threaten student leaders in Bindura
National Students Union (ZINASU)
May 31, 2007
In a bid to
instil fear and suppress students' voices in the Mashonaland Central
region, members from the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) yesterday
paid a surprise visit to the Bindura University of Science Education
(BUSE) campus. The police officers under the leadership of a DISPO
demanded to have a briefing with the Students Representative Council
(SRC) members. The student leaders were mesmerised when the DISPO
(name unknown) produced a list of names of some SRC members and
summoned them to the office of the university's Dean of Students,
Mr Makado who also attended this so called meeting.
Five SRC members,
Laswet Savadye, the SRC President; Chiedza Gadzirai, Vice President;
Ronald Tafirenyika, Yvette Mubvumba, Gender Officer and Brezhnev
Dengu attended the meeting. The police explained the purpose of
their visit as a mission of familiarizing with each other and proceeded
to demand fullnames, cellphone numbers and portfolios of the five
It is suspected that this was a deliberate effort by the police
to instil fear in the student movement such that they will feel
uncomfortable to actively participate in student union business.
