A Marondera Primary School teacher (48) who allegedly trapped a grade 6 pupil in a storeroom before fondling her breasts appeared in court facing offensive assault charges.
The teacher denied the charges and magistrate Arnold Maburo postponed the matter to the 11th of February for continuation.
According to the court papers, sometimes in September last year at around 4pm the accused called the complainant to his classroom and ordered her to pack his bread in a plastic bag kept in the storeroom. It is alleged that the teacher told the complainant that she had wrongfully packed the bread and ordered her to repack it and that’s when the teacher followed the young girl and fondled her breasts.
The complainant later told her friends about what had happened before telling her parents who then accompanied her to the police to file a report.
