Nankhumwa speaks out on attack of Poly students by street kids


Leader of opposition Kondwani Nankhumwa who is also Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Vice President for the South has asked the Tonse Alliance government act on reports of street kids attacking students from Malawi University of Business and Applied Sciences (MUBAS), formerly known as Polytechnic.

Nannkhumwa made the appeal in Parliament when making his closing remarks.

“I appeal to the government to do something about the rising menace on the students of MUBAS (formerly the Polytechnic) coming from ‘Ana a Masikini’. Cases of MUBAS students being attacked by street kids on their way to and from school at MUBAS have reached alarming levels. This is a troubling issue, which has the potential to snowball out of control if left unattended.

“We have always said these street children are a breeding ground for criminals, and it is unfortunate that the problem is playing out in front of our very own eyes, and on unsuspecting students,” said Nankhumwa.

Recently, unknown thugs purportedly to be street kids attacked three students from MUBAS.

It is said that the children went away with laptops and cell-phones of the victim.
