A predatory Christ Ministries High School teacher’s alleged affair with one of his students was recently exposed after compromising photographs together leaked on social media. In leaked photographs, the chemistry teacher passionately kisses and caresses the girl (name withheld). iHarare has, however, identified the sex predator as Tsumbirani Mabanga.

This publication has also noted that earlier reports circulating on social media had alleged that Mabanga had committed statutory rape following reports that the girl was a minor. Information reaching iHarare has revealed that the girl is, in fact, 18-years-old.

Leaked photographs expose student-teacher love affair

Contacted for comment Mabanga confirmed having an affair with the girl but claimed that the relationship only started after she had left the school.

It’s true I am dating the girl, but the girl is above 18 not 15 as it is said by some of you guys.
I didn’t date the girl at school, but after she was done with school.
As for leaked pictures where we were each other, I don’t know who leaked them and I don’t know what their motive was.
If I had a case to answer, the police would have arrested me by the time the issue came to light.

Mabanga has since been fired from his teaching post at Christ Ministries for alleged misconduct after his affair with the student was exposed.

The school’s headmaster Shelton Kaungwa confirmed Mabanga’s dismissal.

The child was in Upper Six, but according to our code of conduct, it’s not allowed, it’s a dismissable offence, that is why we fired him.
To us, it was a gross violation of the ethics of a teacher, although messages circulating on social media suggest that no action was taken.

It might not be a law according to the law of the country because of age, but to the school, it’s a serious offence, and a dismiSsable one.
