The Midlands State University Student Representative Council (MSU) in partnership with the Zimbabwe Gender Commission conducted a sexual harassment and gender based violence awareness campaign in Gweru on Friday the 28th of April 2017. The purpose of the awareness campaign was to encourage the public to adopt a zero tolerance approach towards sexual harassment and gender based violence not only at MSU but in all communities.
Running under the theme “Sexual Harassment and Gender Based Violence have no place at MSU”, the awareness campaign, the event was headlined by a march from Gweru Town Council which winded up at MSU Main campus.
The participants included SRC President Jorum Mukono alongside volunteers from the City of Gweru who joined the marching crowd in support of the awareness campaign.
Students from various clubs such as the Peer Educators Network, Leos Club and the Toastmasters came in their numbers in support of the campaign as well as to show their willingness to stand as a family in fighting sexual harassment and gender based violence.
