They are students who are studying commercials at the University who were on attachment. At first they were detained at the Great Zimbabwe University, and then they were moved to Rujeko Police Station and they were later moved to Masvingo Central Police Station. They have been released on free bail and the trial will start on the 12th of March 2012.
The Students Solidarity Trust continues to implore the ministry of higher and tertiary education to rain in on errant persecuting authorities at some of the tertiary institutions. Not withstanding that the students were on attachment, University authorities have come down hard on them and this is regrettable in such an economic situation.
