Government to use Students bursary to pay for any damage caused during Students riots

Acting President Edgar Lungu has issued a statement stating that from today going forward, student would be held responsible for any property that is damaged during the riots. According the the statement, Government will either deduct the cost from students bursaries or use other means to recover the costs.
“Recoveries will be done through managements of the responsible institutions. In this respect, if students involved are not singularly identifiable, then the whole body mass of students will be subjected to contributions toward the recoveries,” read the statement.
