said ZPP.

"They instructed him to remain seated in the event that his name was on the list of those who had not yet paid their fees. After the incident the parents approached the school with the receipt indicating the fees payment and the headmaster of the school Lyson Sithole apologized. The perpetrator refused to apologize for his actions. The parents are considering making a police report."
