STUDENTS at the Zambia Institute of Business Studies and Industrial Practice (ZIBSIP) in Kitwe yesterday staged a protest over alleged poor administration at the institution.
The students blocked Kantanta Street where the college is situated, forcing motorists to use alternative routes.
ZIBSIP is a Government training institution.
Police officers however, managed to control the irate students who were demanding that management addresses challenges facing the institution.
ZIBSIP student's union president Childron Mweemba said the institution was experiencing erratic water supply and sanitation problems.
Mr Mweemba said students were aggrieved by the lack of lectures as some classes have had no lessons for several months.
"We are facing a lot of problems at this institution but management is not addressing the situation. Sanitation is pathetic, there is erratic water supply and our classrooms are not conducive for learning," he said
Mr Mweemba said students were not happy with the manner management was handling their grievances and appealed to Government to send qualified lecturers at the institution.
But ZIBSIP training manager Francis Bwalya urged the students to exhaust all the channels of communication before protesting.
Mr Bwalya said management was addressing the challenges despite financial constraints that the institution was facing.
