University of Zimbabwe students engaged in protests after the institution decided to increase fees on Monday.

A number of students have so far been arrested and others appeared in court.

The university increased tuition from $50 000 to around $300 000 and $500 000 for undergraduate students. Master’s Degree programs would require around $1 000 000.

The students led by the President of the Student’s Representative Council (SRC), Allan Chipoyi, who confirmed the arrests, held protests on campus threatening to boycott classes until the fees were reduced back to last semester levels.
