In a newly revised code of conduct to tame African sex, authorities at the University of Zimbabwe released a statement on two weeks ago that any students "caught in any intimate position such as kissing or having sex in public places" would be punished.
The university also barred students staying on campus from bringing opposite sex member to their hostels and "loitering in dark places outside the sports pavilion or lecture venues."
The Zimbabwe students leader and union on is not happy with the new code of conduct. Gilbert Mutubuki, leader of the union said students would resist the rules that is now fully implemented
"We are against these rules which we view as archaic, repressive and evil," Mutubuki, president of the Zimbabwe National Students Union (ZINASSU) told AFP.
"We are urging students to resist the rules. These rules reduce the university to a primary school. The authorities need to be reminded that this is an institute for adults who are mature."
He said the rules, which also bar students from accommodating non-resident colleagues, were meant to curtail students' right to associate. Osaseye believes this is good news to African universities and opposite students can always meet in public areas and libraries. While other African Universities already have this in place, more will release statements soon.
