THE go slow by lecturers at Mulungushi University in Kabwe yesterday entered day two forcing management to send back the distance education students who were in their second week of the residential programme.

The lecturers are demanding for a salary increment of more than nine per cent which management had offered.

The lecturers who abandoned lectures are demanding for a 21 per cent salary increment which is believed to have been offered to the management staff.

Earlier in the morning the Vice-Chancellor Professor Helicey Ng’ambi addressed the students over the situation.

Prof Ng’ambi called on the students to remain calm as lectures would commence by afternoon and in an event that the lecturers did not troop back to classes, students were expected to leave campus by Saturday morning.

A check at the main campus in the afternoon yesterday revealed that some students were leaving for various destinations as lectures had not resumed as promised.

Students talked to complained that they had been inconvenienced by management’s failure to find an amicable solution to the standoff.
