Robbers hit Poly, students protest violently: Malawi Police spray tear gas

Polytechnic students in Blantyre on Tuesday went into the streets, disturbing traffic as they protested against insecurity at the constituent college of the University of Malawi.

Poly students react

This follows last night’s robbery of students’ property on campus which include laptops, mobile phones, clothes among others.

Police say they are still hunting for the suspected robbers but angry students said this points to the lack of security at the college.

Dean of students Luciano Ndalama said management of the college are looking into the issue seriously, saying drastic measures will soon be taken to improve the security situation at the institution.

I would blame all the stakeholders here 1. Students, its either the PSU has failed to manage their folks, like other comments have pointed out, they are supposed to use the right channel, PSU and poly Management, and not road users who are (investors, future employers, their parents who are paying for the fees) 2. poly Management; this aint the 1st time students complained, someone is not doing their job 3. Police, should i conclude that at police college they are only trained on the use of tear gas as a way of displacing people doing demostrations? last time they… Read more »

Since you don’t know the whole story its better to be quite. Don’t comment for the same of commenting. How could you feel if u hear your daughters were raped? The robbers came with guns,zikwanje and zitsulo. Those who said they didn’t have the items were hurt with the tools they had… This is the second time.. First time it happened they reported to management nothing was done.. And dzana 3 hostels were attacked. This has nothing to do with mayeso. Ndipo mayeso ake ati midsemister yo?

The hostel security issue is the College’s management issue. Students pay for the accommodation. This has nothing to do with passers-by. Why disturb the peace of others that are not involved. Kapena kuthawa mayeso as is usually the case. Ana awa kuchititsa manyazi tsono.

It’s a shame that we always look for a solution when damage has already been done

It has to be outsiders, assisted by Poly’s security, as stolen items would quickly be identified were fellow students involved. But must you disturb the peace of innocent passersby?
