CHIBOMBO HEADTEACHER CLOSES SCHOOL AFTER BEING CLOBBERED, PUPILS PROTEST

By Martin Akende & Alvin Siandabile in Chibombo

PUPILS at Chiyuni Secondary School in Chibombo District of Central Province have taken to the streets to demand for the reopening of their school which their headteacher closed after being clobbered by members of the community.

It is reported that on Sunday, members from a certain family in Chibombo clobbered the said headteacher after picking up a quarrel and the head teacher subsequently closed the school with pupils reporting for class but without anyone to attend to them.

Tired of the uncertainty surrounding the disruption at their school, the pupils this morning took to the streets in a peaceful protest to push management to reopen the school.

When contacted for a comment over what is happening at his school, the headteacher referred all queries to the District Education Board Secretary who could not be reached by press time.

However, Chibombo District Commissioner Lloyd Kayeka confirmed the development but could not give details of what transpired.

    For the first time I have heard this, there must be an issue for him to be clobbered otherwise, the community will not let him Scot Free. Let them discuss the issue as soon as possible for them not to disturb the calendar.

    Thid is unacceptable by pupils how can they clobber the head teacher and expect things to remain the same the community and the headteacher they resolve their indifference and if the pupils are problem they must be displined

  4. Can teachers be protected in rural schools traditional leaders need to be engaged in efforts aimed at protecting civil servants from unruly villagers

  5. People in rural areas don’t really care about school, I have been there before and can testify. When schools are not taken there again they start complaining.
