Zimbabwe Teacher Want School Declared “Peace Zone” Ahead of Elections!

Teachers want schools declared “peace zones” ahead of the coming elections.
So the Teachers have given up hope of a free and fair election free of the scourge of violence and are therefore looking for a compromise solution: let the rest of the country be engulfed in the same orgy of violence as in 2008 but make sure school are left as islands of peace and tranquility. Yes I can just imagine Chipangano thugs on a war path having to give up the chase as soon as their victim enters the sanctuary of school. Erect an electric fence or laser guns to zapping up any Zanu PF thugs who dares cross into the school zone. What a joke!
Takavafira Zhou and the Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe of which he is the President are behind this call. Mr Zhou told SW Radio Africa that the real problem lies in the unity government’s failure make any real changes (to end the culture of violence) since 2008. Still that is hardly cause to push the panic button and to propose a down right stupid solution!
