The students burned tyres and demanded money from motorists in what they said was a demonstration against university management who had introduced a new system which demands full payment of school fees to access results and half payment to register for new semester.

The day started with a strike by staff who are demanding an increment in their salaries and other benefits.

University officials could not be reached for comment.

In Zomba, staff at the city council have closed offices as they are demanding a 15 per cent salary increase.

Operations of the council have been paralysed and the council is losing money in revenue as even revenue collectors have joined the strike.

Council spokesperson Mercy Chaluma has refused to comment on the strike.

If this happens for 4 years, the student owes the college MK 800,000. If the college has 5000 students, the College is owed MK 4,000,000,000 (4 Billion Kwacha). And then we wonder why our Universities are not improving???

We need a federalism with rotational presidency among our three provinces and each province allocated points according to its population.
