A TEACHER in a Zimbabwe elementary school has been suspended for giving unruly pupils a choice between being caned or suckling her breasts.

Apparently, 14 of the teacher's third-graders chose the latter, the Zimbabwe Herald reported Tuesday.

After the incidents came to light, the teacher was suspended and many of the parents came to the school and filed police complaints, the newspaper said.

Harare Provincial Education Director Tomax Doba confirmed the report and told the Herald criminal charges are pending against the educator.

"We received a report from the school and the report says it happened," he said. "We have already advised them to make a police report and the teacher is likely to face child abuse charges."

One student told his parents he was given the choice between 100 lashes with a cane or suckling his teachers' breasts for talking during class.
