The Child Protection Unit of the Zambian Police Force has summoned George Bester, the father who was slapped his son for having bad grades in the viral video over child abuse concerns.
The presumably 2018 footage which surfaced yesterday showed the Senior Manager of Operations, Northern Region at MTN Zambia hitting his son multiple times after the boy, failed to sit for his Maths and English exams, failed other courses but got a distinction in Music despite the father paying $21,000 as tuition fees in the American International School of Lusaka, Zambia.
”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 angry father said while beating and scolding him.
A woman was recording the episode while begging the father to stop beating the boy repeatedly. Social media users generated mixed reactions towards the video which also led to a trend on Twitter, with some condemning the father for child abuse and others in support of his actions.
