In pictures: Malawi Police disperse rioting KCN Students

42

Alert police officers rushed to the Kamuzu College of Nursing (KCN), Lilongwe Campus where they used teargas to disperse the students who were protesting against the recent University of Malawi fee hike.

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 b throwing teargas canisters until the students all returned to their campus.

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.
