Students from Kamuzu College of Nursing (KCN) have given President Peter Mutharika five days to make a decision on the recent University of Malawi fees hike, Malawi24 can confirm.

Kamuzu College of Nursing (KCN)

Kamuzu College of Nursing students have sent the President a petition.

The students made the demand after conducting a peaceful demonstration at the end of which they presented a petition to the District Commissioner for Blantyre.

In the petition, the students have given President Peter Mutharika five days to react on the issue saying the president has not spoken anything on the hike since the fees hike was announced by the university council.

The nursing students said Mutharika has the power to order the university council to reverse its decision.

“We want the president to direct the council to immediately stop the decision of raising the school fees to public universities students,” said Gift Banda who is president for Students Union of Kamuzu College of Nursing.

Banda also argued that many students are already struggling to pay the current fees hence they will have a difficult time raising more money for fees.

Peter Mutharika: Asked to act.

“This will make more students to withdraw from the university and this is very pathetic since most of the student can’t afford to pay such fees. “My appeal to the president as the head of state is that he should give the council the stop order not to raise the fees,” said Banda.

By holding the protests, the KCN students joined their fellow students from other public colleges who also held demonstrations last week.

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.

    • So Samuel told all the words of the LORD to the people who asked him for a king. And he said, “This will be the behavior of the king who will reign over you: He will take your sons and appoint them for his own chariots and to be his horsemen, and some will run before his chariots. He will appoint captains over his thousands and captains over his fifties, will set some to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and some to make his weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers, cooks, and bakers. And he will take the best of your fields, your vineyards, and your olive groves, and give them to his servants. He will take a tenth of your grain and your vintage, and give it to his officers and servants. And he will take your male servants, your female servants, your finest young men, and your donkeys, and put them to his work. He will take a tenth of your sheep. And you will be his servants. And you will cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, and the LORD will not hear you in that day.”
