Police are looking for a teacher who repeatedly had sex with his student until she got pregnant.

The 32-year-old teacher of Masvingo Province, southern Zimbabwe, disappeared after learning that his student became pregnant by him.

Tafadzwa Mutepfe worked as a six grade teacher at the Gutu United Primary School, when he began sleeping with his 11-year-old student. The girl, who is reportedly three months pregnant, said that she was in love with her teacher and that they would see each other every day of the week except on the weekends.

Gutu United School principal Mrs. Elizabeth Chitsa, confirmed the report, but referred all questions to the district education officer Mr. Christian Chirikure. The incident came to light when the girl’s mother realized that the girl was pregnant and questioned her as to who the father may be.

The sixth grader admitted to having unprotected sex with her teacher. The mother called the police, but when the teacher got wind that the police were looking for him he ran away.

The teacher is still on the run, but as soon as he returns, police will be looking to charge him with sex related crimes against a minor.
