ZRP Arrest Teacher Who Violently Assaulted A Student

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has confirmed the arrest of a Harare teacher who violently assaulted a student.

The arrest follows a national public outcry after a video of Chingwaru physically assaulting an unidentified male student went viral on social media Thursday.

A two-minute long video, captured in a classroom at the institution, shows Chingwaru assaulting the student with his belt, headbutts, and fists. The video was shared on social media this Thursday. In the video, other students can be heard in the background begging Chingwaru to stop the assault of their colleague before he hurt him.

In a statement, the police said confirmed that the assault took place on 14 October 2021 at Harare Einstein Tuition Centre:

“The ZRP confirms the arrest of Michael Freeman Chingwaru (39), a maths teacher at Harare Einstein Tuition Centre for assaulting a student (18) at the same institution on 14/10/21 at 1030 hrs.

“The lower sixth student was found in the ordinary level class seeing (watching) some movies during lesson time and ordered to go to his class. Instead, he went to a Biology classroom and coincidentally met the same teacher where a harsh exchange of words occurred resulting in the teacher assaulting the complainant. School authorities are urged to ensure that peace prevails in learning institutions at all times.
