St Anne’s Goto High School Chaplain In Child Abuse Storm
In a disturbing report, a St Anne’s Goto High School Chaplain is being accused of allegedly entering girls’ hostels and ordering them to take off their skirts so that he sees if they are wearing skin tights.
Parents of the schoolgirls have since petitioned the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education to take action following the reports.
A local publication reports that the man in the eye of the storm is school chaplain Clinton Nyakamha.
Contacted for comment on the issue and other allegations against the school, the headmaster, Kudzai Mutseyekwa said he was driving and could not comment.
Mutseyekwa then released a stamped letter stating they were investigating the issue.
The letter reads:
“As the Head of St Anne’s Goto High School, I regret the negative report that broke the school’s various WhatsApp platforms over the weekend relating to allegations of abuse of female students by the School Chaplin.
“I am pleased to inform you that senior teachers, led by the Deputy Head, are conducting some investigations so that we can establish what exactly transpired.
“Once the investigations have been finalised, the reports will be shared with you as the parents, the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education and the police.
Thank you for your usual cooperation.”

BBC reports that Wilfred Mpofu, 32, of Tenby Drive, Luton, misrepresented that he had stage four pancreatic cancer and needed the money for an operation at a private hospital in Switzerland.
This led Mpofu’s fiancée and friend to set up fundraising pages for him.
He was jailed for two years and eight months at Luton Crown Court after admitting five counts of fraud.
