Students mooting next course of action after govt failure to reopen schools

Students of all education levels in the country say they will be meeting to moot out the next course of action after government failed to respond to their demand to have schools opened immediately.

Concerned students: get children learning again at school”

The students gave the government a 48-hour ultimatum to respond to the grievances by concerned students who demand the immediate reopening of schools.

This follows last Tuesday’s demonstrations where the students gave the authorities a 48 hour ultimatum to respond.

They argue that the country’s education system continues to suffer in adhering to strict regulations while drinking joints and market places are freely operating.

Schools are now in their fourth week of a five-week closure brought about by the unprecedented rise in cases of Covid 19 in the country.

However, the National Publicity Secretary for the Concerned Students Kelvin Kasanga says the students will be meeting to chart the next course of action.

Meanwhile, pressure is mounting on Education authorities to re-open schools as any prolonged closure is putting at risk the girl child.

Barbra Banda seasoned Gender rights campaigner said continued closure of schools is outing girls at risk of exposure to various forms of abuse.

Banda has since urged government to come up with quick solutions that will see schools re-opening while at the same time having students protected from contracting the virus.

The govt should really listen. Most of us are doing online learning, it’s all copy and paste …we are not learning anything new,face to face kinda education makes us to work efficiently and effectively not this whole thing. What if covid Is here to stay? That means no school? This country will surely have educated savages or just savages in general

Even Mr president knows that once students have started reacting then his post is in danger.
University students once they come out lively into demo’s no body will stop them.
Even your president knows very well.
Only a foolish parent can say schools must remain closed.
Think big and wise enough.
Or maybe those people who are dying of covid are they all students?
Very stupid move.
I once say OPEN SCHOOLS NOW!!!!

Funny enough, the students are now teaching their elders how to wear a pant? Can’t we reduce speed and let all necessary checks be done? Why the rush like you are incharge. Tipole kaye. He who can’t lock down his girl child should not sacrifice everyone, we still care about our lives.

Silly students. You comparison is poor. School can wait amid the pandemic. That’s what is happening world wide. Misguided and brainwashed as you are, the country has no future.

Schools must be opened. The argument of bars and markets raised by students must not be undermined. Strict measures are supposed to be put in place rather than keeping the schools closed. Life must continue though with difficulties. Inuso a PHWISA comment yanu ndi ya ziiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
