The disagreements started after 7 minutes of this video
There was commotion at a press conference organised by Youth Advocacy for Reform and Democracy leader Mr Temba Mliswa after some student leaders stormed the venue and accused him of hijacking the student movement in the country.

This was after Mr Mliswa convened a press conference to denounce Zimbabwe Congress of Students Union for dabbling in party politics particularly Zanu-PF under a topic “The ongoing Students’ Union saga.”
During the press conference, some handpicked YARD members, claiming to be Zicosu members, accused the student movement of deviating from its constitution to dabble in Zanu-PF politics.

Zimbabwe Congress of Students Union led by Tonderai Chidawa and treasurer Obey Mashanda, then interjected, asking Mr Mliswa on what basis he was speaking about student activism when he was not one.

An argument ensued lasting 10 minutes as Mr Mliswa and Zicosu executive members exchanged words.
There were chaotic scenes of shoving and pushing between Zicosu executive members and youths aligned to Mr Mliswa before normalcy returned.
