I received the report from the school head, so I am planning to go on the ground to interview teachers, students and parents on the matter so as to give my superiors the correct version.

A teacher who spoke to Newsday on condition that their identity is not divulged said:
The officials came and demanded a classroom during learning hours, around noon, and since we were afraid of victimisation, the school head complied and lessons had to stop.
Fear gripped many of us since we were part of the schools that were forced to close during the fuel prices protests last week.
Meanwhile, A Zanu PF central committee member, Eleven Kambizi admitted that they requested to use a classroom at the school because it was raining. He said that the meeting could not have disrupted lessons.
