    KZN: Teacher accused of pulling out gun to scare pupils

    A teacher at a school in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, has been accused of carrying a gun and often pointing it at learners. According to the isiZulu news outlet Isolezwe, the woman, who teaches at Phambili Secondary School in Rossburgh, uses the weapon to actually scare her pupils.

    The parents of pupils from the school have been calling for the school to take action against the teacher and address her bullying tactics. The educator reportedly also points the gun at fellow teachers at the school.

    The publication reports that parents were so fed up with the teacher that this past Monday, they stormed her classroom and confronted her about allegedly bringing a gun to the KZN school.

    The parents apparently knocked on her door, with the plan to physically get her off school premises, but she was a no show.

    Isolezwe spoke to a parent on the condition of anonymity, who expressed their frustration at the situation, saying the educator was constantly accused of wrongdoing, but that the school is yet to take firm action.

    “We are tried of this teacher, we are now tired of having a teacher with a gun at school. Furthermore, have you ever heard of students being silenced by gunfire? We just stand by what we say, we want the teacher to leave and not tomorrow, not,” the parent said to the news outlet.

    The chairperson of the school governing body, Surprise Makhethwa, also said she needed to leave.

    “We will not have a teacher who does anything on the school grounds as we have our children who we have brought here who we want to see have a bright future,” he is quoted as having told the publication.

    The KZN education department has condemned the incident, saying educators are not allowed to bring weapons to school, let alone a gun. The department intends heading to the school to engage the principal and establish whether any action has been taken against the educator.
