  1. Teachers are tempted bcz of the dress code. Advice the children / pupils and teachers to dress well for it will help to reduce the number of difilement cases in our country Zambia

  2. I am sure there will soon be donor funding to help male teachers behave themselves… it is as if we are an infantile nation that cannot just do things without a bidding. Listen – how is it that suddenly people who walked about with only a loin cloth are now naked under a mini skirt!? Muletontonkanya limo! You want to do what to the small girls kanshi!? Mwe fipuba mwe!

  3. I thought regulations are clear concerning male teacher-female pupil sexual affairs? Are they not dismissed when found guilty of such offences?

  4. The schoolgirls of Zambia will change the world. But they will find it much easier if they are allowed to finish school! C’mon bros!
