  • ZINASU leadership meets with COPAC
    Zimbabwe National Students Union (ZINASU) (Chinyere)

    January 11, 2010

    The Zimbabwe National Students Union National Executive Council (NEC) members met with the Parliamentary Select Committee on Constitution on the 9th of January 2009 to discuss the current constitution making process. The ZINASU team led by the President, Joshua Chinyere met with Honorable Douglas Mwonzora, one of the co-chairs of the committee.

    The ZINASU team reiterated the need for students to fully contribute to the constitution making process as it offers students an opportunity to demand that education be recognized as a basic human right. President Chinyere stated that students were fully prepared to take an active part in the compilation of student's expectations and demands in the new constitution.

    The UNION will embark on college visits to mobilize and educate students on the need to fully participate in the new constititution. This comes after students resolved to take part in the constitution making process at the ZINASU Bi Annual Congress held on the 19th of December 2009. The congress saw the election of new NEC members headed by Joshua Chinyere.

    The new leadership which took over from the Brilliant Dube executive has been working very hard since their inception three weeks ago. They managed to meet up with Vice Chancellors of different Universities over issues of deferments of students over nonpayment of tuition fees and the continued victimization of student leaders in colleges. The NEC members will embark on a national tour this week to audit the current state of the education sector in Zimbabwe.
