The students who comprised of both male and female were allegedly caught pants down in the girls’ dormitories of the Silobela based school while preparing for the June-July exams.
Midlands Provincial Education Director, Mr Jameson Machimbira who made the announcement said;
I received phone calls from some affected parents who wanted the Ministry (Primary and Secondary Education) to intervene citing the timing of the suspensions. So, we sent a team to investigate the matter on Friday and they are still to give me a report. So, I am waiting for the report.”
One of the parents of the suspended students told the state media;
“My son is currently doing Form Four, and is going to write his final examinations in December as advised by the Government. We were notified by the boarding master that they wanted us as parents at the school on October 13. Before I knew it, I was advised to come and collect my child since they had expelled them from school because they were allegedly having sexual affairs.”
