Protest at ‘Box 2’ leads to shut down:  Zomba Catholic Secondary School alumni condemn ‘shameful’ conduct of students

Management of  Zomba Catholic Secondary School  (Box 2) has closed indefinitely the school following students’  revolt on Monday when they damaged school property.

Box 2: Zomba Catholic Secondary School closed indefinately

The students were  protesting  of the school management’s decision to dismiss a form four student who was allegedly found drunk on campus.

Zomba Police station spokesperson Patricia Supuliano said no student has been arrested following the incident.

But a statement issued by the Alumni of Zomba Catholic Secondary School (AZCSS) condemned the students’ protests and violence, saying the conduct of the students was “shameful.”

AZCSS board secretary Chancy Gondwe urged the school administration to take necessary disciplinary action against the perpetrators of what they call unwarranted protests in line with the school rules and regulations.

“We acknowledge that students have the right to express their grievances on any matter of concern to them.

“The Alumni of the school are disturbed by the reports of unwarranted violence targeted at the school property, fellow students, academic and non-academic staff and the management of the school,” the statement reads in part.
