    GUTU - The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education is investigating two student teachers on attachment at Mundondo Primary School in Masvingise Gutu who are alleged to have severely assaulted a form 1 pupil until he dislocated a middle finger and got bruises all over the body.
    The pupil Eddington Makwanye (13) is understood to have been detained at Masvingo General Hospital for 10 days as he got treatment for injuries. The pupil was assaulted for allegedly hiding a watch that belonged to girl who is also doing secondary at the same school. 
    Davison Gavaya and Talent Mugadza who are both student teachers at Masvingo Teachers College have been asked to write reports on the matter to the Ministry. Mundondo Primary and Secondary heads have also both been asked to write reports to their superiors over the case . The matter has also been reported at Masvingo Rural under RRB 3183675.
    The deputy Provincial Education Director Andrew Chikwange (secondary and non-formal education) said he could not comment on the matter because the information was still sketchy.
    "I am not in a position to comment as the information is still sketchy. We are still carrying out investigations internally before we make a public statement," said Chikwange.
    Edington sustained bruises all over the body, had soft tissue injury and has spatula which was removed on September 12 this year, according to the medical documents seen by The Mirror.
    It is alleged that on July 21, 2017 the complainant arrived back at the school from home in Masvingo where he had visited his mother Memory Magundu and found out that one of the girls at the school had allegedly attempted to steal his books.
    In anger he allegedly hide the girl's watch and it was then that the girl whose suspect was Edington reported to the student teachers. It was then that the two student teachers assaulted the complainant to the extent that he missed school for 21 days.
    At that point he then confessed that he had hidden it as retaliation for what Rosemary had done but they would not stop assaulting him and told him to perform a miracle and cause the watch to appear at the scene.news
