We are today protesting against issues that are not making us happy. For example WiFi is limited. We don’t have WiFi in our hostels yet we pay $300 per semester or even $450. Some of the conditions are we move furniture almost everyday. Our library is so small, its like a toilet and you expect us to fit in there and produce better results. Hapana mafaro, opening bash hapana and yet you expect us kuti tisaite musikanzwa. That’s why tichingoita nhumbu dzacho beacuse zvakadhakwa. (There is no opening bash and yet you expect us to behave. That’s why we get pregnant.
