The Copperbelt University which was recently closed indefinitely reopened today.

And the Copperbelt University Students Union (COBUSU) is excited about the reopening of the institution.

COBUSU President Humphrey Mwenya has told Qfm News that the students have begun attending lectures, while lecturers are conducting lectures.


Mr. Mwenya says the union is grateful to government for intervening in the standoff between management and the lectures at the second highest learning institution in the country.

He has however advised government to in future act promptly and not wait until the situation worsens.

He says the students are hopeful that a similar impasse that would affect the academic calendar will not happen in the future.


Mr. Mwenya states that what transpired at CBU was uncalled for and has the potential to spill over to other institutions, thus such situations should be avoided at all cost.

He has promised that students will remain peaceful and will concentrate on their education as they are already behind as a result of the closure.
