whose pupils go to Mushandike High School have given the school head Rosewita
Mudarikwa a two weeks ultimatum to leave the school accusing her of gross maladministration.
The School Development Committee (SDC) on behalf of the parents
has since written a letter to the school authorities with a number of complaints
demanding that they remove her from the school before they take the matter into
their own hands.
The SDC and other stakeholders who included the local councilor
had a meeting with the school head on Wednesday April 23, 2021 where they
demanded that she leaves the school.
Ward 7 councilor Bennegina Mudambiramwa confirmed having met
with the SDC saying she managed to convince them that they should engage the
education authorities first.
“We met at the school and the parents were really angry that
they wanted the head to leave the school as a matter of urgency but we managed
to talk and we agreed that they should put their concerns into writing and
present them to the District Schools Inspector (DSI).
“I went to see the DSI at his offices with the petition but
he was not there and I will present the matter and the letter when he gets to
his office,” said Mudambiramwa.
The parents were complaining that the head was working alone
without the SDC in almost everything that was done at school.
Mushandike Hish School SDC secretary John Magodora said that
the head was not acting in the best interest of the parents and the pupils
saying since she came to the school there has been no meaningful developments
and pass rate dropped.
“The head is making the school a one man band, when she is
not around even the deputy head cannot decide on anything, the deputy has to
wait for her. The deputy head cannot even welcome visitors when she is not
“There has been no meaningful development that has ever
happened at the school since she came in 2005,” said Magodora.
