UNZA STUDENTS RECEIVE DEPLOYMENT OF SECURITY GUARDS WITH MIXED EMOTIONS

University of Zambia (UNZA) students have expressed mixed feelings over the deployment of security guards at the entry points of the institution.

Martin Mutale, a second year Economics student said in as much as the security deployment is a good move, it will limit students movement and access to the institution’s facilities as they will be required to produce a Student Identification card (ID) every time.

“I can not manage to show the security guards my ID each time am coming into campus, I mean what happens if I forget my ID? This is too crazy and restricting,” he said.

Meanwhile, Chilufya Banda a third year Social Work student claimed that the security measures are not effective, saying the security officers allow anyone to enter the campus without properly checking IDs.

“There is no security, these security guards do not even check the ID and I guess some people have entered the institution with fake IDs ,” Banda said.

However, UNZA Acting Chief Security Officer, Annia Zulu said that the presence of security guards has been done to restrict criminals from entering the highest learning institution.

Zulu said these measures have been put in place after a third year Levy Mwanawasa Medical University (LMMU) student was stabbed to death by unknown people at the institution in February.

“When a rule has been imposed, we expect students to comply, we have restricted entries to secure the campus and protect the student populace. Unless students comply with the rules put in place, the security will not be effective,” she said.

Zulu has since advised students to carry IDs to avoid been inconvenienced when accessing the premises.
