CBU Set To Re-Open

CBUFinally Copperbelt University students will get back to their school routine after the more than two months closure.

The students were scheduled to re-open last week but Higher Education Minister Michael Kaingu halted the process saying that there were still some conditions yet to be met.

Kaingu said that the institution must exhaust the disciplinary process and flush out the alleged ring leaders of the riots that took place in February leading to the closure of the school.

At CBU the disciplinary process has seen 14 students expelled over the riots.

Meanwhile when the University of Zambia re-opens next week students will be expected to pay K225 for the damage caused during the riot with an additional K80 for the new identity cards.

Ironically the students are charged caution fee on their annual payments but Kaingu has directed that they pay before being re-admitted to campus.

UNZA has made the first step toward re-opening with distance students commencing their programme that paves the way for regular students to open on April 24
