Police detain CBU students for demanding meal allowances

Police in Kite on Monday arrested 17 CBU students who were demanding meal and other allowances.
The students were arrested  after they protested over unpaid meal allowances, which the PF government has failed to pay.
Copperbelt commissioner of police Charity Katanga said in an interview yesterday that of the 17 students, 15 are male.
She said the students are detained at Riverside Police Station and that they will appear in court for riotous behaviour and causing damage to property.
“We have arrested 17 students for riotous behaviour and causing damage to school and police property. We don’t know their intentions. Those arrested will appear in court,” Katanga said.
