===School caning===
[[School corporal punishment]] is lawful in Zimbabwe, for [[boy]]s only. National rules stipulate that it is to be applied to the offender's [[buttocks]] with a light [[cane]].
 
British-style boys' [[boarding school]]s where [[caning]] continues to be prevalent include Falcon College, Peterhouse, and St George's School.
 
At Falcon College, caning is referred to as "beating" and a student who has received six strokes of the cane is described as having been "beaten six".
[[Judicial corporal punishment|Judicial caning]] on the [[bare buttocks]] is available to the [[court]]s as a penalty for male [[juvenile]]s aged under 18.
 
At Peterhouse School, strokes of the cane are called "cuts" and may be administered by the Rector, Senior Master and Housemasters. Routine canings are usually provided by the housemasters. The punishment is applied to the seat of the boy's trousers as he stands facing a wall. [[Prefect]]s no longer have the right to cane younger boys.
 
===Judicial caning===
 
[[Judicial corporal punishment|Judicial caning]] on the [[bare buttocks]] is available to the [[court]]s as a penalty for male [[juvenile]]s aged under 18 for various offences. The court stipulates who is to deliver the caning. It may be "an experienced designated member of the police force", or the youth may be sent to a prison or reformatory to receive his punishment.<ref>[http://www.corpun.com/rules3.htm#zimbabwe Zimbabwe: Judicial CP] at World Corporal Punishment Research.</ref>
