Teachers Union of Malawi (TUM) has warned teachers against sexually abusing their pupils or students saying they are destroying the lives of girls hence the union will not support them.

TUM general secretary Denis Kalekeni was speaking on Wednesday, a day after the world commemorated the International Day of the Girl Child which falls on 11 October.

Over the past months, the media carried several news reports about teachers who raped their students.

Kalekeni said their union has also been receiving numerous reports of male teachers who sexually abused learners or impregnated them.

He claimed that TUM does not condone such acts since the malpractices undermines the strides the union has made.

“We receive more cases of a teacher impregnating a pupil and as TUM we condemn such malpractices,” he said. “Such malpractices are affecting the lives of most girls since they fail to continue with their education.”

According to Kalekeni, the union introduced a policy whereby teachers who rape or impregnate learners do not receive any support from TUM when answering their charges in court.

Kwa anzathu amene mumabwera ku Joni kuno mukhoza kundivomereza za uniform ya atsikana kuno amangoyenda maliseche.Wt iz needed iz just get used to it and never think about it.Here no matter whether you agreed with the girl or the parents that u will marry her, as far as u r doing it with a teen ager, u r raping and will be arrested.

  2.

  8. Teaching is a regrettable job in Malawi as their concerns are not worth and land in the deaf ears of the stakeholders but when the grain of them misbehaves the whole bunch is mocked at, is always asked to work on obligation rather than commitment. Children are mishandled by the nation in general but teachers are just your examples.Tum put your house in order first before you look at your teachers. I guess Tum is one of sick trade union without direction. God bless our teachers as I am able to read this.

  27. Fuck you all the teachers especially male teachers mukuwonjeza.

  28. A teacher is a first hand professional of every child that stays longer in life with. This increases affection between these two parties (child vs teacher). Their bond becomes so inseparable. This bond coupled with poedophiliac syndrome make these two parties owing each others sexual debt, through curiosity by sensuality (body physical closeness/contact) element before intimacy (emotional) develops! However, for responsible teachers it is compelling to hold their zips regardless of how conditions allow them to syringe the juvenile ‘between legs fresh cake’. We have witnessed teachers marrying their students upon graduating from their primary school! To this effect it means teachers are not only to blame but also the pupils and guardians. Social beings and sexual beings eish difficult to handle neh!
