Case continues for five Masvingo student activists

Five Masvingo student activists, Brighton Ramusi, Prosper Tiringindi, Zivanai Muzorodzi, Godfrey Kurauone and Brian Chimwayi appeared in court today the 26th of March before Masvingo Magistrate. 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).

Their case has been postponed to the 30th of March where the defense council is expected to continue calling witnesses. Their case emanated from challenging failure by Masvingo Polytechnic College authorities to refund students who enrolled for a tourism program that suffered a still birth. After initially advertising the introduction of this 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.
