SRC Councillors Disgruntled Over Executive Appointments 

By Staff Reporter | NUST-ZW | @campusmoments13(twitter)

THE majority  of SRC members have registered their discontent with President Terrence Shoko’s move to appoint the student executive board. 

In a provisional document addressed to the Dean of Students for intervention in possession of Campus Moments, the incumbent nine out of 13 SRC councillors, challenged  the legitimacy of the appointment of Secretary General, Treasurer General and External Affairs Officer. 

According to a statement in the document, the aggrieved councillors alleged that Shoko moved to impose Mzingaye Ndhlovu  as Secretary General after losing the position to Billy Muchipisi by 3 votes in executive board elections held on the 24th of October 2016.

“It is democratic to marry constitutionalism as cited in article 16.2 (of the NUST SRC Constitution ) which states that: A simple majority shall be required before the passing of any resolution before the SRC; this article was breached by the President,”said the councillors. 

However, Shoko said he was not aware that some members of his Council were discontent. 

 He added that he would address any arising matters at a Press conference to be held on the 26th of  October 2016 at the Delta Lecture Theatre at NUST. 

The appointed candidates include Mpumelelo Dube for Treasurer General, Trevor Muzungu for External Affairs Officer and Mzingaye Ndhlovu for Secretary General
