Mr. George Mambezi, the Kenyan father who went viral for slapping his son after he failed exams despite the fact that he paid $21,000 as his tuition fees has responded to critics.
According to the information shared online, George Mambezi who is a staff of a multinational national telecommunications company in Zambia did not even sit for his Maths and English Exams.
For the other courses, he performed very poorly. But surprisingly, he scored grade ‘A’ in music.
That was what infuriated the father to discipline his son for his wasting his money when he knows perfectly that music is his passion and he has no desire for school.
He also believe education is the key and could not understand why his son is not taking his education seriously when he hopes to pass on a legacy.

Well, his action was not well received by human rights groups on social media when the video of the man assaulting his son surfaced online.
But the man has hit back at the critics who think they know better than him when it comes to disciplining his own son.
According to the man in a Facebook note sent to a Zambian blog, if people think he was wrong in disciplining his son, they should come and adopt him and serve him the best of food when he purposely fails exams.
Mr. George Mambezi posted on Facebook:
“I know your page is the most happening and the most popular in Zambia at the moment so I would like to address this issue on your platform for the maximum audience.”
“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.”
Mr. George Mambezi has since been invited by the Zambian police for questioning on the incident.
