Harriet MatovuAs a parent this is so painful to watch!! Hope this so called teacher is apprehended
Coletta WanjohiThey say his school is near the police station. Committing crime right under the nose of police.
Camila WangoiHe is disgracing the teaching profession….even if it’s a parent, then this is still uncalled for, there are better ways to punish a child n not cause such trauma to the rest and to the kid in particular…. Akamatwe
Helen K AliThe school is called Marto nursery school in kamwokya according to some other sources we can start from there
Helen K AliEven the woman watching should be taken so next time others should save children from abuse
Tajuba PaulEeeh, horrible
Kulubya Samuel HenryMr.Masembe that skul is along mawanda road just below the mawanda road police station!
Shamim Asiimwe ByenkyaIts time we took a stand to end violence against children. Imagine the kind of psychological torture he will undergo following this inhumane treatment. Next you’ll see the same teacher making comments like “pull up your socks” or that “he does not play well with others!’
