The MDC-T has promised to restore sanity to the country’s dilapidated tertiary institutions, which it describes as “maximum security prisons” killing the future.

Speaking during a public debate on the “Costs and Benefits of Election” organized by the Mass Public Opinion Institute here this week, party spokesperson, Douglas Mwonzora, blamed the former ruling party for the sorry state of the tertiary facilities.

“The reckless behavior of Zanu (PF) is evident especially in tertiary colleges and universities where conditions are deplorable. They churn out intellectual rebels, not visionary graduates,” Mwonzora said.

A few years ago the University of Zimbabwe closed its halls of residence and kitchen owing to uninhabitable conditions. Observers say this is reflective of the decay spreading across the whole tertiary domain.

The MDC believes only free and fair elections will enable the restoration of order and hope to students.
