Arrest them!

By KAIKO NAMUSA¬† –

PRESIDENT Michael Sata has ordered the immediate arrest of University of Zambia (UNZA) students who protested over the removal of fuel and maize subsidies in Lusaka yesterday.

Mr Sata also directed that the unruly students should be expelled from UNZA with immediate effect.

He said this in Chongwe yesterday during the commissioning of the construction of Palabana University.

The President said he had information that opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema had sponsored the students to engage in unruly behaviour.

“Today some opposition leaders like HH (Hakainde Hichilema) are taking money to buy students from UNZA to cause trouble at Arcades and on the Copperbelt.

“To this end, I ask you Minister of Education (John Phiri), identify those students, expel them from the university and hand them over to Ms (Joyce) Kasosa who will arrest them,” he said.
