University of Zimbabwe Bans Kissing & Sex in Public Places on Campus; Students Scream Outrage



?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????A Zimbabwean University is receiving backlash for banning its students from kissing and having sex in public places on campus.

According to a pamphlet that was passed around the school, any students “caught in any intimate positions” would face disciplinary action, with clause four specifically forbidding “kissing or having sex in public places.” It additionally stated that students living on-site were banned from taking members of the opposite sex to their residences and there was to be no “loitering in dark places outside the sports pavilion or lecture venues”.

The students have the University have been protesting for a few days with outrage at what they call a limitation on their freedom.

While even private schools in Nigeria such as Covenant University, Redeemers University, Babcock University and more have rules like this already implemented into the campus life, there is usually a more liberal lifestyle for students in public universities.

Since this is not a private university, a lot of people are raising their eyebrow at the newly implemented rules.

According to students’ gender representative, Ms Mazikana; as reported by BBC, the ban had less to do with morality and more to do with controlling students who were “not happy about the way they are running the university

What do you think about the ban?

    I think they meant having sax (saxophone) in public – SEX in public had to have been already illegal. As for kissing……in these times of e-bola…..any reduction in saliva transfer is welcome.

    Besides, Comrade Mugabe does not need to see things that will make all the blood he has left rush to btw his legs, so no kissing!
