GWERU – Mkoba Teachers’ College in Gweru is reportedly sending away students who have not paid their fees.
Some students who called or visited The Mirror alleged that the worst is that the college, one of the oldest teacher training institutions in Zimbabwe is threatening to defer students who don’t pay their fees in the next seven days.
They also alleged that the College is refusing payment plans.
The College Vice-Principal, Peter Njini however, dismissed the allegations and said the story was news to him.
“There is no logic for us to send students away and then give them an ultimatum to pay. I have not heard anything of the sort, not here,” said Njini.
However students who spoke to The Mirror alleged that they were not being allowed to attend lessons unless they pay $260 in fees. They alleged that students have to take receipts to lessons as proof that they had paid fees.
“I have not attended lectures since yesterday because l haven’t paid my fees for second term. Lectures are only being attended by students with receipts.
“The college also does not allow students who paid fees through RTGs to attend lessons until the money reflects in the school account,” said one student
