- OVER 700 STUDENTS WITH OUTSTANDING FEES BALANCES LIKELY TO BE FORCED TO DEFER
- EITHER ALL STUDENTS WRITE, OR ALL STUDENT MISS EXAMS: SRC DECLARES
Over 700 students are likely not to write exams and will be forced to defer due to outstanding fees balances, said the Student Representative Council Spokesperson, Costa Nkomo.
Nkomo said, in a video news release that the council was still negotiating with the university administration that all students be allowed to sit for exams even if they are owing considering the current economic situation bedeviling Zimbabwe.
“We are still trying to persuade the institution to consider our request and we hope they will heed our call,” Nkomo said. “However, if the administration turns a deaf ear, we will ensure that either ALL STUDENTS write or ALL STUDENTS defer.”
The SRC also invited both affected and non-affected students to meet in solidarity on Monday, 21st November, in order to find a solution to the university’s stance on struggling students.
A cross section of students who are not affected by the matter took a positive stand about joining in harmony with their affected counter parts.
Kudzai Chinowaita, a part four student in the faculty of commerce said: “We need to be united and each be our brother’s keeper in order to achieve this. I cannot smile when my fellow colleague is stressed, we need to fight together in one corner.”
Students will start their end of semester exams on the 28th of November 2016.
