BREAKING: Villagers join Chanco students against police in Zomba

…as students block US second lady Dr. Jill Biden convoy 

Irked b the noise perhaps villagers around Matawale and Chinamwali  areas in the city of Zomba have joined another grouping of Chancellor College students who are in a cat and rat chase with police officers in the city.

As we reported, the students are protesting against the decision by the University of Malawi (Unima) to raise fees for generic and mature students.

Villagers joined the battles.

Villagers joined the battles.

Some of the students had to run away to villages around the city in fear of being arrested by the police.

But police who followed the students around met the wrath of villagers who claimed to have been disturbed and therefore rallied behind the law enforcers in the running battles.

The demos started yesterday.

As this post was made, the students blocked the way for a convoy that was carrying the US Second lady Jill Biden who is on a three day visit in the country.

The college has since been closed.

  2. 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.

  23. Everytime i read about these senseless fees hikes happening in Malawi i feel really bad for my Nation. Everywhere in the world students are fighting for zero fees in all institutions of learning and to the contrary in Malawi they are raising up the fees rediculously.

    This is a real kind of brutality the government displays when it has failed its citizens. The reason why we have too old madalas in most key government positions, who are always sleeping while on duty, is because we have denied our own youth a better education through exhorbitant school fees. Malawi with its current leadership is really in a state of mediocrity….we can nolonger afford to live like foreigners in our own land. VIVA THE REVOLUTION….VIVA MY FELLOW UNIMA STUDENTS…

  24. This has take to de old good days of de late DU CHISIZA Jr On his play called, STOM ON LITADA. DE XOOL FEES IS UP,DE PRIZE OF SUGAR,WATER, TRANSPORT,RENT ALL IS UP BUT MY SALLARIE MY PAY, MY WAGES!!!

  28. One effective way of reducing literacy rate in Malawi is hiking public university fees otherwise by 2020 ndekut Malawi adzakhala ovaya coz we are priotising school as the best way of getting income….chodabwitsa ndichoti 3/4 yama lectures a UNIMA masters degree yawo amakatengera kunja through schoolarships coz kwawo kuno amakanika kudzilipilira okha nde nchifukwa chani akufuna ana anzawo adzivutika? Come on lectures

  29. A Malawi kukula mopepera thus why anthu akuluakulu amene ndi amuna a ndevu zawo akulilira zinthu zotchipa. Remember the Mutharikas are here to teach Malawi on how to rely on our own. Olo anyanyale asayiwale kuti ma lecture zawo akulandira komanso a policewo alandiranso ma allowance. Akanyanyala palibe amene atavutike okha abwereranso koma zotsitsa fees iwalani. Ana a mabwana ndi amene akuyambitsa zisokonezo zimenezo chifukwa iwo akuziwa kuti akapita kwawo akayamba ma private. Shame on Anthu ofuna cheap EDUCATION. fees must be hiked basi

    • Guys ndili ku matawale panopa bt ma students sakupanga bho..imagine kumaswa magalimoto a fans yosalakwa..kulanda madasi poor pipo..osapita ku ptc bwanji..

    • Iweyo unawaona mafana amenewa akamapanga ma demo kuti amaononga katundu wa anthu wamba?? Ndi tizithandizira u savage umenewowo ife? Awakwezere fees ifike pa 1 meter kumene zinazo akapepesere anthu omwe akhala akuonongeredwa katundu at the handa of these students mxiew

    • Am not against you bro but if u say we Malawians are stupid, u can’t call your mum, dad, aunt or ur uncle stupid, I knw for sure all these relatives of yours I have just mentioned are also Malawians that means they are inclusive.

    • Every word that we speak has an impact on our lives, some curses are just self imposed, there are a lot of words that we can express our failure or weakness rather than calling urself stupid. The solution is never to repeat the same mistake that we did to endorse power to these guys. I tell u and believe me speaking these insults or provocative words won’t change anything only a few people have an access to Facebook. So I don’t think this is the right place to express our anger than just doing actions

  34. Infact the issue of fees hike has concerned thousands of people by realizing that more can not afford the family to spend for single child but it would be calm resolution had it been all letters sent by the University of Malawi Student Council(UMSA) was considered it would’nt happen the way it is,now the pilice arrested even some chinamwali dwellers for trial probably they are going to deffend themselves as innocents whilst they mostly not happy with why students are conducting riots.

  35. in this government there is people who are too corrupt the result of it is this fees hiking from no where,,,,,,,dpp must go n fees must fall.

  36. too bad.that means mwana wamphawi saphunzira aphunzire ndi ana anthu olemera ngati tikukanika kulipira ana ku open K10,000 timalipira katatu fees mutchulayo tikwanitsa ine kwangotalika mkabwera makatedi sizoona zimenezi amene amapanga ma decision amenewo okweza fees ana awo saphunzira ku malawi kuno uphunzitsi uja mwayamba kulipilitsaku collage ntchito ya ana amphawife kwatsala ku army mku police koma kuti mutitengeso zaulelezo ayi mwandikwiyitsaso mwamva
