Zambian father summoned by police for abusing son over failing exams

A father has been summoned by the Zambian police over a viral video which showed him beating his son for his poor performance in school exams.

The man who claims to have paid $21,000 as tuition fees in the American International School of Lusaka, Zambia, said his son failed to sit for Math and English but scored A in music while other courses were failed.

”I told you this is a scar on your entire life, do you know the reputation this gives you? You can’t read? You are a big boy you can’t read?’ The father said.

Who probably recorded the video could be heard telling the man not to beat the boy. He replied saying: ”How can you say I should stop beating him, you know what this means..”

He continued slapping the boy and saying ”You can’t read, don’t talk to me again’ That’s the result you bring to this house? Look at the result you brought? You idiot!

The police have now opened an investigation into the matter after the video went viral.
