Riotous UNZA Students Stripped of Bursary Support

The Ministry of Higher Education has moved swiftly to withdraw bursaries for five students believed to be master minders of the riot last week after a 10-minute power outage.

Higher Education Minister Professor Nkandu Luo said that university students would be made to pay for the damage caused to some vehicles.

She named the students as Mischeck Kakonda popularly known as Neighbors, Richard Malambo whose moniker is Buffalo, Kellys Chikelwa also known as Chilepule Baby, Muyendwa who is known as Pamukanjo and Muyangwa Lifuke known among students as Mafiki.

The above named Students will not be supported and she has assured that all their appeals will not be entertained by UNZA Management.

“There are a lot of children out there seeking education who are not being assisted and I would want those students to benefit. And I want to commend UNZA Management for effecting suspension Letters to the named Students,” said Luo.

Two other Students at UNZA are being investigated according to Professor Nkandu Luo, to ascertain their involvement in what she says was a premeditated demonstration.

Professor Luo said that a woman with a sick child was roughed up in the riot and had her car and several others damaged, a situation she labelled as barbaric not befitting university students.

“As Minister of Higher Education, I take this opportunity to apology to the woman, who had a sick child on the material day including all other citizens caught up in the riot,” she said.

Professor Luo has toed a hard-line stance on dealing with unruly behaviour of some UNZA students with the union suspended after having identified it as a major source of tension in campus.

    I like the nick names especially neighbours and Buffalo,Chilepule baby maybe a cassanova playboy hence not suited to the academic or rough side life of a monk.

    Did they do that for better or worse their is a reason behind that a university student can not do a thing without thinking unless that bursary is given to useless students the minister must think twice on this insure don’t worry guys Jesus suffered for us to be better and you are suffering for someone to be better. When you sim to loss God opens another way for you

    My parents died when I was three months in my mothers womb, I have 11 brothers and all of them are handicapped, we eat half a meal per day,
    am the only person who got 11 points after failing grade 7 eight times. These are the lies you tell when applying for a bursary, they assist you then you start misbehaving and even review where your parents have been hiding. Fools

    The government must learn to scrutinize students before giving them a hand.

    Even if a child is a Mafia(problem) him/she will never be rejected by his/her parents. He/she may misbehave but still be loved by the parents.

    The fact that a son/daughter misbehaved it doesn’t disapprove him/her of being a son of his/her parents.

    Sonship(ubwana) tabumpwa.

    A son will always remain a son nor matter how bad he/she misbehaves.

    The only role a real parent should play is to chasten his/her child and not to deniey his/her child.

  17. mwana wa ?

    More freedom more problems

  18. Razor

    Yes they deserve this. Even if the students have grievances they should not take it out on the innocent public.

  19. David

    Self control. And understanding of situations is important. Because things may not be in a way u want them to be. Please Mr chilepule baby behave. Everywhere u go there are rules and regulations.

    Guys, (referring to all the culprit’s of the riot) its an honour to be accepted at the university of Zambia, most of us we pray and wish everyday that we can be accepted there, u guys who are there are luck but u forget what u went there for once you are accepted there, U start following wrong ideals from wrong people and forget your goals, remember you and your parents struggled so that u can be accepted now you will be expelled imagine how your parents will feel? Violence does not bring any good but only bad, if there is any issue, try to solve it through a mutual discussion like civilised people please.
