A 48 YEAR OLD teacher at Guinea Fowl High School in Gweru was on Tuesday fined $200 for ill-treating a form two pupil by giving her unbelievable marks among other abuses.

Thandiwe Ncube who teaches English at the school verbally abused the pupil and excluded her from lessons.

The court heard Ncube told the girl that she was going to make life miserable by refusing to supervise her school work.

Magistrate Shotgame Musaiona ordered Ncube to pay $200 fine, in default she would serve two months in prison.

Prosecutors told the court that in January last year the pupil fell ill.

The girl's mother then went to Ncube to explain the situation to her but she (Ncube) failed to understand the complainant's condition and instead started torturing her exposing her to abuse.

"The accused insulted the complainant by uttering the following words, "I will make your life miserable' through various means," the court heard.

"At times she would give her unbelievable marks. The accused also did not mark and capture her results on the first term examinations and this was indicated in her school report."

The court further heard that at times Ncube would withdraw the pupil from class discussions and learning groups and a result since January (2016) the pupil's learning was affected.
