‘Govt Has Not Approved Any School Fees Hikes’

President Emmerson Mnangagwa said that the government has not approved any school fees increases ahead of the opening of schools on 14 January.

Responding to complaints from a crowd made up of mostly residents bussed in from different suburbs in Kuwadzana during the National Clean-up Campaign on Friday, President Mnangagwa said:

I have heard that you are complaining that school fees have been increased. We haven’t approved any fees hikes. All government schools haven’t increased school fees and the government has not approved any fees hike.

What I have are requests by local authorities that they want to increase rates and from what I have gathered here as your grievances, I am going to refuse those requests.

The first National Clean-up Campaign in 2013 was delayed by nearly two hours to allow Zupco and Zanu PF buses to bring in people from outside Kuwadzana.

NewsDay reports that police chased away vendors from Kuwadzana 2 shopping centre and forced small shops to close.
