Students at University of Malawi (UNIMA) in Zomba have demonstrated over the continued suspension of online classes.

Last week the university extended the suspension of classes which were expected to resume today sighting the internet faults.

The development has angered students arguing that the continued suspension of classes is costly since they are spending money on meals and rentals without classes.

The students want management to close the school or resolve the internet challenges.

During the demonstrations, students closed the Saint Charles Lwangwa-Chanco road, forcing police to fire teargas to close the school.

UNIMA Registrar Mary Wasiri said last week that the university is facing logistical challenges in the procurement of the internet gadgets which are being imported from China.
