Act in two weeks or we will meet in the streets – students warn Mutharika

326

Malawi University students that stormed Parliament today have threatened that they will take to the streets after two weeks if government does not adhere to their demands.

Malawi public protests

Students to Mutharika: “We will meet in the streets!”

In a dramatic presentation of their complaints to Parliament, the students challenged that there is a need for the current allocation to the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) to be doubled so that the students can access loans for their education.

The students are demanding that government increases the loan allocation from K1.5 billion to K3 billion arguing that the current allocation is too little to cater for the student population.

“We have information that out of 3,000 students from the Polytechnic who applied for the loan, only 96 students have been given the loan,” said a student from the Polytechnic Davies Jiva after submitting the petition.

The students have challenged that if their demands are not adhered to then they will take to the streets and stir trouble.

Recently, students protested in South Africa in the popularised Fees must fall campaign that was big and had an impact.

  1. Education is said to be a human right not as it is seen today as aprevillage ,and in my vie to commercialise it will promote socialism ,,i thank you

  3. Government has gone into the hands of dogs. Give loans to the students.

    Dunderheads are complaining as if these monies are bursaries or grants, be reminded that these are loans. They will be repaid with interest.

    The government should just learn from other countries how they employ the strategy for practical recovery.

    Those who argue against, their thinking are like a chicken whose head has just been suddenly cut off and run brainless.
