The University of Zambia Lecturers and Researchers and Union-UNZALARU- has resolved to release the students’ withheld examination results following an agreement with government over the payment of outstanding contractual monetary dues.
UNZALARU President Eustone Chiputa has confirmed this in an interview with ZNBC news in Lusaka.
Dr Chiputa says government has undertaken to pay 150 million Kwacha before the end of December towards the 320 million Kwacha accrued dues.
According to Dr Chiputa, the academic staff will be paid the balance of 170 million Kwacha after December.
He told ZNBC that management will now be availed the students’ examination results for processing before the Acting Vice Chancellor officially releases them.
Dr Chiputa is hopeful that the financial commitments will be fulfilled to allow for smooth runing of the university.
UNZARALU members had vowed to withhold examination results until they were paid their dues.
