continues for five Masvingo activists
March 26, 2012
Five Masvingo student activists, Brighton Ramusi, Prosper Tiringindi,
Zivanai Muzorodzi, Godfrey Kurauone and Brian Chimwayi appeared
in court today the 26th of March before Masvingo Magistrate. They
were facing charges of public violence which were later changed
to assault as defined in section 89 of the Criminal
Law (codification and Reform) Act (Chapter 9:23). Their case
has been postponed to the 30th of March where the defense council
is expected to continue calling witnesses. Their case emanated from
challenging failure by Masvingo Polytechnic College authorities
to refund students who enrolled for a tourism program that suffered
a still birth. After initially advertising the introduction of this
department and accepting payment from students, the authority have
now made an about turn by scrapping plans to have the department
and seems to be uninterested in refunding the students.
