Male Teacher Nabbed For Touching Girls Breasts AND Buttocks

A Rusape teacher Revai Kaswa has been arrested for five counts of aggravated indecent assault and another five of indecent assault.


He had a habit of fondling girls breasts, buttocks and inserting his fingers in the genitals of the complainants on different occasions

The arrest of Kaswa, who was redeployed to Nechironga Primary School following his readmission into the profession in 2009, has sent tongues wagging as teachers and pupils at the school claimed that the magnitude of abuse was underreported as previous cases were swept under the carpet.

Manicaland police deputy spokesman Assistant Inspector Luxon Chanada confirmed Kaswa's arrest for the alleged offences perpetrated from October 1 to October 23, 2015.

Asst Insp Chananda said police were keen to dig deeper into the unfolding child abuse saga and appealed to schoolgirls and members of the public with information on the goings on at the school to report. "Investigations are in progress and most importantly we want to appeal to other girls at the school who could have been abused to lodge complaints with police. We want all girls in abusive situations to report such cases.

"As we speak, he has been charged with 10 criminal counts, five being charges of aggravated indecent assault in which he touched and inserted his fingers in the genitals of the complainants on different occasions.
"Kaswa has also been charged with five more counts of indecent assault. He was accused by the complainants, who are all Grade 5, of fondling their breasts and buttocks," said Asst Insp Chananda.

"The offences were committed from October 1 to October 23, 2015. Kaswa would instruct each complainant to stay behind in the class after dismissing other pupils.

"He would threaten the complainants with unspecified, but that could not deter some of the abused girls reported their ordeal to one female teacher who tabled that matter before other female teachers out of which a decision was taken to report the matter to Rusape police," said Mr Chananda.
