Government has deployed a psychologist to provide counselling services to science teachers at Mandwandwe High School in Bulawayo.
The teachers are reportedly refusing to use the school’s science laboratory, claiming it is haunted. The laboratory was abandoned in March 2016 after a science teacher, Trust Dube, died after allegedly inhaling poisonous fumes inside the facility. Primary and Secondary Education minister Paul Mavima told Parliament a fortnight ago that government conducted a detoxification exercise to make the laboratory usable. He said the committee recommended that the laboratory was ready for use, but the science teachers at the school were still unwilling to use it. Said Mavima:
However, what remains now is general fear from the science teachers at the school and we have already deployed our principal director in charge of physiological services at the ministry to work on the issue.
