Child President accused of torture

PARENTS with children at Chinhoyi High School have accused Child President Tatenda Christian Rusere, an “A” Level student at the school, of subjecting Form 1 students to four hours of corporal punishment during their induction last week.

STAFF REPORTER

The parents, who could not be named, told NewsDay the Form 1 students had been invited for induction between January 3-6 when one of them allegedly verbally abused Rusere, also a head boy at the school.

This allegedly angered Rusere who stormed the students’ hostel and ordered them to kneel for four hours between 9pm-1am.
Rusere became Child President of the Junior Parliament in June last year.

“When we visited our children to see how they were doing at Hanova Hostel, some of them were crying demanding that we take them back home because they had been tortured the previous night by the head boy,” said one of the parents.

“We condemn bad behaviour by our children, but such kind of punishment is very harsh as some pupils might have health problems.”

Another parent who also refused to be named said: “What surprises us is that the head boy is also the President of the Junior Parliament and we wonder what future can be expected from such behaviour.

“He is a student just like others and he should have reported the matter to school authorities and refrained from punishing the pupils harshly.”

However, Rusere denied the allegations yesterday saying the charges had been cooked up to “blackmail” him.

He later referred all questions to the school counsellor John Manyika who also denied the allegations.

“Rusere is not capable of doing such a thing. I cannot defend him, but what I can say is that he is a firm head boy and this might cause other pupils to dislike him and plan to smear his name.

“It is also possible that people raising such allegations are jealous fellow students,” Manyika said, referring further questions to the headmaster only identified as Rambanepasi.

However, Rambanepasi could not be reached for comment as his mobile phone went unanswered.

Although Education, Art, Sports and Culture minister David Coltart could not comment yesterday over the incident as he was attending a meeting, he is on record denouncing corporal punishment in schools.

The Zimbabwe Constitution (1979) as amended in 1990 allows “moderate” corporal punishment “in appropriate circumstances upon a person under the age of 18 years”.

But Article 241 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act and Article 66 of the Education Act (2004) allows corporal punishment only for boys.

      You people are just commenting about a school you don’t know about, nor do you know anything about the school procedures.

      If the parents feel that their child has been abused or to use the preferred NewsDay term., torture, they should immediately report the matter to the school authorities and the police.

      Asking the Minister to comment on a isolated and possibly inconsequential incident is to say the silly trivialising the office of the Minister.

      Those who have been to boarding school will know that it is a life changing experience, teh very first time that a boy or girl lives home . Its possible the so called victim is lying, frightening about being away from mummy and daddy.

      “……. the Form 1 students had been invited for induction between January 3-6 when one of them allegedly verbally abused Rusere, also a head boy at the school. …

      A form one boy , on induction, abuses a senior boy and expects to get away with it? Those of you whose fathers are men, will know that at boarding schools, or even heading cattle, you don’t insult an older boy. You pay somehow.

      • Brian January 13, 2013 at 10:17 am #

        Why should everyone else be punished? We can’t have our children being subjected to such dehumanizing conditions just because of a bad precedence set long back by people heading cattle. Lets put a stop to this bullying without making any justifications. How can form 1′s who hardly know Rusere be jealous of him. These are young lads and such punishment will change them into animals.

    Due to lack of evidence i cannot comment fully since all the people involved are minors. But having served in the Junior Parliament as a minister, and having trained the parliamentarians as a mentor, i condemn all act of abuse to others. i also urge the NEWSDAY people to critically verify all allegations especially with sensitive stuff like this because rushing to publish half truths or even truths has ripple effect implications.

    • wamaromo January 11, 2013 at 9:49 am #

      He is a bully and must be punished if he is the Headboy then he must be dethroned, he should also resign as child president we don’t want bullies anymore. What lack of evidence are talking about? This Manyika guy cannot be a counsellor who think form 1s can scheme against a headboy they have never dealt with. He can’t be a counsellor with such a behaviour he already has shown he is part of the torture of form 1s, the school does not need him.

    • teriyaki January 11, 2013 at 10:45 am #

      I agree, and its is funny that the parents do not mention the school authority response to their children’s abuse. Seems they reported directly to the NEWSDAY. in my opinion it would have made sense for the parents not to behave like the Child President if at all he did what he is accused of and went to report to the school authorities. Failure by school authorities to act then would have prompted to report to the newspapers. And if they had done that they would have mentioned it in the paper to say school authorities also refused to act etc. Abuse of anyone is unacceptable and here is possible abuse of the kid the child president, and further publishing his full name and picture. What does the code of ethics of journalism say about minors in any circumstance??

    This is serious and should be investigated so that if these are false allegations the boy be cleared and if this is true then it should be dealt with in a manner that prevents recurrence.

