Headmaster hospitalised after being beaten by new teacher


Gokwe recorded a sad story on Friday after a renowned head teacher at a named secondary school in Gokwe was in the early hours of today brutally beaten by a new teacher after a spat which started as a joke.

According to information available, a man identified as Jackson Siwale, 33, a new teacher, and Makama Kennedy, 52, head teacher at the school in question fought amidst the morning briefing.

The turn out of teachers was so poor, the matter that propelled the head teacher to call for a short briefing specifically to urge teachers to take work seriously.

The briefing was unfolding well and considering the fact that few teachers were at school, the diplomats found it very convenient and aired their grievances to the head teacher.

Mostly, they were asking for stationery as they prepare for mock exams.

The head teacher looked unconcerned and advised them to prepare tests which they shall manage to write on the board as the school has no money.

This was when Mr. Siwale, who once taught at a Convent School and later joined a new college as lecturer until he was deployed last year said the school needed to be serious.

“You cannot joke with exams, that is why learners fail terribly here,” he added.

The head teacher just looked at him and said, “The joke is your suit. You do not know your size? Just keep quiet and wait for your confirmation.”

The teachers in the meeting turned to look at Mr. Siwale, for sure, the jacket and trousers were modified to fit the tiny body. The shoes appeared to be oversize too. No one could hold the laughter. Everyone laughed irritably including the head teacher.

It was a cold wind that stopped the laughter.

The head teacher was on the floor. Mr. Siwale, who is believed to be a martial art instructor, span on the table and gifted the head teacher the legendary kick.

Teachers rose and reached for the head teacher.

But the angry Siwale did not let anyone stand in the way.

He grabbed one teacher, headbutted him and gave another two punches until they left the head teacher alone.

The head teacher was then on his feet but the matter was reported to the police.
