Student Thieves Wreak Havoc at Midlands State University

The Editor,

Despite the advertised core values of Honesty, Integrity, Accountability, and Respect for others among other values, Midlands State University students are facing uncertain future due to rising thieving from fellow students, with some cheeky thieves lifting whole bags with a student's livelihood. 

As I write today students are concerned because just this week alone, some students have lost whole bags of their livelihood, laptops, and gadgets. One student is left with clothes on her body only and the University is not helping in any way. The cases were reported to the University security to no avail.This leaves me wondering what kind of future Zimbabwe is facing. Our expectation as a society is for an institution of higher education to be molding future leaders with high morals and intact credibility.

Midlands State University leadership must be ashamed of themselves for presiding on an institution of thieves instead of students. These thieving activities reflect badly on their leadership. The leadership has the power to address this scourge once and for all; what happened to the motto, "'the buck stops with me?"

Schools are not there for academics but for molding the ethos of students. We always pride of the schools we went to, the teachers who taught us, and the classmates we had.

The Vice Chancellor must be ashamed of himself because he has the power to stop this nonsense once and for all. He can stop all lectures until this scourge is addressed. How does a whole school continue with lectures when students lose whole bags of their livelihoods to fellow student thieves? What kind of message is the school sending? This is disgusting.

Sincerely Yours,

Sam Wezhira
