Calm has returned at – University of Zambia UNZA- Great East Road Campus, after students staged a protest, demanding the release of their examination results.

The students had earlier blocked the Great East Road with stones.

The situation only normalised, after police arrived at the scene, an hour after the students started protesting.

But UNZA Students Union -UNZASU- Secretary-General, Clement Kaponda said the protest had no blessings of the union.

Mr. Kaponda has however urged government to meet the lecturers’ demands for payment of outstanding allowances, so that the results can be released.

Meanwhile, Zambia Police Urban Commanding Officer, Donald Mwandila has warned the students against disturbing public peace.

Mr. Mwandila urged the students to use peaceful means to air their grievances.

  1. Somebody please educate me on this subject matter. Why is it that we (Zambia as a country) sell our minerals including Copper through the LONDON METAL EXCHANGE? Why don’t we sell direct to end-users like China, India etc etc?

    Speaking the English language (sometimes better than the English themselves) and/or living in England itself is NOT at all being educated. I don’t seem to understand this ‘jargon’ LME route please, somebodt expand more on it. Thank you…

  2. @Nkope, Zambia was colonized by British and they where clever than us, so when Zambians protested that they don’t want chains of British, Kaunda signed MOU that implicated Zambia’s right to sell. Kaunda was told clearly that you you Copper market will be ready in Britain for you Zambian, so Kaunda thought the MOU had no conditions, and here we are.
