Update: Chanco students, Police in cat and rat chase


…Chanco faces closure 

Armed police officers have dispersed rioting students at the Chancellor College in Zomba.

The students were protesting against the stand by the University council not to rescind the decision of fees hike for both generic and mature students which was announced a few weeks ago.

After a general assembly around noon today, the students agreed to hold protests against the fee hike and it was all when the demos began.


Chanco could be closed.

But irate students who blocked the road that leads to the college from Zomba town reportedly broke the vehicle belonging to the dean of students.

Police from Zomba police rushed to the college where the have since dispersed the rioting students by throwing teargas canisters.

Meanwhile the law enforcers have returned to their base where they are feared to pick more officers to see to it that there is calm at the university.

Reports that Malawi24 has now indicate that there is a directive from management that the college be closed.

The students say they will keep protesting until the fees hike decision is rescinded.

But the University Council has maintained it will not revisit the decision saying the students did not have ‘convincing’ arguments in their call.




  1. Hello I’m Samuel Okizou by name, I’m giving a testimony about Dr.Sule the great Herbalist, he has the cure to all manner of diseases, he cured my HIV disease, though I went through different website I saw different testimonies about different herbalists, I was like: “Many people have the HIV cure why are people still suffering from it?” I thought of it, then I contact Dr.Sule via email, I didn’t believe him that much, I just wanted to give him a try, he replied my mail and Needed some Information about me, then I sent them to him, he prepared the CURE and sent it to me via UPS courier service, they told me that it will take 3-4 days before I’ll get the parcel, 3 days later I received the package and I started taking the medicine as prescribed by him, after 7 days of taking the medicine I went for check-up, I was tested HIV NEGATIVE… IF YOU ARE SERIOUS YOU WILL BE CURED!!! contact Dr Sule on whats-app +2348162447651

  11. That is a problem in Malawi. A citizen has a right to protest if he/she feels that her rights a violated in a peaceful way. But the problem is the masage goes to official who are deaf. That make pple angry and protest in a violance way like South Africans. Even if they protest in a peaceful way goverment just arrest them anywere. Come campaign for elections they promise haven and earth. But now they dont want to hear anyone apart 4rm their way.
