MHUBHE TEACHERS IN STATE OF FEAR

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

NGULWINI – While lessons may have resumed at Mhubhe High School, teachers are conducting them in fear. 


Some of the teachers at the school claimed that following the mayhem which occurred a couple of weeks ago, they felt intimidated by the pupils and as such, feared for their lives. 
Information gathered from a reliable source was that the teachers feared for their lives to an extent that they dreaded chastising the pupils for any misconduct they could commit.


Tense


He mentioned that the situation at the school was tense because while they were conducting lessons, the pupils would from time to time make funny comments that made teaching difficult for them.
“Some pupils have the impression that they are now heroes after contributing to the recent riot that ensued at the school,” said the source.


The teachers are also afraid that the open day scheduled for next month at the school will not be a success because there is division between the pupils, parents and teachers. 
Mhubhe High School hogged the headlines from the day schools resumed for their second term calendar.


On Tuesday, May 7, 2019, which was the first day of business, the school was littered with pamphlets inscribed with a variety of sexual misconduct allegations against one of the teachers. The allegations insinuated that the said male teacher was having sexual relations with some of the female learners.
On the following day (Wednesday), business kicked off on a negative footing as pupils ignored the morning assembly bell.


Instead, a riot ensued, which led to some classes having their window panes broken while the administration block was partially burnt and its furniture broken.
Also, the office of the bursar was broken into and had its contents turned upside down; just like it was with the office of the deputy head teacher.


The teachers also alleged that they were robbed of their valuable items including handbags and money while their motor vehicles were also not spared as they were vandalised during the riot. 
Following the riot, which resulted in the indefinite closure of the school, the police sought pupils suspected to be the ringleaders of the mayhem. Consequently, a day after the incident, they (police) had rounded up and detained four learners accused of being in the forefront.
