The University of Zambia has announced that the institution is ready for re-opening after having met all the benchmarks set by Higher Education Minister Michael Kaingu.
UNZA Public Relations and International Liaison Relations Manager Damaseke Chibale said all the conditions set by Higher Education Minister Michael Kaingu had been met including mounting of security cameras in strategic places at the institution.
Mr. Chibale said that distance learning students are expected will report on April 10 while day time students will report on April 24.
He said the process of issuing ID cards to all the students has since commenced.
“We have started installing CCTV in strategic locations within the University grounds which we can’t disclose for security reasons,” Mr Chibale said.
UNZA and the Copperbelt University were closed by Dr Kaingu on February 3 following riots that be-dogged the two higher learning institutions over meal allowances.
Government has set out 10 conditions for re-opening including expulsion of ring leaders, signing of commitment forms to not engage in violence and installation of security cameras.
