A Njube High School teacher who allegedly influenced pupils to march against an increase in school fees and teachers’ “poor remuneration” on Monday last week is still at large.
We have not arrested the teacher and investigations to locate him are still ongoing.
Mutsiba is reported to have inspired 153 pupils to march from their school located in Njube suburb, Bulawayo, in protest against the increase in school fees from $92 to $440 per term.
The group of pupils removed the national flag from the mast and waved it as they marched from the school premises to Siyephambili Drive before heading towards the city using Luveve Road.
They abandoned the march near Entumbane Complex after their headmaster ordered them to return to school.
Mutsiba faces charges of participating in a public gathering with intent to promote public violence, breach of peace, or bigotry and insulting the flag.
