Spanking in Zimbabwe
School corporal punishment is lawful in Zimbabwe, for boys only. National rules stipulate that it is to be applied to the offender's buttocks with a light cane.
British-style boys' boarding schools where caning continues to be prevalent include Falcon College, Peterhouse, and St George's School.
Judicial caning on the bare buttocks is available to the courts as a penalty for male juveniles aged under 18.
