The government is yet to come up with a final position regarding the fate of students of the University of Malawi’s Polytechnic.

The school was closed last Wednesday following riots by the students after they disagreed with their management over upkeep allowances and school fees.

The move by the students attracted a backlash from the public, who argued that there was no point in disturbing the flow of traffic and stoning motor vehicles on issues that can be amicably resolved.

Speaking to Capital FM, some of the students pointed out that the government, through the education ministry has shown total disregard of their welfare by failing to disburse the allowances on time.

Polytechnic has fifteen departments offering undergraduate degrees in accounting, business administration, management, civil, mechanical and electrical engineering, architecture and land management, environmental management, computing and information technology, journalism, language and communication, mathematics and statistics, physics and biochemical sciences, technical education and quantity surveying.

Polytechnic offers postgraduate programs in business administration, infrastructure development and transport management in response to the emerging needs of the industry and the pressure from the native baccalaureate graduates

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace.
