University ups security after alleged army attack

Midlands State University in Gweru has intensified security at its campuses following an attack on students at the main campus by soldiers last month, reports New Zimbabwe.com.

On the evening of 25 March suspected soldiers went on a rampage, beating up students near Senga Training Centre outside the Midlands State University main campus.

While Zimbabwe National Students' Union Secretary General Makomborero Haruzivishe condemned the attack, army spokesperson Colonel Alphios Makotore distanced soldiers from the attack and blamed illegal gold panners in the Midlands capital whom he claimed masqueraded as army personnel.
