Two prefects at Mabasa Government Secondary School in Zvishavane will soon appear in court after they allegedly fought over a boyfriend.
The girls who cannot be named are in Form 3 and Form 4 respectively. The Form 3 pupil allegedly accused the Form 4 pupil of snatching her boyfriend who is doing Form 5 at a neighbouring school.
The girls are both children of businessmen at Mabasa Shopping Centre.
Sources said the boy who goes to Chachitsa High School is considered the most handsome in the area.
Kumbirai Mpesi, the head at Mabasa School confirmed the incident to The Mirror and said that the pupils had a misunderstanding over a man. She said she didn’t expect such behaviour from school prefects.
The girls are said to have fought at Mabasa Shopping Centre after the Form 3 girl sent her goons to beat up the Form 4 girl. The fight only ended when people stopped them from fighting.
The head said she was going to take corrective measures on anyone involved in such business.
The Form 4 pupil said that she also fought her Form 3 rival in her father’s shop after she was accused of stealing $350 from the shop. The case will be heard at Zvishavane Magistrate Court.
The Form 4 pupil wrote 2 ‘O’ Level subjects in June; Science and Commerce and got As in both subjects. She is considered a brilliant child at Mabasa Secondary.
