THE Chinese government through Zimbabwe’s Ministry of Higher Education offered local students scholarships to pursue their studies in China.
The agreement is that the Chinese government would pay for the tuition fees whilst the Zimbabwe government would cater for the welfare of the students.
However, the million dollar question is whether the responsible authorities are aware that some students who went to China some 10 months ago have not yet received any grants for their upkeep.
They have since exhausted whatever meager resources they brought from home and are languishing in a foreign land.
A situation like this becomes unfair to us relatives as we are now struggling to assist them. We appeal to the Ministry of Higher Education, Ministry of Foreign Affairs as well as the Finance Minister to act quickly to alleviate the plight of these students.
