Children find it difficult to learn a new language and adjust to different education systems.

Children find it difficult to learn a new language and adjust to different education systems.

Thousands of children, who migrate to various countries with their parents, find it difficult to adjust to new environments after leaving Zimbabwe.

Some parents, who spoke to Studio 7, said their children find it difficult to learn a new language and adjust to different education systems, among other issues.

For perspective on this issue, we speak to Dumaphi Mema, president of the Association of Zimbabweans Based Abroad.
In a related development, social media is on fire over the arrest of a local editor of a state-controlled newspaper.

Journalists this week took to social media to condemn the arrest of Edmund Kudzayi who faces possible terrorism charges.

They also deplored the manhunt for Zimbabwe independent editor, Dumisani Muleya, and the suspicious burglary that took place at the house of Chronicle editor, Mduduzi Mathuthu.

The one response that caught our attention was that of former Sunday News editor, Methuseli Moyo, who wrote on Facebook that “it is more dangerous to be an editor than to be a soldier in Zimbabwe.”
