The Copperbelt University management has announced a reduction of the surcharge imposed on students from K1500 to K150.

CBU Vice Chancellor Professor Naison Ngoma disclosed this to Journalists in Kitwe this afternoon.

Prof. Ngoma said the decision follows a consultative meeting with Higher Education Minister Dr. Brian Mushimba.

He said management had taken heed of guidance from Dr Mushimba and that the surcharge for the general students populace has been reduced to K150.

The Vice Chancellor however clarified that those that were suspended for their role in the riot that led to the indefinite closure of CBU in April this year will be charged K1000 each while those that were expelled but later reinstated at the mercy of the Minister and on suspension for an academic year will still pay K1500 each upon returning to the institution.

He added that the K150 will have to be paid by all returning students before they are re-admitted at the institution.

    • Kekekekeke these people, all of them are effected with PF’s disease of inflated figures. Initial figures were in “old” MMD currency. They just removed a zero.
      From K15000 or K150, there is no difference also to say K1.5 million to K150 thousand.
      PF also did this, change just
      Or building a hospital from $155million reduced to K155million, just change the sign to a K.

    • This Ngoma has outlived his uselessness, all students must pay K150 not ifi fyabupuba at I some K1000 and others K1500, after all it is his foolishness that caused all the nonsense K150 will give the fool about K1.8m which he doesn’t need to repair the damages, those who were suspended and expelled have been forgiven so why give them stupid conditions? Futsek!

    This is a very fair and astute state of events and out come. Brian Mushimba is proving to be a great higher education minister. We need more proactive ministers.

  2. So this ngoma failed to come up with an appropriate surcharge, he had to be guided by Mushimba? He needs to be fired, then charged with abuse of authority.

  3. Eya bane, why did you want us to pay K 15000 on behalf of our children who never took part in the riots? Ba Mushimba mwabombeni bane, epashili pakuleka. We hope students can learn from this that it does not pay to destroy institutional property. You only play into the hands of management that can use the destruction of property as an excuse for extracting money from you.

  4. Wow..that represents 90% reduction on the original surcharge …question is,how did they arrive at K1 500 surcharge if K 150 is okay?

  5. Naison Ngoma must remove the Nkandu Luo simcard from his operations, the reign of terror must come to an end. You can’t always bully everyone. I ask Naison to emulate Given Lubinda and prank a resignation and see how much jubilation will hit CBU. It will echo up to Chinsali via Ndola. That’s how he’s not wanted even by the people he works with

  7. Arbitrary figures thrown around just to take advantage and raise as much money as possible – probably without any co-relation to the actual costs of the damage. It’s a growing culture in the country – everyone trying to make a fast buck, in any way possible.

  8. I think Brian Mushimba is the hero and saviour in this case. The man is so sensible and the missing voice of reasoning that our country needed. Really Luo deserves those Alangizi who can insert a bottle in her old smelly pus.sey without sleeves!
    Luo is such a wicked woman surely – she must be walking around with shame. How can a woman punish the young kids like she owns out country! She belongs to the pig house for sure.

  9. Anasoni tekanyani anasoni eey tekanyani…it is interesting to see people who have felt the brutal administrative force of situations and pleaded for compassion yet fail to exercise the same compassion they sought when they were down… NG is an example of a person who though exposed cannot work devoid of emotion…the students did wrong but part of the process must be to correct their behavior holistically not only were its most harsh the parents pockets…Yes they erred and that is human just as you sir did many years ago….
