Many students do not see the value of school. A jC driver working in the Judiciary Dept or an MP with MSCE earns more than a graduate with Masters degree! A driver is parastal body such as Escom or Water Board earns more than a graduate with Masters degree or a medical doctor.
What is the point of going to University and be tourtured for over 7 yrs and be humiliated by a Form 4 driver! It simply does not make any sense.

The youth of today, when will you learn to be focused. Even if someone somewhere must have provoked you but my question is, is this the way to react? At the end of the day, you are losers. You can’t attend classes at all. Two wrongs don’t make a right guys. Shame on you.

Umayamba wanena chatsitsa dzaye ndiye nkumati njobvu yathyoka mnyanga. What began the rioting? Definitely its not the absconding students. There is something deeper
than what is reported here.

Be sober and investigate A polisi. You will appreciate very well. You have been told something that does not sound correct according to Association of Quota System Dishonest Haters
