« Compliance with a directive to reduce fees for students on attachment for a period of 12 months ». This is the announcement made by the government of Zimbabwe in March this year. The same government warned those who are not abiding by the order that they will be facing charges for insubordination because the order was not definable if it is public university and college.
But voices from teacher training colleges arose, reporting that they are refusing to abide by the State directive. For information, students on attachment will only pay 60 percent of the fees. This reduction will allow them to meet accommodation, learning facilities and transport costs because government have noted that most companies do not pays students on attachments allowances to enable them meet the costs.
