Students at Lupane State University (LSU) on Tuesday staged a peaceful demonstration at the university’s campus over the decision made by the authorities to bar those who have not paid $350 registration fees from lectures.
Silas Makusha, the LSU students’ representative council president had this to say:
Barring students from attending lectures and accessing the university’s premises is what sparked the protest. As we speak no one is attending lectures.
We are living in crowded rooms. A room which is supposed to be used by two students is now accommodating eight students. They are also providing us with poor quality food.
Instead of barring students who have not registered from attending lectures they should just withhold their results. They should be flexible to us as we are flexible to them.
