Lecturers at the Midlands State University (MSU) on Friday announced that they have suspended lectures due to incapacitation.
The lecturers wrote a letter to the university’s council and Vice-Chancellor, Victor Muzvidziwa, advising him that lectures will only commence when their grievances have been addressed. The letter reads in part:
We write to advise that we had a joint General Assembly meeting for both teaching and non-teaching staff today (Friday) in the Great Hall at the main campus.
Members made and adopted the following resolution: That all employees at Midlands State University are incapacitated to come to work with immediate effect.
All members will be waiting for the employer to capacitate them so that they report for work.
Earlier this week, lecturers at the National University of Science and Technology (NUST) in Bulawayo and the Zimbabwe Open University (ZOU) also informed universities authorities that they are incapacitated to report for duty.
