And another student, Kakonde Muzungu said they have learnt a lot from the suspension.

And, Pillars of Peace National Youth Coordinator, Winfred Chilufya appealed to President Lungu and Minister of Higher Education Nkandu Luo to heed to the calls made by the students adding that their families depend on them.

The seven students include Lifuke Muyenga, Winner Mwiinga, Kerris Habwacha, Ben Muwela and Paul Mwauluka.


      My thought too. Only toongas causing troubles in the country and beyond. Either hh or upnd must be disbanded to save the shame on this tribe.

      It's a grave sin to misuse a fellow human being to achieve your ambition. All youth must learn to think of their own future instead of fulfilling other people's agenda. My brother in law died after riots on behalf of FTJ. At no time as president did FTJ ever mention my late brother in law.

    you will never learn. In fact you need to be dismissed. Breaking cars for innocent people is unhuman. Lungu have these boys burned from UNZA

    Where does Lungu come in, go and make peace with the owners of the cars you stoned, who are very innocent. Its also not our fault that UNZA normally has some of the dullest students in the world.

    Kusamwa Veeeery St.upid boys. Your Excellency just Expel them. On that material day, the Great East Road was closed and we had to start using short cuts to run away from these silly boys.

    To err is human, but to forgive is divine. But the bible also says that he who does not chastise his child with a rod hates that child. Let the suspension continue so that it serves as a deterrent to the would be offenders.

    Why apologize to Lungu? Is Lungu in the administration of the university of Zambia? Why is everything in zambia about Lungu? How does Lungu insert himself in every institution and its affairs? These are matters that the university must take care of. Who suspended these kids? What are they doing about the suspensions? UNZA also. The people who run it are like kindergarten teachers. Even kindergarten teachers are better.
  7. Muzungu
    Daddy Lungu forgive these beings as they thought their tribesman Hechie Hechie would come to their aid after he made them do what they did.
  8. Litinga
    What I don't understand is their suspension has to involve the president. Do we need to involve the president in such issues when the vice chancellor can handle this issue? Presidency is being lowered to handle this level of issues.

    I was a student in the early 2000s and even then I never participated in ANY riot which sometimes made some suspicious as to my identity. Those who rioted and stoned cars often reasoned that those who don't are spies (mmd spies at the time). I think STIFFER punishment should be imposed on riotous students. These should PAY for the repair of cars and any property they damaged and then they should be forgiven BUT be expelled should they ever riot again.
    Send those chaps away forever. They thought it would "cho chise" as they knew it. They thought by aligning themselves to their god leader of the known opposition political party they would get away unnoticed! Let them continue with their politics outside the University. Next time they would do something more than they did.
