Students Activism: Violence Breaks At UZ As ZICOSU Loses To ZINASU

Students Activism: Violence Breaks At UZ As ZICOSU Loses To ZINASU

Violence reportedly broke out at the University of Zimbabwe when the ZANU PF-aligned ZICOSU lost the election to the opposition-aligned ZINASU.

Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) national spokesperson, Fadzayi Mahere has condemned the violence. Posting on Twitter this Saturday, Mahere said:

We’ve received disturbing reports that violence broke out at the UZ yesterday after ZICOSU lost the election to ZINASU. It is reported that armed @PoliceZimbabwe beat up students. This is not the Zimbabwe we want. Students must be allowed to make choices without persecution.

ZINASU’s Allan Chipoyi won the presidency while ZICOSU’s President, Darlington Chiwa, became the Vice President.

It is alleged that ZICOSU had earlier threatened violence if its candidate loses.

Some students also reported that ZICOSU was donating chicken inn, caps and t-shirts to students to influence them to vote against ZINASU.

Observers say if police are beating up students for voting for a ZINASU candidate, they will likely do more if ZANU PF loses elections in 2023. 

Some urged the opposition to put in place defence mechanisms such as awareness campaigns at the international level and seeking serious allies.

You hate the truth. There is a political police. A ZANU police. I remember during the early 2000s when the aging war veterans would fight machinja hiding behind the ZRP. Ma ZANU anodenha ozodaidza police. The majority of them are cowards. Ndakazviona pana Kudzi Chipanga

Is it questionable? Doesn't the police surface to defend ZANU evils? Just yesterday they blocked a PSMAS AGM which was meant to protect the interests of the masses to shield the ZANU unrepentant system. So we know how the police operates. In ZANU there is also a tactic of handing out uniforms and button sticks to the party's militia so as to victimize the opposition. There is overwhelming evidence

@VYBZ Ketero, ZANU Republic Police are the hunting dogs of ZANU. Their job is not to maintain law and order but to maintain ZANU hold on power at all costs

@Muka**** did I ever say student politics is not important? My question is about why did the police react the way they did because Maheres story seems incomplete and one sided.

The unfortunate part is that comradeship in Zimbabwe seems to be aligned to the ruling party alone. It won't be surprising to find these ZICOSU kids calling themselves ma comrades vachiimba nziyo dzehondo. Don't be surprised kuti varipo pa 160 000 war veterans to be backpaid from before the millennium. Poverty forces people to join ZANU Pf hoping to loot.

CCC Spokesperson, Fadzai Mahere's story that University of Zimbabwe students held elections at their campus in which ZICOSU candidate was bitten by ZINASU candidate is complete. Police and education are water and paint. They do not mix. Everytime Police are called to quell a small misunderstanding at the University of Zimbabwe, they become possessed with satanism and end up beating students.

Dzimwe ngano dzinoda ma photo pic.When violence breaks out, how does a ZRP Constable know who voted for which candidate?

Jojo Zvenyika Chenjera 1 month ago

@Dub Chemist let me try to knock sense into your head. These are Zanu Pf thugs adorned in police fatigue. They are untrained,unskilled & are sent with the directive to some st the skull and hot anyone you meet. Mapurisa who are trained have families and earn peanuts do not beat innocent civilians vanotonzi mashef imi mirayi uko tirove vanhu. Some of the youths who partake in these heinous acts are found in Tagara and Mabvuku. Vanototaura kuti tadaidzwa kunorova vanhu. In that instance they don't care who u are they strike at random. In any case if the students voted for Zinasu it means mapurisa Aya ( the pseudo ones) are instructed to go and hit all of them.
