UNZA students protest subsidy removal at ZNBC

Some UNZA students enraged by PF government’s decision to remove maize and fuel subsidies protested at ZNBC Wednesday mid-morning.
The students were however met by police officers in full riot gear deployed to ZNBC along Alick Nkhata road to maintain public peace.
The students carried placards denouncing the PF government and urging President Michael Sata to listen to the cries of the poor.
There placards also read that “PF is Bufi,” in reference to hit antigovernment song Bufi by Petersen and Pilato.
The students vowed to continue protesting until government rescinds its decision to remove the subsidies.
There is now a heavy presence of riot police on Great East road in Lusaka in anticipation of further student riots.
