Schools not closing for 21st Feb movement celebrations – Dokora

Zimbabwe’s minister of education Dr Lazarus Dokora has asked the public to ignore a ‘directive’ claiming that schools in Matabeleland and Masvingo would close on Thursday and Friday for President Robert Mugabe’s birthday celebrations.

Speaking to Farai Mwakutuya on ZiFM Stereo’s Head On on Wednesday evening he put it down to social media mischief.

Schools will be open tomorrow [Thursday] and Friday as usual.

A message had done the rounds claiming the contrary and gone wild on social media.
