Cholera Break-out Fears at Evelyn Hone Increase

Evelyn HoneAccording to this evening’s Radio Phoenix news, there are reports that eight more Evelyn Hone College students are suffering from severe diarrhea. This follows the death of one student from suspected cholera on Monday.

The eight students are also being suspected to have contracted the water bone disease.
Students at the country’s biggest college in Lusaka have been protesting the death of a first year student 19-year-old Wiseman Mwale since Monday.

Wiseman died of suspected cholera on Monday but college management claimed he had malaria. His roommate, whose name is withheld, says the deceased was given wrong medication after he complained of being unwell on Friday.

College students rioted on Monday following the death of their college and are now boycotting class to demand improved sanitation at the institution.

Minister of Education John Phiri has since directed his permanent secretary to give him a comprehensive report on the Evelyn Hone crisis.
