20 Loreto High School students suspended after allegedly being caught having group s3x
A school in Silobela, Midlands Province of Zimbabwe, Loreto High School has suspended about 20 students for allegedly engaging in sexual activities during the June examination period.
The incident which has left parents questioning the logic behind suspending students just before exams was confirmed by Midlands Provincial Education Director Mr. Jameson Machimbira who said:“Yes, we received information that some pupils both male and female from Loreto High School had been suspended following reports that they were caught engaging in unconfirmed sexual activities. I received phone calls from some affected parents who wanted the Ministry (Primary and Secondary Education) to intervene citing the timing of the suspensions. So, we sent a team to investigate the matter on Friday and they are still to give me a report. So, I am waiting for the report.”
One of the parents of the suspended students told the state media;“My son is currently doing Form Four, and is going to write his final examinations in December as advised by the Government. We were notified by the boarding master that they wanted us as parents at the school on October 13. Before I knew it, I was advised to come and collect my child since they had expelled them from school because they were allegedly having se_xual affairs.”
Parents of the suspended students spoke to the publication and said they were disturbed by the development since their children are supposed to sit for exams in less than 6 weeks from now. One of the students who is prophesying innocence in the matter has reportedly gone on a hunger strike in a bid to seek an audience with the authorities.
When contacted for comment on the Issue at Loreto High School, the Minister Of Education Cain Mathema he was ready to listen to anyone who wants the issue solved:We will do everything we can to protect the children and I’m ready if any Honourable Member has that evidence let them come to my office and show me and we will do the investigations. We will go out of our way to stop every criminal activity that may be taking place in schools. We are ready to listen to everybody, every parent, every guardian or community member; if you see any indecent activity by any child, please bring that information to my office.
