ZANU PF officials in Guruve district, Mashonaland Central province reportedly disrupted lessons at Nyamangore Secondary School on Tuesday after they demanded a classroom for their caucus meeting.

Guruve District Schools Inspector Pinias Dambuza confirmed the case saying investigations are underway.

"I received the report from the school head (Gale Ndlovu) so l am planning to go on the ground to interview teachers, students and parents on the matter so as to give my superiors the correct version," Dambuza said

A teacher who declined to be named claims  the officials came clad in party regalia and demanded a classroom there by creating a tense environment at the school since the school had temporary closed during the violent protest over fuel price hikes last week.

"The officials came and demanded a classroom during learning hours around 12am and since we were afraid of victimisation the school head complied and lessons had to stop terror gripped up since we were part of the schools that closed during the fuel price protest last week," said the teacher.

Contacted for comment ZANU PF central committee member Eleven Kambizi said they meeting was held with the blessings of the school head.

"We had our meeting at the school around 12am yes but it was raining so the local leadership asked for shelter and we were given a classroom, I don't think lessons were disrupted by our emergency meeting," said Kambizi.
