Takwirira High Chisumbanje students staged a powerful demonstration
Published: 07 March 2018 (280 Views)
The events of March 2 2018 will be remembered in the history of Takwirira Government High School.

The School is located about seven Kilometres from Checheche growth point, 80 Km from Chiredzi. The morning of March 2 marked the beginning of powerful demonstration which had to draw the attention of DSI Chipinge District, Police to mention just a few. The pupils started by writing on the staffroom block big words "TINODA BUS".

The headmaster Mr Madhuku got in a panic mode and started to reprimand the kids but the students started to group up at assembly point demanding their bus. Students started to sing songs marching around the school. One of the prominent song of the demonstration was "Tinoda Bus". Immediately after the rounds in the school the pupils went out of the school gate and marched to the SDA chairman Mr Nyakurwa, the Vice Chairman Mr Maphosa singing songs demanding their bus.

In the highway pupils had altercations with quite a number of motorists, the notable motorist was a ZESA truck driver who later went to the police station to transport police to the school. The DSI Mr Gabaza together with his team came to the school to find out what was happening. He later (DSI), addressed the kids. Mr Madhuku the School head was barred by the kids to address them as they view him as the culprit.

Below is a highlight of some problems affecting the school Takwirira Gvnt high which triggered this demonstration apart from the bus demanded by the school children.

1.  The school has one SDA Chairman for almost 20 years, he now appears as if he is substantive. He connives with the headmaster to still school funds, buying cars, building houses. The Headmaster has 3 known vehicles... Honda Fit, Nissan Caravan, Nissan Ext rail to mention a few. The chairman has Nissan Gaia Vehicle, motorbikes etc. All these assets are procured from school funds.

2.  The headmaster uses his phone as the account for the school, parent's transfer fees directly in the head's eco-cash account. This system causes a lot of shortfalls to be registered. As a result, parents are paying bus levy to no avail. It is almost 4 year's parents paying bus levy.

3.  Some parents are forced to buy uniforms from the school, the uniforms are of poor quality

4.  The school has no substantive deputy head, the one who was at the school was victimised by the school head and transferred from the school getting assistance from the chairman. The main reason was for the head to still at will without any problems.

This form of corruption is happening right under the nose of the DSI Chipinge district Mr Gabaza without him taking action. Corruption should be condemned at all levels. Something must be done at the school without delay.
