UNZA Throws Parallel Students in the Cold

The University of Zambia has dumped parallel students midway through their academic journey by either arbitrarily scrapping off the program or incorporating learners into the regular stream.

Parallel stream is a program designed for students who are in employment and are accommodated through evening classes.

But University of Zambia management has discontinued the program midway with students given the option to join the morning classes or join the distance stream that takes a longer period to continue.

Management has not paid the lecturers in the parallel stream for the last 12 months forcing them to refuse to conduct lessons for the 2018 academic year.

Parallel students are self-paying learners forking out an average of K26, 000 per academic year.

Some students that cannot fit in the morning program have been forced to withdraw from their studies.

    To get an idea of how confused Zed is, just look at UNZA the supposedly highest institution of learning.

    Great economic and financial management policies by one Alexander Chikwanda has led to this. But most people will not lay the blame at his doorstep. As The Post used to ask, why?
