Mnangagwa Warns Lecturers Not To Take Advantage of Students, Promise To Meet Students Soon

President Emmerson Mnangagwa warned university lecturers to stop taking advantage of their positions to abuse students. The president said this at the inaugural meeting with Vice-Chancellors and Principals of Tertiary Institutions at the Harare International Conference Centre on Tuesday. Mnangagwa said that real men do not prowl the corridors of tertiary institutions taking advantage of helpless students. He warned that lecturers who go against this code, and take advantage of vulnerable students would be brought to book.  He also urged the students to report cases of abuse and corruption without fear of victimization The president went on to state that he was going to meet with students from the country’s institutions in order to look into their welfare.  Mnangagwa, who is the Chancellor of all state universities also revealed that the government was concerned by the high levels of moral decadence at universities and tertiary institutions.

He urged the universities to produce graduates with skills which are required by the local industry. He said that the institutions must ensure that the knowledge gained by students is used for development. Mnangagwa added that the institutions should not boast about the high literacy rates or the number of graduates produced. Instead, the institutions should boast of the number of products produced at their institutions.

  1. “….the institutions should boast of the number of products produced at their institutions.” – SPOT ON.

  2. Why can’t we give it a try and see what the results will be like. You can’t fear to fry on a plane before you fly on it.

  3. Open the industries Mr President,on dealing against corrupt activities this is a best move you have tackled. My question now is, were are we to report corrupt activities?, for instance at the University of Zimbabwe they have what we refer to as GB’s meaning the university guards are we to report to them,and mostly do they raise our concerns to the higher ministry?
