Kampala - Parents and teachers of Bulyanku primary school in eastern Uganda are shocked about an incident in which a primary school (class 7) pupil raped his female teacher.
According to Robert Balitwawula, a local leader in Bulyanku village, the 17 year old boy Samson Waibale allegedly raped the female teacher called Masitula Nabwire Wednesday night as she was returning home from buying paraffin in the nearby trading centre.
''The teacher reported to us that the boy raped her while on her way home. She said she feared raising alarm because Waibale threatened to strangle her if she made any noise,'' said Balitwawula.
He added that the boy is the oldest in the school and has been repeating several classes because he is not serious with his studies.
''We had advised the headteacher to expel the boy from the school because he has outgrown it but he has not listened to our advice,'' he said.
He added that matter has been handed over to police.
The teacher has been taken to hospital for medical checkups as police hunt for Waibale who is on the run.
