The Lawyer representing

court on constitutional issues arguing that the charges are frivolous
and vestaxious and threfore do not warrant the students to be continually
brought to court.The Lawyer will also challenge the constitutionality
of their arrest and raise the inhuman and degrading treatment that
they were subjected to while in the custody of the police.
Leaders have instructed the Lawyer to challenge the sections of
that the police abuse to apprehend the students as being ultravires
the constitution. ZINASU President Promise Mkwananzi has vowed to
take the matter to the African Union and appealed to the lnternational
students and the lnternational comminity at large to pile
pressure on the incumbent government to allow students to meet and
discuss issues affecting them.He promised that the struggle would,in
spite of the obtaining repressive environment continue unabated
and further called on the students to embrace calls for a national
class boycott to press for the alleviation of the problems bedevelling
the students movement.
