Written by Olarotimi Oshin on September 15, 2022
Amnesty International has called for the Zimbabwean authorities to drop charges against university students who have been protesting against an abrupt hike in tuition fees.
Reports received from the country safy fourteen students were arrested on Monday while five others were arrested on Wednesday and charged with disorderly conduct.
They were reportedly released after paying a fine.
Amnesty said it was a travesty of justice that people were having to spend time in detention and courtrooms for simply asking for affordable education.
