Students Union (ZINASU)
July 05, 2013
National Students Union (ZINASU) has hailed the recently launched
FeyaFeya Campaign as a great initiative which the Union would fully
participate in during the period that it would run. The Campaign's
main objective is to demand and promote the concept of free
and fair elections in Zimbabwe. ZINASU President Pride Mkono
further pledged that ZINASU would take FeyaFeya to all the member
institutions that are currently opened so that students can also
add their voice to the Campaign and thus demand free and fair elections
inline with the general Council Resolution
1, which demanded free and fair elections at all levels.
"We as a Union will take this campaign across all institutions
that are currently opened and ensure that all students take part
in FeyaFeya, in fact we demand FeyaFeya beyond just national elections.
We want FeyaFeya in SRC elections, in payment of tuition fees and
in everything we do on campus," said President Mkono.
ZINASU also held a 4 day Peace Building workshop which drew participants
from across the 46 member institutions of ZINASU as part of the
on-going intensive initiative to get students to meaningfully participate
in the election to be held in the next few weeks.
The major objective
of the workshop was to train students in peace building and conflict
transformation so that they could use these skills to be proactive
in the creation of a peaceful environment ahead before, during and
after elections. Participants to the training would also become
peace ambassadors in their institutions and also communities during
the election period.
The ZINASU Vice
President Believe Tevera thanked the National
Association of Non-governmental Organisations (NANGO) for the
supporting the programme through the Church and Civic Society Forum
(CCSF) which aims to build peaceful communities through capacitating
communities on peace building and conflict transformation.
Meanwhile ZINASU calls upon young people to go in their numbers
to register as voters before the end of the 30 day Mobile Voter
Registration (MVR) exercise on the 9th of July 2013.
