Students from the Malawi Polytechnic, a constituent college of the University of Malawi are planning to start their illegal demonstrations, Friday. A development which has seen Chancellor College being closed in Zomba.

According to sources from the Polytechnic, some students feel that as far as the issue of fees hiking is concerned, negotiations will not help them solve the puzzle they are in and the best option  is to go in highway on Friday to hold illegal demonstrations and put business in Blantyre to a standstill.

“On Friday we should make sure that  our voices  are heard by demonstrations, if we don not  fight back who fight for us? It t is now or never, we need to burn our fire. Lets show those poor decision makers that not even single university agrees with fees hiking by making highway not passable for just a day” ,said one student who is in the group of those organizing illegal demonstrations to Malawi Brief.

Some student allege that University of Malawi (UMSU) and Polytechnic Students Union (PSU)  have failed them and their last  hope is in violence.

As we write, Chancellor College has been closed for the illegal demonstration which took place yesterday and it is yet known when it will open again.
