Police have arrested Chancellor College Students Union president James Ayuba Sylvester following the protests the students conducted over government’s decision to hike fees.

Police stormed the college and arrested students.

Police stormed the college and arrested students.

Sylvester has been arrested together with University of Malawi Students Union (UMSU) vice president Godfrey Pumbwa and the college’s UMSU representative Fiskan Nkhoma.

According to a source, the three are facing charges of inciting violence. The latest round of arrests brings the number of students in custody over the demonstrations to 13.

But there are fears that more students will be arrested for their involvement in the protests which culminated in running battles between the police and the students on Tuesday.

College management has since closed the institution indefinitely and the students were told to leave the campus by 4pm on Tuesday.

  1. They mustn’t come out, because they made every big Mistakes. They were even biting up the innocent people, cars,shops and even the old people, what’s that ? Of cause, school fees is higher than B4 , but they were not supposed to do like that, it’s every bad image in Malawi. Let them enjoy the Prison, until they get note that they made something Wrong.

  9. 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.

  17. Thats Maliwian Police Full Of Blind Royalty! I Pray Nothing Harmful Hapen To The President Ayuba, As A Second To Chasowa, Your Hands Will Be The Ocean Of Blood!

  18. Palibe cholakwika kukweza fee ku sukulu za ukachenjedezi. Koma bvuto abale athu ali kumenekowa amayiwala kuti maphunziro si awulere nawoso akuyenera kulipira.. Tonse tikumva kuwawa ndi misonkho basi fees ikwere iwo abazichedwesa with their useless demostrations

  19. They think arresting him they have arrested the minds of the students. They are wrong and on which grounds have they arrested him for??For representing and expressing the student’s Anger?Gone are the days. of yes Bwana this is new era #Fees must fall.

  20. I saw it coming, I can even see Poly and the rest joining but is arresting solving the matters??? I don’t think so. INVANI KULIRA KWAWO SOME OF THEM ARE YOUR KIDS. OR IS IT THAT YOU WANT TO DEPRIVE THE POOR FROM GETTING EDUCATION??? THEN YOU COULD HAVE JUST SAID ALL THE POORS SHOULD BE

  21. Kkkkk,mwana osamvera kholo Bible lidat afe ndithu kaya zako idzo chanco ndikusamvera boma kwa koko,ukuyesa ngat waphuzira kufika okulamulirayo president shame on u

  22. DOBA: ‘How much were you paying at CDSS?’ STUDENT: ‘K15,000 per year.’ DOBA: ‘Here at CHANCO you will pay K400,000 per year.

  23. ayuba we are behind u our president.i follow chanco day in&day out!anything that chanco does is always successful&we are going to succeed in one way or the other!we are owez the best!

  24. Am a Dpp supporter but on this issue am supporting the students.govt pls u must consult and consider the poor that fees hike is just too much.listen out the cries of the students and the poor mass atlarge

  25. Why arresting him? Go and arrest all students at the college. Being a president does not mean he is the one who incited demos and him alone can not control the crowd. A ploice inu mugwetsa nazo boma la mbuyanu.

  26. The hike is not reasonable,mostly for mature entry, policy makers full of greedy, the president a law proffesor himself busy pleasing foreign policies. Indeed Other fights are not worthy to fight

  27. mr president.,you are the chancellor,why are u quiet.? Rescue our children and parents.You went to Ethiopia to get a certificate,parents paid for your trip.Disband malata/cement subsidy and subsidize university education.You as chancellor you let Chanco closed,you dont have a better solution ?You as president and chancellor students Riots under you watch,Sure ? The welfare of our children is your responsibility.

  36. They have created a story to tell his children and grandchildren how he fought for poor students. A hero who will take them to the police cell to show how he suffered for the cause.
    Heros indeed come by actions . They are made and not born
