BREAKING: KCN students protesting in Lilongwe

189

Students at the Kamuzu College of Nursing (KCN), a constituent college of the University of Malawi (Unima) are currently staging demonstrations against the recently announced fee hike in Lilongwe, Malawi24 can confirm.

The students started the demos at around 6 AM.

They blocked the road that leads to the Kamuzu Central Hospital torching tyres and forcing road users to change routes.

It was at this point that armed police officers dispersed them by throwing teargas canisters until the students all returned to their campus.

Malawi24 understands that no arrests have been made as of now.

The demos come in unison with the recent protests that happened at the Chancellor College in Zomba and the Polytechnic in Blantyre.

The University of Malawi (Unima) announced a fee hike in all its constituent colleges.

The fees see Chancellor College as the cheapest with its mature students paying K900,000. The Polytechnic comes next with a fee of K950,000.

Mature students studying at Kamuzu College of Nursing will be required to pay K1,000,000 while those at the College of Medicine will be asked to pay K1,400,000.

The students want the Council to revise this decision.

However the council has indicated it will not rescind this decision.

  35. Muthalika has failed us in Education and Justice in all his political career. As a minister of Education we had the same challenges and as a minister of Justice he introduced those undemocratic laws hence I am not surprised that we’re in these challenges once more, history is repeating it self here. He can be a good leader only if he can put in rightful people Ministerial positions not those greedy politicians like Kaliati, Chaponda, Mussa, Kalilani and Nankhumwa.

  36. I think this shows how stupid this Peter is. When will he address these university problems? Kumangodalira apolisi kuti athane ndi anao. Apolisi nanu kusowa nchito eti?

  40. Dear Mr President. The police brutality against students is not a solution. But face, address and interveen the problem. Its not about party Mcp,Udf,Pp or Dpp but this is a serious problem facing our future leaders youth citizen. We cant have a mbuli future nation. Enough is enough, whatever the problem is its time u need to step in. Good luck students fight for yo rights.

  41. iiiiii kod a polisi vuto lanu ndichani?????? kkkkk apolisi bwanji??,,,….wishing you nice demonstrations,kukhumbira ndikanathamanga nawo those ma-demo!

    • @ Andy hope u understand that the police is a goverment security department. Its not a political tool to disturb pple exercising their rights in a peaceful way. The police acts unprofesional even its a peaceful protest. Its time the police commision to tell the political leader that they are not the solution to the protests but the president is the solution to sit and talk with affected pple.
