Police in Limbe have arrested a 47 year old primary school teacher on suspicion that her defiled three primary school standard eight learners.
Deputy police publicist for Limbe Zembeneko identified the teacher as Harris Thokozani of Chisomezi Primary School in Bangwe.
Zembeneko said Thokozani has since been charged with defilement and abuse of office among others.
The police publicist said one of the girls told the police that she slept with the teacher six times on six occasions whilst the other two claimed they were defiled once each.
Zembeneko said the issue came to light when the three girls were chatting and discovered that the teacher had slept with them all, an issue that caused them to be angry and reported the matter to the headteacher who sent the girls for medical examination.
However the headteacher was refusing to diclose results of the medical examination and seemed not to take action against the teacher, prompting the girls to tell their parents who immediately reported the matter to police.
Thokozani is still in police custody pending his appearance in court.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
