Government has today announced the indefinite closure of the University of Zambia Great East road campus and the Copperbelt University.

Higher Education Minister Dr Michael Kaingu announced the closure of the country’s two highest learning institutions at a news briefing in Lusaka this afternoon.

Dr Kaingu observed that the situation at UNZA Great East Road Campus and CBU in Kitwe has deteriorated to levels posing a threat to life and property.

He disclosed that all students are expected to leave the two main campuses by midnight tonight.

Dr Kaingu said the only students exempted from the closure are those from the school of medicine Ridgeway and Ndola campuses, graduate schools, evening, distance and parallel programmes.

He said the criminal behavior by students and known opposition activists has forced Government to take decisive steps to restore law and order.

Dr Kaingu claimed that two opposition leaders were spotted distributing t-shirts and pamphlets at several higher learning institutions including the two universities in recent weeks.

Below is Dr Kaingu’s statement in full

PRESS STATEMENT BY THE MINISTER OF HIGHER EDUCATION, HONOURABLE DR. MICHAEL L. KAINGU ON THE OCCURRENCES AT THE COPPERBELT UNIVERSITY AND THE UNIVERSITY OF ZAMBIA

Good afternoon friends from the media

The situation at the University of Zambia Great East Road Campus and the Copperbelt University in Kitwe has deteriorated to levels posing a threat to life and property.

The criminal behaviour by students and known opposition activists has forced Government to take decisive steps to restore law and order.

Two opposition leaders were spotted distributing t-shirts and pamphlets at several higher learning institutions including the two universities in recent weeks. At Luanshya Trades Institute, known lecturers are actively distributing inflammatory literature and engaging in conduct inimical to the wellbeing of the academic life at the college. These and many other actions threatening law and order at higher learning institutions cannot be tolerated any longer.

As you may all be aware by now, there have been some disturbances at our two public universities, namely the Copper belt University and the University of Zambia purportedly emanating from delayed payment of meal allowances.

As a matter of background, you may wish to note that as a way of promoting access to university education, the Government provides support to vulnerable students in form of payment of the following:

  • Tuition and accommodation fees;
  • Accommodation refunds for students not accommodated by the universities;
  • Meal allowances;
  • Book allowances; and
  • Project allowances.

Modes of Payment

Tuition and accommodation fees are paid to the universities at the beginning of every academic year while other allowances are paid directly to the students.
Meal allowances are paid to the students at the beginning of every term. Book allowances are paid to students at the beginning of every academic year. Project and accommodation refunds are paid to entitled students upon receipt of information from the universities.

Payments to Students at the Copperbelt University

The Copperbelt University students were paid book and term one meal allowances on 10th June 2015 (at beginning of term one); term 2 allowances were paid on 9th November 2015 while project and accommodation refunds were paid on 18th January 2016. Part of the term 3 meal allowances were paid yesterday on 2nd February 2016. The allowance paid was K1, 317.50 per student. This is meal allowance for 59 days out of the 97 days for term 3.

Payments to students at the University of Zambia

The University of Zambia students were paid book and term one meal allowances on 18th November 2015 (at beginning of term one), while part of the term 2 meal allowances were paid yesterday on 2nd February 2016. The allowance paid was K1,192.50 per student. This is meal allowance for 53 days out of the 90 days for term 2.

On Friday 29th January 2016, students at the University of Zambia protested against delayed term 2 meal allowances for the 2015/2016 academic year. On Monday 1st February 2016, students at the Copperbelt University also protested against delayed term 3 meal allowances for the 2015/2016 academic year.

It is important to note that so far all allowances have been paid. The only allowance that was delayed was the meal allowance.

Despite assurances that students would be paid the meal allowance as soon as the Ministry of Finance releases funds for that purpose, students chose to take to the streets to disturb the general public and destroy property.

The delayed allowances were paid yesterday but the students have chosen to continue with their violent protests.

I am extremely saddened to note that students who are supposed to be vulnerable and are receiving this government support as a privilege have chosen to behave like thugs.

Due to the lack of a conducive environment for learning at the two public universities, it has been decided that the two universities close indefinitely. All students are expected to leave the two main campuses, namely CBU and UNZA by midnight tonight.

Regrettably, the disturbances at the two universities have been driven by known opposition elements seeking to extract perceived political gain out of the ongoing chaos.

A real and eminent danger to life and property now exists at the two universities and surrounding areas and, therefore, government has decided to act to prevent possible loss of life. Police will take necessary steps to restore law and order.

At CBU, the nation may wish to know that ten of the offenders arrested on campus who appeared in court yesterday are in fact not students but opposition activists. We question the involvement of these people in protests for students’ meal allowances.

