A biology teacher has been punished after he was caught in the act having sex with a female student inside the laboratory.
A Zambian school teacher who teaches biology at the St Therese Girls Secondary School, Kasama, has been caught having sex with a grade 11 pupil.
The teacher has been suspended while the Pupil has been expelled
According to Mano News, the District Education Board Secretary Christopher Sinkamba disclosed this in an interview following an outcry by members of the public.
Sinkamba says the embattled teacher identified as Raphael Mwape is on suspension awaiting disciplinary charges.
He adds that the school administration initially reported the matter to police for defilement but that the police could not proceed with investigations as the girl turned up to be over 16 years old.
And when queried why the pupil was expelled when sources said the teacher was still teaching, Sinkamba says the girl was given a forced transfer clarifying that the pupil was found wanting by the school rules.
