A primary school teacher in Bugweri district identified as Joshua Kapere is demanding millions from a parent as compensation for assaulting and embarrassing him before his pupils.

He is a teacher at Idhinda primary school in Namalemba sub-county and he says that he was attacked by a parent identified as Patrice Tibiita Friday last week.

The parent identified as Tibita is reportedly to have stormed the school premises that day and slapped Kapere for flogging his child two hard canes. It is alleged that the child (names withheld) flopped in English homework, hence the canes.

Kapere who has since filed a police report claims an hour after reprimanding the child, Tibita showed up and slapped him in the face several times before dragging him outside to the school compound. The macho man also punched him on the chest and back, something that caused him to be embarrassed in school and outside.

“Tibiita held me by the neck, and slapped my face unsparingly, before forcing me out of the classroom under the watch of crowds, an issue, which has caused me disrespect and gross humiliation in this community,” he said.
