ZINASU Media Release: Statement on the suspected food poisoned Saint Philips students

On Monday fifty-five Saint Philips Magwenya high school students were admitted to hospital suffering from severe diarhorea.Reports from medical experts who attended to some of the students are pointing towards suspected food poisoning.

Saint Philips Magwenya a high school in Guruve, Mashonaland Central is trapped in a battle between Archbishop Kunonga’s Anglican faction and the local council which is in cahoots with the Ministry of Education district offices with the blessings of the parents. The wrangle which is said to have reached its zenith when the embattled archbishop sent a gang of ZANU-Pf thugs believed to be from Harare to deal with Isaac Hore the headmaster. The thugs confisticated all the keys including the keys to Hore’s house. Upon seizure of the keys the Kunonga inspired gang erected one Muza an ordinary teacher to the position of headmaster and Hore was given an ultimatum of a month to leave the school.

However two weeks under the new administration standards begun to fall with the diet changing towards negativity. In response the district education offices sent a team to investigate the state of the institution. In its report the team found students living in exceptionally filthy conditions with toilets being cleaned without disinfectants.

On Saturday the 30th of May heavily armed police stopped parents who had come for visiting from convening a meeting with the Hore whom they declared was still their headmaster. Upon being denied the meeting some parents promptly took their children for better schools.

ZINASU denounces this typical land invasions evil interference by the so called archbishop whose agenda can only be to extend a retrogressive ZANU-Pf agenda.ZINASU also castigates the move which has left innocent young souls in agony hence ZINASU demands Kunonga should remove his kleptomaniac hands from the school and let professionalism not politics govern the school. We are therefore calling for the Ministry of Education Arts Sports and Culture to establish a commission of inquiry to instigate the cause of illness and subsequently bring those responsible to book.

ZINASU wishes the sick students a quick recovery.
