Four teachers in Mkushi have been suspended for having a s*x party with pupils believed to be minors.
The District Education authority in Mkushi suspended the four teachers for having the s*x party with female pupils from Mkushi Boarding Secondary School.
Mkushi District Commissioner Luka Mwamba confirmed the suspensions in an interview and revealed that the culprits would be transferred to other schools.
Mr. Mwamba said of the four teachers, one was from Chalata Boarding Secondary School while the remaining three are from Mkushi Boarding Secondary school. Mr Mwamba added that the suspensions are with immediate effect.
“ I am confirming that one teacher from Chalata Boarding Secondary School and three others from Mkushi Boarding Secondary School have been suspended for having a `feast’ with female pupils. The disciplinary committee has recommended that all the offenders be transferred outside Mkushi to lower schools,” Mr. Mwamba said.
Mr. Mwamba said the punishment has been reduced through mitigation because the suspended teachers are first offenders and showed remorse for their immoral act.
Mr. Mwamba has since thanked the District Education authority for their bold decision and warned would-be offenders to take a leaf and if not will face the wrath of the law.
The teachers are believed to have taken the pupils to Chalata for a drinking spree and s*x party called “a feast.” Five pupils are believed to have been involved.
The matter was initially exposed by a former girlfriend to one of the teachers who posted the incident on social media.
