Strikes and Protests 2007/8 - Students
Arrested students still in police holding cells
Students Union (ZINASU)
February 14, 2007
Promise Mkwananzi and 11 other students are still in Police holding
cells and are being continually denied food and legal representation.
Scores of concerned fellow students went to Harare Central Police,
demanding unconditional release of their colleagues but were harrased
and threatened with arrest. It is also further reported that the
overzealous Harare Polytechnic College Principal, little known Steven
P Raza mounted the College entrance harassing students, lecturers
and non-academic staff. Lawyers from the Zimbabwe
Lawyers for Human Rights have confirmed that some lecturers
were also arrested during the students protest but their names and
where abouts have not been revealed.
However, ZINASU Secretary General, Beloved Chiweshe warned the Government
of Zimbabwe, that the continued unlawful detention of students is
a highly flammable act of injustice and that the students in Zimbabwe
will soon rise and turn this country ungovernable; "We want
regime change". He reiterated that unless and until the demands
in the Ultimatum are addressed fully, the students shall continue
undiluted and unabated in fighting the illegitimate rogue Government
of Robert Mugabe HEAD ON.
