The teachers, Christ Makonese, 50, and Memory Gwekwerere, 54, appeared before Harare magistrate Caroline Matanga, who rolled over the matter to 8 December for trial.
It is alleged that on 11 October, some learners went and reported to Makonese that the complainant had started a false rumour against another pupil.
The duo called the complainant and Makonese allegedly slapped her once on her cheek while Gwekwerere pinched her ears before slapping her again.
The complainant’s class teacher, Mrs Kamkosi, then told the two that her mother doesn’t want her to be beaten.
H-Metro reports that Makonese and Gwekwerere were released on free bail as they were brought to court on summons.
