CBU expels COBUSU president for illegal cancellation of classes 


THE Copperbelt University (CBU) has expelled its students union president for illegally cancelling classes after the death of two students back in June.

Castro Mulilo has confirmed his own expulsion from CBU in a statement.

Back in June, two students, Thabo Mumbi and Bwalya Christian Henschel, tragically lost their live after speeding vehicle ran them over as they walked to their boarding house after classes.

Following the accident, Mulilo as Copperbelt University Students Union president announced the cancellation of classes so that students could mourn their departed colleagues.

However Mulilo’s action did not sit well with the institution which resolved to kick him out after a disciplinary procedure.

In a statement yesterday, Mulilo said the cancellation of classes was a move intended to gather students to condemn looting and mourn the tragic loss of their two fellow students.

The university administration subsequently approved the cancellation of classes as a mark of respect for the deceased students, setting the stage for the conflict that followed.

In response to his expulsion, Mulilo expressed his gratitude for the support he received during his tenure as COBUSU President.

He highlighted the sacrifices leaders often make and acknowledged the repercussions of his actions on his academic journey, his family, and even the government sponsorship he was receiving.

“As one who reached [his] final year, my family and friends are definitely not happy with this development because they invested so much in my academics in order to reach in [the] final year today.”

“Being on a HELSB (Higher Education Loans and Scholarship Board) sponsorship, I believe it’s a loss to government too. However, as a leader I haven’t lost because sacrifice or being sacrificed is part of leadership” stated Mulilo
