Five Masvingo student activists, Brighton Ramusi, Prosper Tiringindi,
Zivanai Muzorodzi, Godfrey Kurauone and Brian Chimwayi appeared
in court yesterday the 29th of March before a Masvingo Magistrate
for continuation of their trial. 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). Today, Arnold

continue on the 5th of April when he will be cross-examined by the
Their case emanated
from challenging failure by Masvingo Polytechnic College authorities
to refund students who enrolled for a tourism program that suffered

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.
