University Hires Bouncers to bar students who are failing to pay fees


A university in Zimbabwe has hired bouncers to stop students who have not paid fees from attending lectures.Lupane State University is taking the drastic measure to force payments from students. The university first installed swiping machines where students who have not paid at least $350 were denied entry.

After realising that students were forcing their entry into the higher learning institution, bouncers had to be employed to bar them from attending lectures.

Lecturers are also no longer taking assignments from students who have not registered.A second year accounting student who is expected to pay $500 for fees said students are being denied access and payment plans without having paid the stipulated $350.

Another student said at the Raylton campus, bouncers are in place to police students who failed to register.

“There are bouncers at our campus and they are actively doing their job because we cannot attend lecturers. The university is aware that the economy is not in good shape but they are demanding that we pay large sums of money. For us to get the payment plan, they should at least demand that we pay half of our fees. Lecturers are also refusing to take our assignments, they are demanding that we produce our registration slips,” said the student.
