On Saturday, a group of men suspected to be soldiers assaulted 13 Midlands State University (MSU) students at Senga Training Centre near the university’s main campus. The suspected soldiers and the students were fighting over a woman believed to be a prostitute at a local night spot.
The incident occurred at 8PM when a group of people claiming to be soldiers pounced on the students who were drinking beer in a canteen and started assaulting them at random with snooker cues. Sources who spoke to The Chronicle said that a student had earlier had a confrontation with a soldier at the Bowling Club over a woman before the students allegedly teamed up to assault the “soldier” before fleeing the scene.
MSU Director of Information and Public Relations Mrs Mirirai Mawere confirmed the incident and said the matter has been reported at Senga Police Station. Zimbabwe Military Academy (ZMA) Chief Instructor Lieutenant Colonel Phillip Marangisi said that none of his students were reported missing at the time the incident is said to have occurred after they carried a head count after receiving information that soldiers had assaulted MSU students. He said that they are willing to assist the police to arrest the people who are tarnishing the image of the ZMA.
