School Asked Why Its Uniform Is Yellow - Report

School Asked Why Its Uniform Is Yellow - Report

A Bulawayo-based journalist, Zenzele Ndebele, has reported that some unnamed people visited a school in uMzingwane District, Matabeleland South Province asking why the learning institution’s uniform was yellow.

This follows some unverified reports that a verbal directive was made recently when school heads met in Marondera that teachers must not wear yellow when they come to work. Zenzele said on Twitter:

Is wearing yellow now a crime?. I hear some people visited a school in uMzingwane District asking why the school uniform is yellow. 

The reports came after the launch of the newly-formed Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) party led by Nelson Chamisa.

It is argued by some observers that the move is meant to reduce the party’s popularity.

Efforts to get a comment from the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education were fruitless as our calls were not not being picked.

Meanwhile, Dr Takavafira Zhou, the president of the Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ) told Pindula News that they had received such reports.

He said the directive was not communicated formally or clearly. He told this reporter in an interview:

Teachers across the country are reporting that the matter was discussed but we haven’t received a formal communication ourselves. Infact, there are some schools tha are being told to change their uniforms. In case someone is planning to put it into writing, we say this decree is a  nullity, schools cannot change uniforms on the basis that a new political party wears the same colour. What came first the school uniform or CCC? The law doesn’t operate in retrospection. 

Zhou added that authorities deliberately give verbal instructions whenever they do illegal deals “just like the supension of teachers that were not put into writing. Nether the head office nor the provincial office issue any document.”

We are going to phase out anything yellow. Even the flag, we want it red; representing the blood of our fallen heroes who died for our beloved Zimbabwe.

aaah thus now too much, bananas are yellow too.So colours for bananas have to be changed to avoid the colour. So if someone owns anything with yellow now you have to change it, Mr X bought his yellow car in 2018 does that mean Mr X has to spray paint his car in another colour 🤔🤔.
