Ayuba: Baseless charges

Ayuba: Baseless charges

Chancellor College Students Union president Silvyster Ayuba James said the entire leadership has been summoned to be on campus on Monday.

He said the management has levelled two charges against the students union; that of interferring with administration of Chancellor College and unlawful assembly.

“These are baseless charges, politically motivated, I find the charges unjustified,” said the student lawyer.

The University of Malawi Students leadership meets tomorrow to decide on whether to accept President Peter Mutharika’s K50000 college fees cut.

Some students say the University’s decision to hike the fees from K275000 per year to K400000 per year is unjustified taking into the poor state of the economy bit critics of the Fees Must Fall campaign argue the University of Malawi is full of students from the elite and rich families who went to very expensive secopndary schools where their parents paid as much as K500000 per term.

Now instead of them borrowing a leaf from Kamuzu’s archive they want to turn public universities which are meant for social service and have to be run as not for profit, they want to start generating profit from it just like a private university!! Chonsecho chifukwa akuthawa ntchito yomwe Boma liyenera kugwira!! Seriously if… Read more »
Possible disciplinary action on the student leaders may be appropriate or not: we are not privy to the bylaws being invoked here. The main issue, in my personal view, is that these student leaders have failed their student union membership, wholesale. What the …! Ayuba and co have waffled, through and through, on this issue since their meeting with the government. It’s like Ayuba and co were sucker punched; and yet they went in the meeting well prepared! So, just accept what they agreed to in the meeting; and move on to perhaps fight another day. Otherwise, who would ever… Read more »
