Drama has continued at the Copperbelt University (CBU) with Unionised Workers now declaring they will not resume work when the University re-opens until Vice Chancellor Prof. Ngoma is removed. Speaking on behalf of the Unionised Workers, Dr. Derrick Ntalasha accused Prof. Naison Ngoma of illegally charging and suspending Unionised Workers who are calling for his removal from the institution. He said despite stakeholder unions making efforts go write to the Care Taker Committee which is in charge of running affairs of the Copperbelt University highlighting problems at the institution, Prof. Ngoma has continued to suspend Unionised Workers and placing them on half salaries. “We, as labour leaders, are extremely concerned with these developments because even when the University is ready to reopen there will be no one to attend or teach the students. We will not be intimidated by the illegal suspensions but will continue to call for his removal if his conscious will not tell him to resign,” Dr Ntalasha said. He said allowing Prof. Ngoma at the University will derail the re-opening of the Copperbelt University as Unionised Workers have resolved not to get back to work as long as he continues as Vice Chancellor. “Prof. Ngoma is clearly telling the whole national that he has powers to have the Copperbelt University closed until he deals with the members of staff who legally attended a joint union meeting. “The University is failing to open not because the government is not helping the vice chancellor but because Prof. Ngoma does not value education and the lives of many young Zambians in dare need of University Education,” he added Dr Ntalasha has further cautioned that it will be dangerous for any right thinking parent to send their children to CBU with Prof. Ngoma at the helm as that will see continued disruptions in learning as always.
