The students were demonstrating against the fee hike and the college’s decision to turn away students for non-payment of fees.

Students said fees ranging from between $38200 for campus students and $21100 for day scholars was beyond their reach and were planning to march to Higher Education minister Professor Amon Murwira’s offices to register their concern.
