Police arrest 26 UNZA students


Police have arrested twenty six University of Zambia (UNZA) students in connection with yesterday’s riot at the Great East Road Campus.
Police Spokesperson Charity Munganga-Chanda has told QFM News in a telephone interview that the arrested students have since been charged with conduct likely to cause the breach of peace.
Ms. Chanda says the 26 students will appear in Court tomorrow.
She adds that Police officers are still keeping vigil at the campus to prevent the students from mobilizing.
Ms Chanda says Police will not hesitate to arrest any student found to be breaching peace.
Students at the University of Zambia yesterday ran riot demanding to be paid full bursaries.
This came barely 24 hours after students at the Copperbelt University also rioted demanding to be paid their meal allowances.
