The information reaching our news desk from the international front has it that a 34-year-old female teacher is being investigated by Gweru police for allegedly sexually assaulting a 17-year-old boy in her class at Guinea Fowl High School.
The media report said Midlands Provincial police spokesperson Inspector Joel Goko confirmed the case but stated clearly that a formal complaint hasn’t been lodged yet.
“Police acting on a tip-off concerning alleged abuse of a 17-year-old boy by his 35-year-old teacher went to Guinea Fowl High School on Tuesday and interviewed the headmaster, the school development committee representatives and the teacher in question,” said Insp Goko.
However, the woman implicated in this denied the allegation. Inspector Joel Goko stressed.
“During investigations, it came to light that the female teacher and the pupil share the same house. At school, she teaches him (subject mentioned) and after that, they are in the same house. Investigations also revealed that there is a third teacher who stays in that house,” he said.
“So the headmaster told the police that the school was investigating the matter. The female teacher refuted the allegations saying they were unfounded. She said she knows the pupil because she teaches him and after work or classes they share the same house.”
Meanwhile, the young boy in question could not be interviewed because he is writing his final exam. But the matter is still under investigation.
