Zimbabwe: Zanu-PF MPs Confront Minister Over School Fees Hikes

13 February 2020

Zanu PF Buhera South MP Joseph Chinotimba led legislators from his party Wednesday to condemn government's move to hike fees in universities while salaries for parents and guardians remained below the poverty datum line (PDL).

Chinotimba questioned why Higher Education Minister Amon Murwira had increased college fees beyond the reach of most parents to the applause of opposition MDC MPs.

The Zimbabwe Examination Schools Council (ZIMSEC) also last week increased examination fees for 'O' Level and 'A' Level subjects.
