Out of Africa: Grade 8 pupils abused in hazing rituals


THE Ministry of Education has put an immediate stop to school outings and overnight camping trips arranged at State secondary schools to prevent hazing under the pretext of orientation for newly enrolled Grade 8 pupils.

Education Permanent Secretary Vitalis Ankama said his ministry had received numerous complaints from parents whose children had to wear refuse bags, nametags with words like “cockroach” and other derogatory descriptions written on them and had water poured on them.
