ZRP High challenges High Court decision to reinstate pupil suspended for stealing textbook

Posted by Tayana

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) High School has approached the Supreme Court challenging the High Court’s decision to reinstate a schoolboy suspended on allegations of stealing a textbook titled “The Uncertainty of Hope” and $21 from a fellow pupil.

There was no evidence that the student had stolen the book but ZRP head Mr J.M. Chingonzoh still sent him home even after the book was recovered from another pupil. Justice Owen Tagu nullified Chingonzoh’s two week suspension and criticised the head’s decision to suspend the boy on unproven allegations of theft. Recently the school filed a notice of appeal at the Supreme Court seeking to overturn Justice Tagu’s judgement. The school argues that the High Court made a mistake by failing to acknowledge that the pupil should have approached the school’s administration before the court for an interdict.
