University of Malawi council has postponed the opening of Polytechnic after students obtained an injuction restraining the university from effectiving a fee hike.
The Polytechnic was supposed to open on October 3 for the first year students and October 10 for continuing students.
A statement from the University of Malawi spokesperson Peter Mitunda said the postpoment follows the court injuction the students took against the council.
The council raised the fees by K100000 but the students want to pay old fees of K75,000 for generic and K250000 for mature entry.
President of Polytechnic Students Union Frank Mchupuka said the union officials will be meeting their lawyers on the issue.
However, Mchupuka accused the university council of standing on the way when solutions to problems are about to be found.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
