Government has cautioned students at higher learning institutions against riotous behaviour which causes unnecessary disruptions and delays in study programs.
Science, Technology and Vocational Training Minister Peter Daka was speaking at the second graduation ceremony at Ukwimi Trades Training institute in Petauke district today.
Mr. Daka who is also Msanzala Member of Parliament said the recent riotous behaviour erxhibited by some students in some learning institutions in the country robbed government of much needed human resources.
He added that such a habit applied only to the laws of the jungle.
Meanwhile, the Minister commended 24 students who graduated with craft certificates in various vocational courses for successfully completing the courses other than concentrating on pulling government efforts down.
He advised students to desiset from blindly following politicians who incite students to rise against government in institutioins of higher learning as both government and guardians are spending a lot of money in educating them.
The minister further said studeants who are busy playing fond boycotts and strikes instead aof studying will be expelled.
And speaking at the same functioin, Ukwimi Trades Training Institute Principal, Shadreck Mapiki said since the opening of the college in 1996 the number of students has increased hence the need to finish the new structures at the Petauke boma campus to accommodate more students.
Mr. Mapiki said cosntruction works at the new campus has taken too long because of limited resources pumped towards the same project.
He has since appealed to government to send more money to the contractors to have the buildings completed on time.