The only students exempted from this closure are those from the school of medicine Ridgeway and Ndola campuses, graduate schools, evening, distance and parallel programmes.

Lastly, I wish to reiterate that Government will not tolerate rogue behaviour among university students. The nation looks up to university students as future leaders and it is unacceptable to see them behave like criminals.

I thank you.

    • An age long culture of indiscipline at Zambia’s Institutions of Higher Learning, the same kind of violence we see in the political arena. Unza aud CBU are the seedbed of it.

    • Good news. Students need to be responsible enough to realise what a privilege they have. Why should they protest when they have been paid part of the allowances??? We support students when they have genuine cause for protest but this time around, they have misbehaved and deserve the punishment. In this day and age, how many countries still provide free education!!!!

      MMS MP Michael Kaingu a “useful cadre” under PF the visionless Lungu of PF is now closing the two highest universities in the country.

Those of us who have gained education from UNZA or CBU will empathize and the only thing I can condemn the students for is the damage to private property.

    • PF has destroyed UNZA and CBU completely while their children are being sent abroad at a huge cost. One PF student sent to abroad needs money equivalent to bursaries for 20 students at either UNZA or CBU. If such is not selfishness of the highest order then I would doubt the sanity of anyone supporting PF when things are like this.

      PF ni bachimbwi no plan as HH said from the onset. HH made accurate prediction of how pathetic PF would be in running the Zambian enterprise on behalf of its citizens. People called him all names except a few of us who know his career expertise that his ability to predict is what made him rich in the first place. HH is able to make good predictions and that’s why and how his investments have grown exponentially. He does not invest in some business he…

    • He does not invest in some business he knows will collapse soon.

      Zambian students my advice to you is to go out there and campaign vigorously against the PF and for UPND the only party with the capacity to rectify what PF has destroyed.

      Imagine a Zambia where you go school undisturbed and walk out of school with a credible qualification with a job guaranteed.

      Now is not the time to imagine but act so that your imagination is turned into reality by voting for UPND.

      2016 Vote UPN and the HH team.

    • One would have thought students would have learnt from history that riotous behaviour leads to closure and that they are the biggest losers when the university closes. My 5-year engineering degree spilled over into the sixth year because UNZA was closed as a result of students demonstrating at the French Embassy against France for selling arms to apartheid S.A. There was Kapumpa climbing the flag pole to remove the French flag. We did not realize this demo against apartheid would result in UNZA closure. But today you find students blocking GT East RD smashing cars belonging to innocent people instead of demonstrating at offices responsible for allowances. Instead of completing the studies on time they put a strain on their parents’ finances who partly or wholly fund their education.

    • These disruptive closures hugely affect the international recognition/credibility of our universities in that our undergraduate studies lose their worth as prerequisite credentials for international postgraduate programmes. Those wishing to pursue their careers beyond the borders of our country with UNZA or CBU qualifications may also be equated to holders of diplomas or higher national certificates. So, these students shouldn’t unreasonably go beyond the bounds of their legitimate grievances, most of which, according to Dr Kaingu, have been addressed or being attended to. Mob psychology also blindfolds some hardworking students f On my way! the reality of them being used by those who may either not be making progress in their studies or be ill prepar d for their exams or assignment….

Denying our children an education because ba PamaFi have pocketed all our money instead of paying Lecturers & students their dues, which are a fraction of all monies spent on flying our local chakolwa abroad so that he can enjoy more whisky – the solution isn’t kicking our kids out of universities & keeping their lecturers unpaid!!!!

    • Lets get one thing clear here, how is it the opposition’s problem if these students were not paid meal allowances. I think students are much smarter than that to be influenced by someone. I think their motivation for these riots is hunger. They read/watch the news and can see that government officials are buying private jets, the President is flying everywhere, millions of Dollars are disappearing, Government is spending on useless dinner Galas, etc., and the Government says it has no money for allowances.

      I dont support the riots, but I cant blame the students either. If the Government has enough money to sponsor Mr Kambwili to visit the entire country to deliver hate speech and tribal talk, them the students deserve better.

