ZINASU President, Promise Mkwananzi and 11 other students are still in
Police holding cells and are being continually denied food and legal
representation. Scores of concerned fellow students went to Harare
Central Police, demanding unconditional release of their colleagues but were<

BR>harrased and threatened with arrest. It is also further reported that
the overzealous Harare Polytechnic College Principal, little known Steven P
Raza mounted the College entrance harassing students, lecturers and
non-academic staff. Lawyers from the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Huamn Rights have
confirmed that some lecturers were also arrested during the students protest but
their names and whereareabouts have not been revealed.

However, ZINASU Secretary General, Beloved Chiweshe warned the
Government of Zimbabwe, that the continued unlawful detention of students is a highly
flammable act of injustice and that the students in Zimbabwe will soon
rise and turn this country ungovernable; “We want regime change”. He
reiterated that unless and until the demands in the Ultimatum are addressed fully,
the students shall continue undiluted and unabated in fighting the
illegitimate rogue Government of Robert Mugabe HEAD ON.
