Landlords Demand Rent In US Dollars From MSU Students

The Herald reports Midlands State University (MSU) off-campus students are now being charged monthly rentals in United States dollars by landlords in Senga and Nehosho suburbs in Gweru.

A survey by this publication showed that new accommodation prices now range from US$35 to US$75 per room when sharing. Previously, the students were paying $75 in bond notes or Ecocash per head. A parent Mrs Sharon Ndlovu from Bulawayo confirmed her child who is doing first year at MSU was asked to pay in US dollars.

MSU director of public relations Mrs Mirirai Mawere told The Herald they were aware accommodation was now expensive. She said as a measure to cushion parents, MSU had come up with a database of landlords who charge reasonable prices.
