Teacher Beaten

Teacher battles for life after being assaulted by former student. NewsDay reports that Elliot Magaya (18) a former student at Masasa Secondary School in Chikomba assaulted his former teacher, Bernard Nyika, in a bid to avenge the beatings he got during his school days.

A hapless 48-year-old Chivhu teacher was hospitalised after he was allegedly struck on the head with an iron bar by a former student who had been nursing a grudge against him.

The incident is reported to have occurred on September 29 at around 7 pm at Bonda Bottle Store where Nyika and Magaya were drinking beer with other patrons. Magaya who was spoiling for a fight provoked one of Nyika’s colleagues, saying that he wanted to revenge the canning he experienced whilst at school.

This prompted Nyika to intervene so as to stop the quarrelling, but the suspect then turned on him. After realising that the suspect was now attacking him, Nyika fled the scene with Magaya in hot pursuit.

The suspect, armed with an iron bar, struck Nyika on the head and he fell down with blood gushing out. The matter was reported at ZRP Masasa who attended the scene and arrested the suspect. Nyika was then rushed to Sadza Hospital, where he was admitted before being transferred to Harare for further medical assistance.

Mashonaland East provincial police spokesperson Inspector Tendai Mwanza confirmed the incident, saying despite the brutal attack, Nyika was now in a stable condition.

“We are against all forms of violence and those who are caught perpetrating it will be arrested and charged accordingly. The complainant, a teacher in Chivhu, is currently in a stable condition while the suspect is in remand facing attempted murder charges,” he said.
