Tanzanian education minister orders arrest of teachers caught on video assaulting student
Tanzanian Education Minister, Mr Mwigulu Nchemba, has ordered the police to arrest several teachers who were caught on video raining blows and kicks on a hapless student.
This after the video was shared online and went viral sparking public outrage on social media.
In the clip, posted on Wednesday on Twitter and shared several times, about six teachers are seen throwing a male student on the ground then holding his hands and legs as they kick and punch him on the face.
Two other teachers are seen whipping the boy with sticks inside what looks like a teacher’s staff room.
While all this is happening, two female voices are heard in the background begging the male teachers to stop clobbering the student. The clips ends as the student collapses on the floor.