  4. rach January 11, 2013 at 8:51 am #

    how can new form one students who do not even know him or his character team up aganist him, if you have done wrong admit my dear child president, ask for forgiveness and move on, I too was headgirl at one point and did some things out of pride, I still have my regrets now, I wish people had better things to talk about me and my days as their leader, installing fear is not how to be a great leader, usakare masimba zvakadaro. it just gets you nowhere.

  5. Great Zimbabwe January 11, 2013 at 9:13 am #

    Bullying in schools is a huge problem and authorities should be proactive and investigate promptly any complaints. It is therefore unfortunate for one John Manyika to give a spirited defence without verifying the facts. To be a “firm” headboy does not mean you need to abuse kids. He should have identified those juniors who verbally abused him and with concurrence from his seniors sought appropriate punishment or even a warning since the kids had jut arrived at school. He should have done better because he is an aspirant national leader. Good leaders don’t resort to primitive punishment mechanisms of torture to instill fear in subjects, but strive to earn respect. Act more like a shepherd than a herder.

    The school counsellor John Manyika said “Rusere is not capable of doing such a thing. I cannot defend him, but what I can say is that he is a firm head boy and this might cause other pupils to dislike him and plan to smear his name.” By being firm it means he punished the boys full-stop. As they were showing some desrespect to him and no senior will accept this.Manyunyu , Madzveu, maNew-commer.

    ‘But Article 241 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act and Article 66 of the Education Act (2004) allows corporal punishment only for boys’. Can I ask our good lawyers, is this not discrimination of the highest order?

    I also think this young boy did it, how can form 1 pupils condem you on thier induction period in unison.

    Please, investigate this issue thoroughly, This young man Rusere did that horrible thing to young kids, Take note of the PE Scandal which died a natural death,the Waddilove scandal also died a natural death.
    I think the Headmaster should be answerable for his actions.
    I am of the opinion that the Head must be fired.

  9. wamaromo January 11, 2013 at 9:44 am #

    Bullying of form 1s at schools must be banned and any child found bullying another student must be expelled from school. headmasters must instil such into all students because that primitive behaviour belongs to the dustbin of history. If it was my son.daughter subjected to that I was not only going to deal with this bully but with the parents as well, because sometimes it is us parents who urture bullies.

  14. Former Headboy January 11, 2013 at 10:29 am #

    As i have once conducted orientations for form 1 pupils i have become to understand that a high level of discipline needs to be induced in these form ones as they still would want to believe they are quite the seniors they where at the previous primary schools. Whether the child president did it or not, i stand by you and say that a HIGH LEVEL of discipline is to be installed in those who disrespects authority. And to all those people who wants to put it on Zanu, save your breath please

    • tafamutekwe January 11, 2013 at 11:17 am #

      Mr Former Headboy are you telling us that part of this enforcement of discipline by another pupil,albeit a senior one,includes taking the law into your own hands?

    The parents of the affected boys must take the school to court. In this way, this Manyika fello might change his ways and the headmaster will also do his work and not delegate to Manyika and the head boy Jnr President.

    @ Hozhwa: More than just nonsensical – outright idiotic. The ZANU-PF government has squandered millions of US$ dressing up child soldiers, marching around, parliamentary attendances etc for these so-called child things. I mean if this boy bully is emulating the REAL president, he’s doing well! Dictatorship is contagious. Our new MDC government later this year will rid Zimbabwe country of all these nonsensical things, including the Warren Park Heroes Acre, Unity Day, Defence Forces Day, 21st February thing etc. I’d rather we channel the resources into improving our schools and universities. Izvi zveZaNU-PF of wasting money on egos is primitive, North Korean-type idiocy.

    Its unlikely that form 1s would lie about a thing like that, they are young and scared and will live in fear if the case is poorly handled.further investigation must be done and the school counsellor must not take sides but be neutral until the case is looked into.

    4 hours only? These kids got off lightly I tell you. It clearly shows that they are going to be wimps in life. Initiation in boarding school toughens you up and builds loyalty, respect for seniority and order. When you go to high school you don’t need your mother or father babying you around like has happened here. This is why the school counsellor played it down. Boarding school is home away from home and just as there are rules at home where your elder brother or sister can discipline you if you misbehave so is boarding school with prefects being the elder brothers/sisters.

    This is a storm in a tea cup. In real life the president signs off death warrants and has the power to pardon convicts. This young man has demonstrated the qualities required of a future state president. If these form ones were being disrespectful to the school headboy then they needed even stiffer punishment. Yes, I went to boarding school from primary to secondary school. I experienced initiation and had the chance to initiate juniors too. As long as it’s done in a measured way and not over done. Any parent calling this torture is just molly codling their child and should keep them at home. You cannot always wrap them in cotton wool. Tell them to man up!

