ZANU PF bigwigs were in a panic mode when they realised that 25 October they set aside for protest against sanctions clashed with O and A level examinations.
In what appeared to be an attempt to exercse some damage control measures , the minister of primary and secondary education professor Paul Mavima released a press statement.
In his press release professor Mavima writes “when government declared Friday 25 October 2019 a public holiday to mark SADC solidarity day against illegal sanctions in Zimbabwe, it was aware that O level and A level examinations were in progress”
Heads of schools , teachers and examination candidates were advised to be present in schools on 25 October 2019.
Ealier on the government had requested school teachers and students to take part in the anti sanctions march.
Government critics are blaming the government for disturbing the learning process due to a political cause. Anti sanctions chorus is encouraged by ZANU PF .
