Students at Mulungushi university main campus on the Great North road in Kabwe have joined in the country wide demonstrations to press the PF government against removal of subsidy on fuel and maize and have blocked the Great North road.
The students have boycotted classes and have vowed to do so until their multiple problems are addressed.
The institution has been sealed by over 50 policemen in full riot kit and about 100 plain clothed and undisclosed number of intelligence officers (OP).
The safety of the students is at stake and some have started fleeing the institution.
At about mid night gunshots were heard in the campus premises.
