Police warns CB students
Copperbelt Police Chief Charity Katanga has warned students from the Copperbelt University- CBU- in Kitwe that they will face the wrath of the law if they continue with their riotous behavior.
Mrs. Katanga says everything has a limit adding that students at CBU must not dare the police to apply force on them.
She was reacting to last night’s riots at CBU by the students who are demanding for their meal allowances.
Mrs. Katanga said quick action by the police prevented a serious riot at CBU where students burnt a tent within the CBU premises.
She said students in higher learning institutions must not resort to rioting and damaging people’s property whenever they are aggrieved.
Meanwhile, Government is disturbed that Muchinga, Northern and Luapula Provinces have continued to record poor academic schools results despite the areas witnessing school infrastructure development.
General Education Minister John Phiri says the results are a source of worry especially that the three provinces have received a fair number of staff under the recent teacher recruitment exercise.
Speaking at Mansa Secondary School, Dr. Phiri said school administrators in the three provinces must identify the cause of the poor results and work towards rectifying the problem.
He said government stands ready to help the three provinces improve their academic performance.
And Mansa Secondary School Head Lewis Mulengwa said the school is putting a remedial action to improve academic performance.
