Chipata Trades Students Riot

Angry students at Chipata Trades Training Institute have rioted destroying the administration block, a vehicle and vice-principal’s house in protest against some school rules.

Chipata Trades Training Institute principal Miriam Mwale told journalists that the students ran amok in the early hours of Monday because they wanted to have their own rules and terms.

Mwale said management was very saddened with the behaviour of the students.

She said there was no society which had no rules.

Mwale said police were investigating the matter.

But the students at the institute said they were not happy with the way the vice principal was demanding for both tuition and boarding fees.

By press time some police officers had rushed to the institute to check what was obtaining on the ground.

    The students forget that this is the same equipment and infrastructure that they are destroying is the same which will assist the running of the institution when they resume classes. There should be a better way to air your grievances.

    Riot! Ishhh! You are in trouble. Now your school fees will go up because you will pay for structures and vehicle your smashed. If you destroyed the vice principal’s property you shall pay for that as well. I tell you what? You don’t know how to air your concerns.

    Let all stakeholders work quickly to clean the institute by removing the bad seed/ students. There better ways of resolving differences.

    They didn’t pay fees. They are told to pay. Instead they smash windows they never paid for. yaba!!! Are they after learning these students or they want to use riot as an excuse for exit.

    Displacement syndrome. You didn’t pay and after that you destroy your school, then you are mad. I don’t know why students wage war on things not connected their problems. Now you have created another problem so have to pay double. Foolish students just like UNZA. No mercy for trouble seekers.

    Most of you don’t know what really happens in these trade schools. Go to Mansa Trades where a principal has personalised the school as though it is his,……. I end there…. There is a mess there.

    Rioting is not a solution to solve a problem ‘ it’s destroys property and Leads to extra cost in order to replace the vandalised property. My brethren, the best approach to undertake was to discuss with the vice principal through your union representative.
