School Deputy Head In Court For Forcing Pupil To Undress

A Deputy School head at Lukosi Secondary school in Hwange has appeared before Hwange magistrate Godfrey Ntando Dube on allegation of forcing a form 1 pupil to undress in front of teachers.

Allegations are that sometime in September the accused Possenta Kwidini (50) in the company of other teachers was sitting in the textile technology and design room at the school, when she saw the girl (15) tucking her blouse into her skirt behind the room.

Kwidini allegedly called her and asked why she was moving with her zip down. The deputy head is alleged to have ordered the girl to unzip her skirt and the girl complied but held the skirt.

Allegations are that she ordered the pupil to stop holding the skirt and she resisted the order. The deputy head then threatened to beat up the girl, who promptly dropped the skirt.

Kwidini allegedly then ordered the pupil to dress up and leave the room. The girl left the room and went to the classroom, where she discussed her ordeal with other pupils, leading to Kwidini’s arrest.

She is denying the allegations.

The magistrate remanded her to December 9 for the continuation of trial.
