Mzuni VC Ridley: Advises the students to behave

Mzuni suspended about nine hundred government sponsored students last December – about a week before sitting their end of semester examinations – for causing mayhem over “insufficient meal allowances.”

The students, who sought legal intervention, just sat their examinations and will have to wait until the middle of the just began semester to have their results.

Addressing the students Friday, Ridley disclosed that management was “disappointed” with students’ behaviour last semester.

He also said that he was equally “disappointed” that none of the students had apologized to management for the rowdy behaviour.

Ridley said the institution will no more condone indiscipline.

And as part of registration, students have signed a ‘Supplementary Student Declaration’ committing them to “abide by the rules and regulations as stipulated in the Students Information Handbook.”

Kenneth Gama, a third year education student, said their suspension was a “lesson for a lifetime.”

He said it was important that “we stick to the rules of the game.”

Twelve students have since been punched with a two year suspension and are said to be seeking legal action to register for the semester.
