Bukavu-The Conference of Heads of colleges and universities in the province of South Kivu prohibits students and that staff wear T-shirts, caps, badges and loincloths of political parties in the school compound.

This decision was taken Wednesday, Sept. 21, at a meeting which brought together about forty heads of public and private institutions.

The President of the Conference of Heads of institutions and CEO of the Higher Teaching Institute (PSI) / Bukavu, said that this measure is applied within the institution.

Some flags of political parties displayed at the main entrance of the ISP were torn. Some teachers have been denied access to the institute because of the insignia of political parties displayed on their vehicles.

“Compared to the current context of our country and the fact that we are in a pre-campaign period, we decided that we could prevent rather than to intervene in certain situations,” he says.

He plans to meet with students to explain the meaning of this decision
