News circulating online reveals how a headteacher in Tanzania made it during to openly discipline by caning his student together with a fake parent he brought to represent him at the school.
In the footage available to us from Nairobi News, the headteacher is spotted making an address at the school assembly. Among those present is the indisciplined student with the fake parent, a man.
As stated by the headteacher, he sent the student to bring his parent so they could together discuss the student’s challenges. Meanwhile, the said student supposedly went and brought someone from the streets and brought him to the school as his parent. Translated from Swahili, the headteacher says:
“This student has challenges which we need to solve with the help of his parent. But the student takes us for fools and decides to bring us this man, telling us he is his mother’s husband.” He condemned the act stating that the man could be imprisoned for up to six years for impersonation.
However, he disclosed that he was not going to involve the police but was rather going to handle the issue himself by giving him some six strokes of the cane. To this, he indicated should be a great lesson to stubborn students who might think of taking the same path.
The rest of the students and teachers burst into laughter. He then went ahead to ask the fake parent (casually dressed) to lie down. The man obeyed and was flogged six times.
