Mwenezi teacher manhandles school head for refusing to sign leave forms



Cephas Shava

MWENEZI- Jacob Mugwira, a
teacher at Choverere Primary School manhandled his school headmaster, Boy
Chikwavava, by his waist belt after he allegedly refused to sign his leave
forms.
The
case was heard at the Mwenezi Magistrate Court last week where Mugwira was
facing disorderly conduct charges.
Mugwira,
who pleaded not guilty to the charges, was acquitted at the close of State case
after the school head’s side of the story differed with the version of two other
State witnesses.
In
acquitting Mugwira, magistrate Honest Musiiwa expressed dissatisfaction over
the case, which he said was not worthy the court’s time, insisting that both
the accused and the complainant’s conduct resembles child’s play.
Argued
by prosecutor Willard Chasi, the State case was that on March 06 last year at
around 07:20 hrs, the two had a misunderstanding while at work.
During
the squabble, Mugwira held Chikwavava by the belt and tie while pushing him
around.
The
court further heard that Chikwavava managed to flee but Mugwira chased after
him threatening to kill him.
Chikwavava
locked himself in his house and Mugwira, armed with a spear and machete, broke
the door down and the two tussled.
Chikwavava
managed to escape and went straight to file a police report leading to
Mugwira’s arrest.
In
his defence, Mugwira lashed out at Chikwavava saying he exaggerated the whole
incident saying they only had a small misunderstanding which never turned
violent.
“The
truth of the matter is that he is exaggerating. The headmaster is just abusing
his powers at the school. He does not want to see me there and at one point in
time he attempted to have me fired,” argued Mugwira.
