CBU fails to pay workers March salaries

Copperbelt University (CBU) has failed to pay salaries for March citing circumstances beyond the institutions control as reasons for the delay.
An internal memo dated 30th March 2016 and signed by a Mwala K. Sheba from the office of the Registrar states that management regretted the inconvenience caused by the delay in paying salaries.
‘This serves to inform all members of staff of the Copperbelt University that due to circumstances beyond the institution’s control, March 2016 salaries will be delayed,’ reads part of the memo.
Students meanwhile are expecting to return to the University by 10th April 2016 if the PF government will find money for them.
Meanwhile Copperbelt University -CBU Vice Chancellor Naison Ngoma says management has made significant progress in meeting some of the conditions set for reopening of the institution.
Professor Ngoma has also revealed that fourteen students have been identified as riot leaders and will be investigated and those found wanting will be expelled.
Professor Ngoma says management has to meet the six conditions the Ministry of Higher Education set for reopening the institution.
Professor Ngoma revealed that security at the two gates has been enhanced while security cameras have been installed in strategic places to monitor the inflow of people entering the campus.
He also revealed that students’ commitment forms have been devised which all returning students will sign before being readmitted.
The government wants the university to meet conditions of turning the institution into a ‘prison’ facility so that they monitor and intimidate students.
