The Primary and secondary education ministry has fired a 48 year old Marondera teacher after finding him guilty of fondling a Grade 6 pupil. He was relieved of his duties following a disciplinary hearing by education officials who found him guilty of improper association and abuse. The teacher last week appeared in Marondera Magistrates’ Court facing charged on indecent charges. He pleaded not guilty. It is alleged that the teacher called the girl to his classroom and asked her to pack his bread in a plastic bag inside a storeroom. She notified the teacher that she was done, but the man ordered her back into the storeroom saying she did not pack well. He allegedly followed her in and fondled the juvenile. She latter told her friends before alerting her parents who proceeded to file a report.
