Press Statement on Douglas Mwonzora’s derogatory utterances on polytechnics.
August 11th, 2021
This herald serves to denounce and regret the callous and unrespectable behavior of
segregation and looking down upon polytechnic institutions by the leader of the puppet
MDC-T, Mr. Douglas Togarasei Mwonzora.
On August 8, 2021, responding to constructive criticism by Dr. Pedzisai Ruhanya, Mr.
Mwonzora on his Twitter handle @DMwonzora revealed his barbaric behavior by writing
the following quoted message, “Babamunini ndosaka kuUniversity kuchinzi kunoda
kungoendawo kechi One.
Kwete via Morogoro naChingwenya. Poly yakakukwadzai
Babamunini,” which is derogatory as it is offensive and insulting on polytechnics.
It is a matter of regret and pernicious that a whole senator can make those disgusting
utterances .This clearly spells a short or no exhibition of both the intrinsic and extrinsic
behaviors that makes up leadership. Mr. Mwonzora has disrespected the academic fraternity
of our country by marking an inexistent demarcation between polytechnics and universities.
This calls for the academia and the entire populace of our country to distinguish sanity
exhibited by our leaders and imbecility showcased by those who masquerade to be our
We would like to unequivocally make it clear with all due respect and without any aorta of
ambiguity that the only difference between all of the institutions we have in Zimbabwe is
their physical addresses not ranks of superiority. For Zimbabwe to be prosperous, leaders
should have a uniting tongue.
For and on behalf of MDC Alliance Students’ Council
