College of Medicine students against fee hike.

Students from College of Medicine (CoM) a constituent college of University of Malawi (UNIMA) have disclosed that they are next to be teargased as they plan to demonstrate against fees hike.

Being under one name, Unima students from CoM have disclosed that they are to take action in solidarity with other colleges.

Speaking in an interview with Malawi24, University of Malawi Students Union (UMSU) vice president Godfrey Pumbwa said CoM students are to hold the demonstrations soon.

“They will start very soon even maybe before going to school. However, I cannot specifically say that they will demonstrate but they have confirmed that a certain action will be taken to show their fury on the same,” said Pumbwa.

Unima students have been demonstrating against fees hike arguing that the adjustment has come when Malawians are sailing on seas of financial woes.

Godfrey Pumbwa confirmed of the looming demo.

The student demonstrations have been seen spreading like a disease with Chancellor College (Chanco) taking the ignition role to the protests against fees adjustment.

On Friday, Polytechnic students defied armed police officers who began patrolling the campus as early as 5am when they were notified about the protest in the evening.

Over 14 students were arrested as authorities claimed that the demonstrations were illegal saying that the students were not allowed to protest.

Two days after the Polytechnic fracas, students from Kamuzu College of Nursing could not hide their anger as they blocked the main road to the campus and Kamuzu Central Hospital with burning tyres on Monday to show their dissatisfaction with Unima council’s decision to adjust fees.

But despite the students’ anger, the council maintains that it will not to give in to the students’ demand on the fees hike matter.

    • Most of the students that go to public universities come from Mission schools and private secondary schools. In secondary school, annual fees ranges from 450,000MK to 600,000MK. Let gvt help the few poor students with loans. Otherwise demos do not reflect the true status of these kids. 400,000MK is less than annual secondary school fees.
