The use of demonstrations as a way of expressing grievances at higher institutions of learning is more than a growing phenomenon. When it comes to the expression of grievances by the University of Zambia (UNZA) students the use of demonstrations cannot be overemphasized. This is to say demonstrations are the order of the day whenever there is a misunderstanding between management and students.
Weird as they are, these outfits are more than just clothes. They are the brainchild of creative minds. They are voices. Put another way, these clothes are a form of advocacy.
WHAT happens when University of Zambia (UNZA) students graduate? Is UNZA just to be used as a stepping-stone and forgotten about? Where are the Alumni? The conditions at UNZA are now worse than what most of the Alumni found and yet they still remain silent. UNZA cannot improve without a collective effort. Many students have graduated from the institution since 1969 but how many, really, have taken the time to contribute anything to the improvement of UNZA?
