Hundreds of Copperbelt University (CBU) students ran amok Monday evening for none payment of meal allowances by governnment. The students matched from the campus on to Jambo Drive, which they blocked with stones, logs and burning types.
The students were chanting anti government slogans as they protested over the delayed payment of their meal allowances. The students condemned the bursaries committee for ineffectiveness in dealing with the student’s allowances. The students were supposed to be paid their meals allowances some time last week. The students were kept at bay by the police who were in full riot gear at the entrance of the University. Just last week, students in Russia complained of being abandaoned by the government.
