Kamuzu College of Nursing (KCN) students who were arrested for allegedly causing violence in the fees hike demonstrations that took place at their campus have expressed concern over delayed justice delivery on their case.
On Monday morning, the 11 students reported to Lilongwe Magistrate’s Court for the case where the court told them that each student would be updated about the progress on the phone.
KCN Students Union President, Gift Banda, said the students are worried that they should just be waiting for a call.
“Yesterday all of them reported to Lilongwe Magistrate’s Court for ruling. At 9.30 am, the court ruled that each student will be told way forward over the phone. They reviewed the court terms and signed the consensus,” he said.
Banda said the students are not happy with the way forward as they want to see the case closed, saying it is affecting them psychologically.
“We are not happy because our expectation is to see this case closed as the students are disturbed psychologically waiting for a final answer. All in all, we are hopeful that sooner or later, the case will come to an end,” he said.
Among the conditions, the students were told to report to the Central Region Police Headquarters once a fortnight on Fridays and to produce a surety each with non-cash bond of K50,000.
