A Chadiza Boarding Secondary School teacher has been suspended after he was allegedly caught pants down with a female pupil. Chadiza District Education Board Secretary, Catherine Chirwa, confirmed the development to ZANIS and added that the teacher has since been asked to stay away from work pending disciplinary action. It is alleged that the named teacher has been stalking the pupil for a long time and that the pupil reported to the school matron without much success. Last Thursday, the pupil in question allegedly accepted the teacher’s advances and arranged to meet the teacher at the school football ground at night. But behind the teacher’s back, the pupil mobilized her fellow pupils to hide at the selected meeting. The pupils arranged to pounce on the teacher as soon as it became clear that he wanted to sleep with the pupil. The teacher met the grade 12 pupil and with things going according to their plan, the pupils appeared from their hiding when the teacher was allegedly about to begin the sexual act. Ms Chirwa said the teacher has since been asked to show why disciplinary action should not be taken against him. She further said the pupils who caught the teacher have implicated him in their reports. Ms Chirwa said the normal government disciplinary procedure will now take its course.
