LILONGWE--The Malawi Institute of Journalism(MIJ) students have no interest in returning to classes if the administration doesn't provide them with the necessary tools to learn.
The students, walked out of class Monday, sayin they need cameras and other equipment.
Limbani Manyamba, a student, said a camera is an important tool for journalism students.
"Right now we don't have even a single camera and yet we are paying the fees, it's the same as just staying at home and you wake up one day to say I am a journalist without [the] skills," Manyamba said.
The principal of the institution Alfread Banda acknowleded the need to provide their students with equipment and hoped for positive feedback from MIJ-Blantyre where the school's director is based.
"We did communicate with the director and she say she will settle it out but until now we see nothing," he said.
The president of the students union at MIJ Memory Nkosi said they have heard enough from management.
"Now we are not listening to their stories anymore," said Nkosi. "We are tired."
