Kenyan dad, George Mambezi, who went viral for beating his son who failed in his exams, has now responded to the criticism he received online.
After going viral for scolding his son for getting an A only in music and failing other subjects including Mathematics and English despite spending 21,000 USD to pay his school fees, many social media users condemned George Mambezi’s approach at correcting the young lad.
George, in a letter addressed to a Zambian blog, has now responded to the criticism’s, according to him, only he can decide how best to discipline his son as he was brought up in the village and his Christian religion permits him to discipline his child.
The man further said that anyone who isn’t happy with the way he treated his son, should come and file papers and adopt the young man. He said;
“First of all Bambino is my son and I have the right to discipline him, am a staunch Christian and an advocate for human rights.”
”In as much as I can slap my son, it’s all because of love and me wanting the best for him.
I cannot kill him or feed him snakes if he requested for fish. I grew up in the village and am one of the few people that were privileged to acquire a sound education and I would want to pass that legacy to the next generation.”
”The Bible clearly says spare the rod spoil the child in Proverbs 13:24. I won’t let my child eat ma 2V in the name of human rights therefore if you think I was wrong , go to the relevant authorities and process the adoption papers for him.”
”Let’s see if you will be happy seeing him walk in the streets singing for K2 like Fly Jay and Lawino after spending $21,000 on tuition.”
