PF says mining companies paying students to riot

PF Copperbelt province youth secretary Chanda Kabwe has accused some mine houses of sponsoring some students at Copperbelt University of staging demonstrations against the removal of fuel subsidies.
Mr Kabwe said his party has information that some mining firms have released money to support demonstrations against removal of fuel subsidies  by students.
“We have information that some mining houses have released funds to sponsor a number of students to stage demonstrations, because these mining firms they fear that with the removal of fuel subsidies they will now be paying more on diesel because they are the major users of diesel,” Mr Chanda said.
Mr Chanda urged youths not to be used by  what he called disgruntled and selfish politicians who are opposed to the removal of fuel subsidies.
He said the removal of fuel subsidies is a good move as it will benefit many Zambians adding that it will further bring about infrastructure development in the country.
He also claimed that ever since the PF government came into power, it has initiated a lot of developmental projects in the country.
A few days ago, Universities students at the three public Universities staged protests against the removal of fuel subsidies.
