MINISTER for Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology David Arore has denied allegations of abuse against a headmaster.
Arore said he had approached the headmaster at Embogo High School in Northern province last week as a procedure required in addressing matters involving staff at his school.
He said as a state leader he was accompanied by the police to the school where he approached the headmaster.
He denied assaulting the headmaster.
Arore said he returned to the school the next day to apologise.
He said the concerned teacher was going around collecting affidavit of persons for the Court of Disputed Returns to level against him.
Arore made a call against such behaviour. He reacted to concerns by parents of students attending Embogo High School.
Parents of students at the school demanded an apology and explanation into his alleged behaviour.
“If the minister had an issue then he must use the proper channels available,” they said.
“We condemn his actions in the strongest terms possible and demand that he apologises to the parents of Embogo High School.”
