A shocking video of a teacher spanking his kids has drawn heated responses.
Several have demanded immediate arrest of the teacher due to what they see to be mistreatment and harsh treatment. These defenseless students are shown in the video lying on the ground while they alternately received lashings.
These children yelled in agony and misery as the teacher struck their butts with what appeared to be a rope.
In light of this, many feel that corporal punishment must be prohibited in the majority of African schools since it violates fundamental human rights and fair treatment.
Many believe he should be arrested as a deterrent to other teachers who, in the name of discipline, subject students to ill-treatment and physical abuse.

Meanwhile, many believe such level of discipline must be restored to all schools so to curb the high spate of reckless behaviour by students.
