By Own Correspondent| The police have cleared a planned demonstration by parents against Highlands Primary School head whom they accused abusing school funds and running the school down, ZimEye can exclusively report.

According to one of the parents who spoke on condition of anonymity, the school is in a mess and now a health hazard due to neglect.

“Electricity was cut off over non-payment, no water in toilets, children in boarding do not have adequate food, grass at the school has not been cut since the beginning of the rains, the school is in total mess and now a health hazard to pupils,” said the parent.

The parent added that the head was confronted by parents in the last meeting but remained quite.

“This is on top of a damning audit report which revealed that the head had abused school funds,” added the parent.

Parents have since rejected a fees review until there is clarity on administration of money, further crippling the school considering inflationary pressures.
