Fourteen students at the Copperbelt University (CBU) have been identified as riot leaders, CBU Vice Chancellor Naison Ngoma has revealed.
He said the 14 students would be investigated and those found wanting would be expelled.
Professor Ngoma said management had made significant progress in meeting some of the conditions set for reopening of the institution of higher learning.
He said management had to meet the six conditions the Ministry of Higher Education set for reopening the institution.
Prof. Ngoma said management was just waiting for the inspectorate committee set up to inspect what had been done and make their recommendations.
He revealed that security at the two gates had been enhanced while security cameras had been installed in strategic places to monitor the inflow of people entering the campus.
Prof Ngoma also revealed that students’ commitment forms had been devised which all returning students would sign before being readmitted.
And Kitwe district commissioner Chanda Kabwe said he was happy that management at the institution of learning was ahead of schedule in reopening the institution.
Mr. Kabwe said it was the wish of Government to ensure that the institution reopened as soon as possible.
