Chanco students in peaceful protests

University of Malawi’s Chancellor College students are today, Thursday expected to hold peaceful protests in the country’s major cities.

Chanco students want college to be opened

Chancellor College Students Union chair Ayuba James said the protests are aimed at forcing authorities open the oldest college in the country.

The college was supposed to open in January but had prolonged closure after support staff went on strike demanding equal pay with their fellow workers in public universities.

The students representative said the students union has received permission from Zomba and Mzuzu councils to go ahead with the protest march.

“We have not yet heard anything from. Lilongwe and Blantyre city councils. However, the law is very clear on this one.

“We will go ahead with our peaceful matches because we wrote them to notify them of our intention to hold the match, we were not seeking permission after all,” he said.

In Lilongwe, the marchers are gathering at Bwandilo where they will start off, via Area 18 Round About then civic offices and parliament where they will present petitions.

It’s funny to hear that this HE can even fail to appoint someone competent to running the University relieving himself of headache! Four months is a semester or half academic year. This is gross waste of resources in terms of academic hours lost. We are paying staff who are not working, paying utility bills for facilities that are not working, we are delaying current students to finish, in the process also delaying intake of new prospective students. One person should be answerable for this wastage and immediately resign.

I think this DPP government is doing it deliberately so that we do not have additional graduates from our precious universities. They are brutes who do not need competition from university graduates. They want to retain their positions in government institutions on tribal lines without competition from the genius in our universities. They are killing the nation and there is no reason to keep the same government in place for much too long. Senseless government, sssssha!
