Riots have broken-out at the University of Zambia over government decisions to increase bursaries forms from Kr10 to Kr50 with immediate.

Reports reaching the Watchdog are that the students have been taken unaware and  have since started rioting along Great East road.

Police have since closed the Great East road to protect motorists from the rioting students who are chanting “we want change”.

A huge bon-fire has been lit in the middle of Great East Road by the protest UNZA students.

Last semester, government never paid the students their money for projects allowances despite the typical PF style of having promised them before they closed.
