University of Zimbabwe students’ union today frowned against the school’s authorities decision to ban kissing on campus and s*xual activities whatsoever.
The students who protested said the rules were childish and are unaccepted.
In a circular displayed at halls of residence, authorities at the University of Zimbabwe said students “caught in any intimate position such as kissing or having s*x in public places” would be punished.
The university also barred resident students from bringing members of the opposite s*x to their hostels and “loitering in dark places outside the sports pavilion or lecture venues.”
Student leader Gilbert Mutubuki said students would resist the rules introduced two weeks ago.
“We are against these rules which we view as archaic, repressive and evil,” Mutubuki, president of the Zimbabwe National Students Union (ZINASSU) told AFP.
“We are urging students to resist the rules. These rules reduce the university to a primary school. The authorities need to be reminded that this is an institute for adults who are mature.”
“We believe these are security measures meant to limit students from associating,” he said
