BLANTYRE--Classes at the Malawi Catholic University (Cunima) are expected to resume Monday, two weeks after it was shut down following threats by students to hold demonstrations to prevent four students from being suspended.
The four are said to have organized fellow students to protest acute water shortage at the Cunima.
The students claimed the campus had dry taps for longer period, forcing them to draw water from boreholes which they used to fill cistern tanks so they could use toilets in hostel.
The protests didn’t go down well with the Vice Chancellor Professor Anaclet Phiri who allegedly suspended the four students.
It’s not clear at this time whether the university has addressed the problem of water shortage.
