When ZAPU decided to go to war of liberation, the other main thing was to fight for the people to get free and fair education. It is amazing now that the war ended  long back, but learner's rights are being abused.

Last time it was Dokora who forced learners to adopt national pledge which many people criticised as not good thing to be learnt  and practised in schools.

In March RG Mugabe forced closure of Matsouth schools and ordered the principals to pay a certain amount for his multimillion birthday bash, teachers were also forced to bus students to the venue using school buses

Now it is Dr Utete Masango who is declaring that Matsouth schools must be closed.

Utete and all ZANU destructors need to face resistance from the masses

ZANU is creating chaos and confusion in Zimbabwe and Education sector has changed drastically . Schools sharpen learners minds,they make learners enjoy and teachers also when well  paid they act in a loco-parentis manner and give children that warmth and enthusiasm and act as a substitute when parents are not available.

Closing schools will make learners suffer because they will now travel long distances and they can encounter challenges of floods during rain season and other factors.

ZAPU youth front condemn the move and denounce it , describing it as a bad idea which is introduced by incompetent government which needs to be eradicated before things get worse.