    • This behavior is completely unacceptable. We expect civilized behavior from university students, instead of this hooliganism. Follow proper channels to have your grievances addressed, rather than resorting to the destruction of private citizens’ property, who have nothing to do with your beef with the government. Use peaceful demonstrations. And also the government helping you with funding for your meals is not an entitlement. It’s a privilege, a big sacrifice by tax payers who want to see you get educated and be leaders of tomorrow. The government should also cut down on bureaucracy, and prioritize the disbursement of these funds to the needy students on time. It’s impossible for anyone to concentrate on lectures on an empty stomach. Furthermore, closing the universities…

If you haven’t thought of a better and fair system, at least honour the one that is in place. For the moment bursaries are there to ensure that even students from disadvantaged families are able to attain a higher education. Not all parents can afford to provide for the weeks when meal allowances fail to be paid. Some people will just criticize the students from the hip, so to say (of course I condemn destruction of innocent peoples property) but it is time there was an objective debate about successive govt. failures to appreciate, value and recognize education. Otherwise we are on the sure way (for a poor country) of making education a preserve of the elitist, privileged and…

They are quick to claim praise from the infrastructure development but deny to take responsibility for the effect of pumping caused by money in roads at the expense of the economy that supports businesses which pay taxes. Now the government is broke and all the blame is on everybody else but themselves. I like leaders who make decision and take responsibility for their action, otherwise, they should not be leaders.

They should stop acting like spoilt children and face the hardships with reason and dialogue. The sooner they make dissent at these Universities illegal the better.

  22. This is good firm action in a country where violence is bubbling on the surface. Praise to Hon. Kaingu for this uncompromising step. Honestly, I have never seen such nonsense even in Europe where delays in student finances happen during processing. Damaging other people’s property is unacceptable. Why don’t these students earn pocket money before terms begin? Can’t parents arrange a small food package to take to school. Please don’t keep saying they are poor. There are other poor people who don’t even take such self righteous criminal conduct.

    • The whole system of paying these allowances is wrong…they pay them like salaries; why do they pay them one time at the beginning of semester and this job should be given to a quasi govt organisation that also collects student loans everything going into one pot.

  24. GRAND you’ve probably never been to these universities. We used to be accused of the same thing by the MMD government when I was there. Just pay them what they are owed and they will be peace. Giving us a break down of peace meal payments is ridiculous. We were paid the whole amount at one go and we remained peaceful. I was at CBU for four years and we had a demonstration just once because MMD paid us the money when it was due. Now your PF characters giving us a useless breakdown here and you start condemning the students. Enroll there and experience the life there instead of condemning from a distance and things you barely understand.

  25. Fellow Zambians, the behaviour of the students is a microcosm of a disenchanted public. Whenever there is mis-governance in any country, students, by virtue of group-think behavior react first. They are the conscience of society; responding to deteriorating economic and social standards. Government has not learned how to manage student interests. By pushing money at the heat of the moment does not solve the bigger picture. They want assurance government support will not be hand-to-mouth so that they do not have to be on the streets each time they are hungry. Why does government only respond when there are riots? Is this not the highest form of leadership lapse and negligence that creates a suitable environment for opposition parties to have a foothold (assuming the allegation is true).

  27. From a neutral point of view, its a sad day for the Education system in Zambia. This move by the Minister, though being supported by some comments above, further degrades our Universities as compared to other stable Universities in the region. Zambia can not develop without ensuring that our citizens receive quality uninterrupted education. Govt is not solving the root cause of these unrests at our Universities by closing them. Most of the affected are innocent students from poor families who might not even participated in the riots.

      Explain to us how the two Universities ran smoothly under UNIP. MMD did better than what we are seeing now. What is the reality apart from erratic Govt funding?

      To my recollection, these two universities have been like spoiled kids. They have never run smoothly under any government. Check their history. You will find repeated riots, closures etc. And that is reflected in the kind of leaders we have in the country today. No mature person will opt to throw stones in order to solve a money problem.

  28. During student protests in 2012, police picked up everyone they found walking by Mashlands area. One man packed the vehicle by the bus stop and hopped off to buy talk time across Great East Road leaving a four year old daughter in the car. Police saw him, bundled him violently into the police vehicle ignoring his pleas. They took him to Woodlanda leaving his daughter in the car with a running engine. These are the people Kaingu claims were not students.

When will we ever realise that there cannot be any meaningful development without developing people? Meal allowances sure! I’ve never even heard of prisoners complaining about meal allowances here in the USA. I suggest the Government set up an independent body to look after student affairs so that this becomes a thing of the past. Otherwise I see another generation of unemployable graduates.

  38. yes and employers can recruit from Mulungushi, Copperstone, catholic universities, and others where parents and students sacrifice for their education. But don’t worry there will be enough jobs digging drainages on Chinese road projects for the unza and cbu students. That’s what UPND wants them to be so be it if they agree.there will be enough managers like HH from the peaceful universities while unza and cbu will provide the labourers.

  39. The PF only applies excessive measures on students for their violent actions but when PF cadres take over an international airport violently and even threatening the security and safety of an airborne air craft and its passengers they turn a blind eye to that and remain mute.
    Students from poor families will continue to suffer while those of PF leaders are sent abroad for their uninterrupted studies. The only solution is to kick out the PF in August.

