The Ministry of Higher Education has dismissed allegations that the University of Zambia (UNZA) and the Copperbelt University (CBU) will not enroll new students for the 2016/2017 academic year.

Ministry of Higher Education Permanent Secretary Owen Zulu told ZANIS in an interview today that government is still engaging the two institution’s student unions and management to chart the way forward over their re-opening of the public universities.

Mr Zulu said that government has not yet decided the official date when the two higher learning institutions will resume normal operations.

Mr Zulu who could not state the actual date of re-opening stated that the two institutions may re-open before or after August 2016.

He appealed to the affected families and students to stay calm as government seeks a lasting solution and that the Ministry will inform the nation once the matter is resolved and the re-opening date set.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Higher Education has cautioned people on social media to stop posting unsubstantiated stories concerning UNZA and CBU.

This follows a myriad of stories circulating regarding the impasse at the two institutions of higher learning following their closure on grounds of riotous behavior by some students demanding allowances.

  1. Don’t open those filthy and smelly colleges. Let them be opened in 2017 and if anything let’s start afresh with new entrants and have those other students expelled so that everyone learns from them

  2. Who is going to remove them from power? I thought the best thing would have been asking students to start acting responsibly. The govt you are insulting paid students more than half of meal allowance. Remove them so that you bring in govt that will allow them damage inocent pipo’s property.

    • @Moscow you behave as if the money the government uses to pay allowances comes from LUNGU’s pocket. Its a favour but an absolute earned right to get educational allowances from the government.

      Lungu chose to share the money meant for students to pay himself and his stooges hefty travel allowances for the trips he is making.

      2016 vote PF out please without fail.

  8. Imwe bafi*** who keep saying unza and cbu are filthy with incompitent students and lecturers are the same ignorant f****** who know nothing about what goes on in the unis. There was no damaged property so what protection are you talking about? Govt has no money to pay students . Moreover 3 4ths of the students are now self sponsored if not more. What do you have to say about the majority who pay thousands of kwachas. Them lunatics have misused funds and now they can’t pay out allowances and you f****** want to say sh** ala!!!!bafikili shut the f*** up if you weren’t there and don’t know what was happening. Peeps are out on the streets no qualifications and what not, thousands of peoples lives being messed with. Unza only demonstrated for a day. Its supposed to be three days of endless…

    • Judgemenot and ree c are right on point. Nomore should inappropriate statements be said about our schools. We’ve gone through too much suffering due to failure to better our stay in school. Was supposed to finish my last exams this july now I’m out on the streets hustling. Don’t think there won’t be retaliation to these nonsensical statements about my school. The VIVA will be brought here in speech and we good at it. Do not be mistaken we may be home but are still capable of defending ourselves. As far as things are concerned we did nothing wrong and the school closed due to insufficient capacity to keep it running

  10. Comment: To say that UNZA and CBU are filthy is very painful to a true Zambian. this is what we have. this is what Britain left for us. and this is what every true and hard-working Zambian wants to change to better. yes, filthy they may be, but hasn’t HH, EL, LPM, you etc come from ?? you come out of UNZA and CBU fully baked, not more academically to compare yourself with others, but more strong to face challenges because you would have Finnished facing them at these institutions !! say a word to change our country for better, and not a word to destroy.

  12. Comment:you call an institution which made you have the pride to having went to University filthy? I don’t get it. If I imagine the years you spent there, it lives me to wonder how filthy you ‘ve gotten. My advice: for health reasons to the public, you have to be quaranteened in as a.s.p. #Proud_unza_student #one_monk
