CHIREDZI – The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education is worried by the action taken by parents at Chibwedziva Secondary School in Chiredzi South who forcibly removed the school head from his house before locking it and chasing him away.
The incident happened last week.
The parents are bitter that the Ministry has been taking long to take action against Simbarashe Jackson Zenda who they accuse of embezzling funds.
Efforts to get comment from Zenda were fruitless as his mobile phone was unreachable.
Chiredzi District Schools' Inspector Petronella Nyangwe said she had informed the School Development Committee (SDC) that what was done by parents to chase away Zenda from the school was not lawful.
She said she was aware that there was a case of alleged fraud that had been preferred against Zenda and urged the parents to respect procedure and allow the law to take its course.
She said the matter had been referred to the Provincial Education office for guidance.
"I can confirm that parents at Chibwedziva chased away the head by forcefully moving him from his house and locking the doors. We called the SDC to our office and advised them that the action taken by parents is not lawful and they should allow him to continue with his work. We know there are some issues surrounding him but the matter is being dealt with by responsible authorities.
We use set down regulations to deal with the situation. Parents should not act outside the law" said Nyangwe.
SDC treasurer Pastor Chisase said the head was chased away following a resolution made at the Annual General Meeting two weeks ago.
The head is accused of misappropriating funds amounting to $6000.
