Kaingu warns of CBU closure
Government has threatened to close the Copperbelt University -CBU- in Kitwe if students continue with the riotous behaviour.
Higher Education Minister Michael Kaingu has also disclosed that some CBU students are being used by opposition political leaders to fan confusion at the institution of higher learning.
Dr Kaingu says Government has information that some named opposition leaders have also been holding clandestine meetings with students.

He says Government will not fall prey to deceit and manipulation by the students.
Dr Kaingu says yesterday’s riots by CBU students in Kitwe are uncalled for and should not be condoned.
The Higher Education Minister said this in Kitwe today.
This was when he called on Acting Kitwe District Commissioner Mwape Kasanda.
Earlier, Mr. Kasanda told Dr Kaingu that a police motor vehicle was damaged in yesterday’s riots.
