Swipe cards for school fees

HARARE - Primary and Secondary Education minister Lazarus Dokora has instructed schools to set up point-of-sale swipe machines to allow parents to pay fees using debit cards.

This could bring brief relief to parents struggling to pay fees amid crippling cash shortages.

Responding to a question by Mount Darwin Senator Alice Chimbudzi on what government policy is in terms of schools getting swipe machines, Dokora said he was “facing challenges with the bursars who receipt money in schools but now each and every school should have a swipe machine.”

“Having a swipe machine does not require one to have Zesa but as long as there is network, that is what enables one to make payment. So, we instructed that all schools should make an effort to get swipe machines.

“We also had discussions with the reserve bank and the minister of Finance and Economic Development, ... Chinamasa and we agreed that we will be able to get these machines in batches and these will be distributed in schools to ensure that parents are able to pay their fees,” Dokora said.
