Bunda College principal professor Moses Kwapata vows to remain in office and not bow down to ‘student’s pressure’.
The college students have been boycotting classes, pressing for the immediate resignation of Kwapata who they accuse of failing to effectively run the affairs of the college.
They students also demand a written explanation regarding the delinking process of Bunda from the University of Malawi (Unima).
But Kwapata has put his foot down, saying “I am not going anywhere because I have done nothing wrong as far as am concerned.”
He also advised the students to use proper channels to address the concerns saying on their own they have no grounds to force him to resign.
“If they have issues with me they should refer them to the council,” he said, explaining that only the Council can determine his fate.
Chairperson of the Council of the Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (Luanar) professor Zac Kasomekera has also said Kwapata will be investigated for maladministration allegations levelled against him.
Kasomekera said part of the investigation will be to establish if Kwapata defaulted on his contract by getting more than what is stipulated in it as the students claim.
The council closed the college on Wednesday following disturbances at the college and Police, acting on instructions from Luanar, dispersed the students using teargas.
The students on Thursday obtained a court injunction against Luanar’s order to close the campus but at the time the court relief was being issued, most students had already left campus.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
