Daily Nation Newspaper - - KOPALA NEWS -

By ROGERS KALERO THE go-slow by Cop­per­belt Uni­ver­sity (CBU) lec­tur­ers and aca­demi­cians has ended af­ter they were paid their Septem­ber salaries last Fri­day.

CBU Aca­demics Union (CBUAU) vice-pres­i­dent Alex Mwango con­firmed that the goslow which started last Thurs­day fiz­zled out on Fri­day evening af­ter the lec­tur­ers were paid their salaries.

Mr Mwango said in an in­ter­view in Kitwe yes­ter­day that the lec­tur­ers staged a go-slow af­ter man­age­ment de­cided to spend money to travel to Robert Makasa Uni­ver­sity in Chin­sali for a grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony of less than 100 stu­dents.

"While the lec­tur­ers had not been paid their salaries, the man­age­ment de­cided to go for a grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony of less than 100 stu­dents at Robert Makasa Uni­ver­sity in Chin­sali where we are told they spent mil­lions of Kwacha. This did not go very well with our mem­bers and so the go-slow.

“How­ever, the go-slow has ended af­ter our mem­bers were paid their salaries. So we are go­ing backto work on Mon­day," Mr Mwango said.
