New dispensation? Menacing riot police raid hostels at NUST after students protest – VIDEO

Watch the moment riot police raid hostels at the National University of Science and Technology (Nust) in Bulawayo after students protested against the failure by lecturers to pitch up for duty over the past four weeks.

Riot police fired teargas and used water cannons to disperse hundreds of students who braved the cold and rainy weather and barricaded Gwanda-Beitbridge Road.

Riot police arrived six hours after protests erupted, but students sat on the road and refused to leave. Police then used water cannons to disperse the protesting students.
