The Media Network on Child Rights and Development is saddened with reports that some male members of staff at Kasama Girls Secondary School are sexually abusing pupils.
And organisation Executive Director Henry Kabwe has urged the Ministry of General Education to roll out the sexuality education in the school carriculum in order to encourage pupils to openly discuss this topic with their teachers and parents.
Mr Kabwe has noted with concern that a lot of school girls are being sexually abused due to the secrecy surrounding this topic.
He has since urged the ministry of education to ensure that all members of staff that will be found wanting after investigations are brought to book.
And the Ministry of Education says they have launched investigations following allegations that some male members of staff at Kasama Girls are sexually abusing pupils.
Ministry of Education spokesperson Hilary Chipango said the ministry has received the concern and have instituted investigations into the matter.
