A schoolteacher has been suspended in Zimbabwe for allegedly giving pupils the choice of being caned or suckling her breasts.

The woman faces a disciplinary hearing after one of the pupils reported the ‘punishment’ to his parents, reports the Herald.

The boy claimed he was asked to choose between suckling the teacher’s breasts or receiving 100 strokes of the cane for being noisy.

The boy chose to suckle the teacher’s breasts, as did 14 others, according to the newspaper.

The headmaster of the Harare school summoned the teacher to respond to the allegations.

The teacher allegedly admitted forcing the children to suckle her breasts but could not give reasons why she had done so.
