The Zimbabwe Peace Project has claimed that opposition party members' children were being denied access to educational assistance under the Basic Education Assistance Module (Beam).

In its January report ZPP disclosed that in Bindura South score of school children whose parents were affiliated to the NDC-T had their names scrapped off the Bean beneficiaries list.

Those whose parents were MDC-T supporters were told that they would be contacted later and it is alleged that some of the children of Zanu-PF members listed could not be classified as vulnerable.

The non-governmental organisation also reported that incidences of violence perpetrated on Zanu-PF supporters were much higher than any other political party because of intra party fighting and factionalism.

The ZPP said purges of alleged supporters of deposed former Vice President Joice Mujuru were witnessed even at lower levels of the party.
