The KZN Corporal Punishment Video That Has Parents Up In Arms

There’s corporal punishment, and then there’s corporal punishment which is more along the lines of abuse.

Either way, it’s illegal – but that didn’t stop a KZN teacher from beating two girls with a cane stick while pushing and shoving them around.

Now, the KZN department of education is planning “harsh action” against the teacher, reports Times LIVE:

KZN education department’s Kwazi Mthethwa confirmed that shortly after the video circulated they were able to identify the teacher from Umdlamfe Secondary School in Esikhawini‚ Richards Bay.

“We will be taking harsh action against the perpetrator. We want to send a clear message that corporal punishment will not be tolerated in our schools and learning facilities.”

He said a district official had visited the school.

Barely three weeks have passed since the department condemned the use of corporal punishment in response to a 17-second video showing a pupil being hit on his hand by “what looks like a teacher in a classroom”:

“Despite it being banned since 1997‚ some teachers in South African schools continue to dish out corporal punishment‚ often for everyday offences‚” it said in a statement.

Take a look at the situation they have on their hands now:

That’s just not on.
