Riot police in battle with UNZA students over mealie meal and fuel prices

Ailing dictator president Michael Sata has unleashed riot police to disperse University of Zambia students who are protesting at ZNBC studios against the removal of fuel and maize subsidies.

The students who started their protests last evening when they stormed Muvi TV studios to air their grievances this morning assembled and matched to ZNBC  studios to publicly denounce the PF government’s intention to remove the critical subsidies on the economy that has immediately pushed the prices of all commodities upward.

So far several police Land Cruiser vehicles have been spotted heading to mass media, Kalingalinga, and UNZA Great East Campus to control the situation.

The students who, themselves survive on meager monthly allowances, have complained that the cost of living in Zambia under the PF government was sky-rocketing at a very fast rate.

And the Watchdog understand that people on the Copperbelt are are gearing up for protests against the punitive measure by the PF government.
