HH demands reopening of Copperbelt University
UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema has demanded for the immediate re-opening of Copperbelt University.
CBU has been closed indefinitely following a spate of riots that rocked the institution.
Mr. Hichilema has charged that the closure of the institution coupled with protests by pupils across the country is an indication of a breakdown of the education system in the country.
He told a media briefing in Lusaka this morning that a disastor in the education sector is looming if the PF govenment does not change for the better.
Mr. Hichilema has also described the suspension of union leaders at CBU as unfair.
He has since called on government and CBU management to quickly resolve the challenges facing the institution.
Mr. Hichilema has also disclosed that the UPND has written to the Zambia police for a permit to protest against Acting Chief Justice Lombe Chibesakunda’s stay in office.
He said Justice Chibesakunda has proven to be favoring the PF in the execution of her duties hence the need to have her removed.
