The students booed Chishala when he visited the institution to address them in a bid to prevent them from joining their colleagues from UNZA, CBU and Mulungushi universities in the protests.
Chishala attempted to convince the students that the decision (subsidy removal) was well meant but his speech was constantly interrupted by heckles and booing from the over 200 students.

The students have categorically told the DC that the government’s decision to remove subsidies was not only ill timed but also evil. They condemned government for neglecting the institution, whose infrastructure remains uncompleted for the past four years despite ailing dictator Michael Sata’s continued bragging of the institution being a full fledged university.
Before the meeting could end the students started walking out of the auditorium.
