Chiumia: Gave Luanar an ok to use the institute

This follows violent protests from some athletes and residents who live in surrounding areas.

Christopher Mbukwa, spokesperson for the ministry of Sports and Culture confirmed the university is no longer interested to rent part of the facility.

“We have not yet met but obviously we will have to meet, we will contact them because we signed a memorandum of understanding,” said Mbukwa.

He said the ministry is also following all proper channels to meet local leaders who live around the institute to discuss the matter.

“We will meet the people who live around the institute, we will meet their leaders and discuss this matter,” he said.

Local residents and athletes made violent protests against the idea by the ministry to rent out part of the facility to Luanar.

Efforts by minister of Sports and Culture Grace Chiumia to mediate the matter proved futile as the athletes and local residents angrily chased away the students.

Luanar officials refused to comment on the matter.
