He went on to highlight the importance of participating in elections. Nevertheless, he openly stated that experience has revealed that some intellectual people take the election event for granted.
On September the 4th, our nation will come together to elect a leader that will stand for our rights as citizens, students, employees and employers. As you all know, we are living in a democracy. So, voting is our right, the opportunity for us to contribute to the political process.

All things considered, Prof. Dr MUNYAMASOKO thanked the visitors and called it a day.
