Apex university to reopen on Monday

Lusaka Apex Medical University: File Picture

LUSAKA Apex University will reopen on Monday and all students will be compelled to sign commitment forms stating that they will refrain from riotus behavior, says university Vice Chancellor Proffesor Lupando Munkonge.

The university was closed indefinitely on Monday, January 16, 2017 after students ran amok demanding that management should slash transport fees among other issues.

The students later issued a statement signed by union president Major Tembo, apologizing to management for their conduct.

In a statement released in Lusaka today, January 18, 2017, Prof Munkonge stated that students would undergo a strict procedure before being readmitted when the university opens on Monday.

“The University wishes to inform students, parents, sponsors and partners that the University is re-opening on Monday January 23, 2017.

However, returning students must apply to be re-admitted into the university by indicating their computer number faculty and all students shall sign a copy of University rules and regulations of the institution,” stated Prof Munkonge.

“All students shall further sign a copy of students commitment form for non-riotous behaviour and newly admitted students will continue with the normal registration and their orientation process.”
