Scary Headmasters

In a follow up to my last Zim post, the schools are no longer just being closed, but some of the teachers are being arrested.


Police in Zimbabwe have detained several head teachers after the recent closure of 45 private schools.

The teachers were arrested during overnight raids across the country, including in the capital, Harare, and the second city, Bulawayo.

Police were deployed to the schools on Tuesday to prevent them re-opening for the new term in a row over fee hikes.


Predictably, Mugabe's government is blaming the arrests, the closures, and the demands for lowered fees on racism. And, again, instead of solving the problems in the public schools and the economy, Mugabe is simply finding the most convenient scapegoat possible.

It's far easier to continue to work at fragmenting the country than it is to actually fix any of its problems.

Read the rest.