Let the two universities remain closed for as long as it takes so that the whole institution can be fully rehabilitated, cleaned up and admission conditions reviewed to take care of many gaps that have existed at these institutions for so long. After all the students coming out of these two institutions of late add very little value to the real world after graduating in other words Zambia can.do without these thieves and drunkards for the next 4 years. We have enough and serious people who can do better than these thags who think University is just another ghetto.

  47. Time has come to stop giving meal,project and book allowances but instead the parents or guardians should be loaned this money to give to their children at these universities. Those who don’t have parents or guardians should sign an undertaking to pay back when they complete and begin working. This should be done through a bank. The only thing government should pay is tuition and accommodation.This will bring normalcy to the heads of these students. Also seeing these institutions are becoming a threat to peace Unions should be abolished and replaced with house leaders, access restricted to guardians or parents.

By the way when did government borrow money from these students. Its like your Uncle promises to give you school fees and he delays, will you begin to smash the windows of his house. Thats why in developed countries they loan these students money to pay for their education.To those still living in old glory, UNZA and CBU are no longer the only institutions in Zambia producing graduates, there are other universities and colleges with high caliber of lecturers…

Who gave you the right to smash cars at will. Wait very soon you will learn that money should be worked for before you can claim someone owes you money. We will push hard for reforms to have you carry heavy loans on both your heads and that of your parents. To be admitted you should prove that you have your own meal, book and project allowance. Even civil servants will no longer get free cars from government its loans bane. Its a season of personal responsibility.

  54. Sad day. It will just make PF more unpopular, even if the students have not conducted themselves properly. The government’s action here is suggestive of lack of care and an inability to analyse the consequences. I always doubted the calibre of Mr Kaingu, especially when he began to be called `Dr’, without explanation. This is a man without proper credentials to be the minister of higher education. You need someone the students and universities will respect in such positions. Abuse of authority is not going to resolve an issue clearly a problem. How can a student survive on ZMK1350 for 59 days? Let’s learn to be calm and educate our students on the merits of proper conduct through our own actions. Closing universities is a third world uncaring and expensive way of dealing with issues…

My secondary physics teacher was pushing the wall and told the class that the wall was also pushing him. I thought he was mad until later when I realized that a bulldozer can push the wall down.

Some of us who have sent children to private universities are paying thru our noses and we dont hear such nonses from our children even if we delay in givin them money.

  70. The indefinite closure of the two universities does not aim at making PF popular or unpopular. The behaviour of students at the two institutions should be scrutinized whether it is externally driven or not. The students’ behaviour of damaging property of innocent people should be condemned at all costs because for one to earn the property suffers and foregoes luxury and other amenities! It is unreasonable for one just to destroy or damage the property with impunity! This is the reason why people look for means and ways of protecting and safeguarding their hard earned or acquired property that some student find it easy to destroy! My word of advise to all students who think that the only way to air out their grievances is to damage property of innocent people to refrain from such…

  73. The riots taking place at UNZA and CBU explains it all why, these two institutions are no longer preferred learning insttitutions for anybody. Look Unza is ranked 2627 in the world and 70 in Africa. CBU is 12,613 in the world and not ranked at all in Africa. GRZ must abolish all bursaries. College students in Zambia don’t receive those monies like students at the two institutions get. Whreever vamahla is given there is no respect. Remember during Unip era , when mealie meal coupons were being given, therewas mayhem,killing one another.For those who could afford a K37 to buy a 25kg bag it was all smooth d smiles. Vamahala should come to an end. A real student can’t disarm a police officer, those are thugs.

We have witnessed these riots since the UNIP era and now is the time to act or find answers. Here is a simple and very effective solution. GRZ must abolish all student sponsorship or financing in any form. This has brought laziness to many of our people. GRZ should become a partner in business of runnnig these schools who should be paying taxes to government. In short privatize these schools as is the case in the Western world. Let everyone seeking University education fund themselves, only then will sanity return to these schools. A beggar can’t be the chooser and be dictating to be master. How can a student from a disadvantaged back ground be the one in the forefront…

Indeed only persons who have never be to CBU or UNZA can find it difficult to side with the students. To you my friends(students) let us not destroy innocent property when we are aggrieved. To govt you know your obligation about student welfare, when they are due your duty is to pay to avoid the blame game we are hearing. I for one I actually blame govt for whatever damage the students have caused.

    Food for thought no money for students more money for marketeers. Poor economics re-capitalizing a sector that does not even pay tax. We are sitting on a time bomb which will only favor those implementing it. Lets wait and see. As we look at this issue we should remove self and look at…

    The money meant for the food should go to more bursaries. Students and Guardian should find other means of meals. Maybe a problem where students can do some work within the campus and then pay them. Otherwise they will always be a reason to make noise.
