THE University of Zambia Lecturers And Researchers’ Union has expressed concern that some students may not write their final examinations that have started today as they have failed to pay 37.5 percent of the fees to the University of Zambia.
Union president DR. Evans Lampi has told journalists in Lusaka that several UNZA students may not be allowed to write their final exams owing to the failure to pay fees attributing the situation to the prevailing hash economic conditions.
Dr. Lampi says some students just attend classes without being registered and paying the required fees saying these are the ones who may be affected during the exams that started this today.
He says the union has discovered that quiet a number of them will not write because they confided in the lecturers about this development.
And Dr Lampi notes that the absence of a student’s union at the higher learning institution is equally making it difficult to address issues affecting learners.