    Newsday junos please define some of these terms first,why would kneeling be corporal punishment there;s no physical force from inflictor,its just punishment.[arents lets sometimes give authorities leeway to exercise control without interfering without allowing bullies to rule. if a child cannot take kneeling as punishment they are not fit to be in boarding school.a head at a school l was in msv asked some boys to stand in the shed from 8 to 4pm in june after vapoya weekend another was asked to dig. pupils need discipline even proverbs 23 says so,if you dont tolerate ways of punishment then suggest how you want your misbehaving kidz handled o/w you give hard time to school authorities-beating is what is off but detention is allowed

    The child president should be caned by the police. When children so young leave their parents and endure torture, it is so traumatic that it can leave scars for a lifetime. Shame, inferiority, antisocial behavior. Later on there can even be revenge. I know because I was tortured at …. you guessed it ….. chinoi high school! ZRP come… take him and cane him. This will give a public example to the whole school. If there are any legal problems, there should be a presidential order for the caning. How dare this child soil the presidency! How dare this child using his ‘presidential powers’ to abuse weak, helpless children.

    No they are not, phisically, mentally , socially and in all other biological comparisons. Yes we have accepted Western Values as regards legislation. Thats why women cant compete against man at the olympics. During the world champion 100m sprint, the ‘slowest man still recorded a time better than the woman champion. They are designed for procreation and related phisio/pyschomotor configurated activities which no man can perform. Lets not mix what God separated. Its sad that the age old manhood tradition of initiation has been tarnished by painful extremes, exploited by NGOs who fund child protection programmes, gay and lesbianism. Remember ‘Lord of the Flies’ by William Golding? To equate zvinoitaika during initiation with torture is out of context. Yu want a state institute of torture, go to Guantanamo Bay. Ndiyo example ye TORTURE!!

Are you an investigator or else your child is one or is trainig to be one. So the pupil and their parents who are complainig are liers. What do those small small boys have against the headmaster? Did you say your boy is at the same school ,next is your boy to be abused, say sodomised by Junior President, how do you feel? If you have nothing to say don’t say it.

    Zvekuti vanhu vairohwa kumombe zvakasara kudhara! Torture is torture and is condemned even by the UN, WHAT IS TORTURE?

    Leave the young boy alone. He is not refusing to leave office and he is not plotting with corporals and generals to beat up and torture people into voting for him. To the young boy who insulted a senior imagine what he will fully mature into as an adult with lack of respect like that. And he is a potential leader of tomorrow. Women have it real good. No corporal punishment at school. Points are lowered for them for entry into degree courses at the university. Quotas for women in jobs, business, industry, agriculture … on and on it goes and that’s equal rights. What’s now left is for someone to petition God and ask Him to make men carry babies too for nine months. What a crazy world!

    Watch out for that boy we will breed yet another generation of tyrants. You better check on the boy’s genes he cld be Bob’s bastard child. His behaviour is replica to Bob’s when was young. It is said Bob was so cruel even to animals, he could starve his mother’s cattle to death by driving them to barren pastures. Times change my fellow countrymen, drift with the winds change, let go your grasp on stone age barbaric behaviour of ‘Manyunyu’. What legacy are we to leave for our children to emulate? See what kind of men this barbarism intiation thing had created, the kind of men that create torture camps like Border Gezi, Guyu etc (the North Korean style). Where our kids are taught to go hard against their fellow countrymen. Perpetrators of Gukurahundi, Murambatsvina, June 27 they are men nd women of this generation of Manyunyu intiators. They started long ago at boarding schools and pastures spilling blood on a small scale. Mbavha inotanga nekuba dovi ramai mumba gume yava mbavha yemota. Lets curb this behaviour now befor it manifests its ugly beast head into the next generation.

    The next thing we are going to hear from schools is murder and rape. Thruogh your encouragement I don’t think it will surprise you @ m.chiyangwa. By the look of things you are used to it, you are a Border Gezi graduate and did your passout intiation during June 27 run up, beat up and raping MDC Activists.

    wow, when u saw the headline i thought i was going to read about dungeons and dragons, Chuck Norris type of story…. honestly this story isn’t newspaper worthy… keep your babies at home please cause honestly everyone who’s been to boarding knows they don’t raise wimps.. labelling isn’t corporal punishment…. shuwa watuka headboy ! parents your kids are ill mannered, your kids probably disrespect you too. I’m not saying they should be abused but seriously folks this isn’t America where rights are more respected than human life and God himself!
