A video of a pre-school teacher mercilessly beating a little girl at school has perhaps, rightly landed the teacher in trouble after the year-old video resurfaced.
A video, reportedly recorded over a year ago in which a kindergarten school teacher was severely beating one of her little students, has resurfaced and landed the teacher in hot waters.
YEN.com.gh sighted the video on Twitter, as it has apparently gone viral outside of its origin of South Africa.
But Face2FaceAfrica.com reports that even in South Africa, it has now caught the attention of many via social media. Media houses have now reportedly picked it up.
The video shows the seemingly upset teacher spanking the girl, probably under 5 years old. The teacher was apparently upset that the little girl had vomited thereby giving the teacher work to do.
The reports available to YEN.com.gh has it that the BBC says the incident happened in Johannesburg.
It has now caught the attention of local child protection service and has led to the arrest of the teacher and her dismissal from the school.
Authorities are also questioning the person who recorded the video for not intervening.
A police spokesperson, Peter Masooa, said the woman appeared in court on March 28, 2019 after a fellow teacher opened a case of assault on the minor against her.
The accused is still in police custody.
