Zimbabwe police arrest activist over high school fees protest
This arrest was a result of the 'Fees Must Fall' protest at Mabvuku High School.
HARARE - Police in Zimbabwe have arrested a student leader for holding a demonstration against high school fees.
Tonderai Dombo is currently being held at a police station in the Harare suburb of Mabvuku.
This arrest was a result of the “Fees Must Fall” protest at Mabvuku High School.
Right groups say Dombo helped organise the demonstration.
Zimbabwean Lawyers for Human Rights say the activist is being held at Mabvuku Police Station, which is in the east of the city.
They have been widespread complaints from teachers and parents over high school fees and the fact that it’s very hard to get cash out of the banks to buy books and uniforms.
Some bank customers say they’re only able to withdraw $50 per week and the money is all in coins.
