  • Students hail FeyaFeya
    Zimbabwe National Students Union (ZINASU)
    July 05, 2013

    The Zimbabwe 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.
