Speaking to villagers during a Cotton Company of Zimbabwe awareness campaign, Chief Mabika of Bikita in Masvingo province, revealed that he has asked schools under his jurisdiction to avail names of parents who have school fees arrears as he intends to force them to sell their goats and cattle so as to clear the arrears.
Chief Mabika said parents in his area are neglecting the payment of school fees a development that has seen schools engaging him for a quick recovery of the funds. He said it is unfortunate that parents do not see the value of financing the education of their children hence his decision to deploy his village police to collect livestock to be sold to clear arrears at surrounding schools.
