Calm has returned to the University of Zambia -UNZA- Great East Road campus, after students protest, from Monday night into Tuesday morning.
The students are demanding for an increase in their meal allowances.
Calm has since returned while police officers in riot gear are still keeping vigil at the institution.
A TV 2 news crew that has visited the UNZA Great East Road campus on Tuesday, found the situation calm, and students going about their business.
This morning Students protested demanding for an increment in meal allowances due to the high cost of living.
The students gathered at Mock Square where they started chanting slogans leading to disruptions in the flow of traffic around the area.
Riot Police however moved in quickly to quell the demonstrations.
Students are currently paid K 22.50 per day as meal allowances.
UNZASU Vice President Hakham Himaanga told Journalists that the students are demanding that government increases their daily meal allowances from K22.50 to K35 which have not been revised since 2011.
‘The cost of living around the campus have gone up and it is only fair that our meal allowances are increased accordingly,’ Mr. Himaanga.
