13 students from Evelyn Hone College Arrested for unlawful protesting

During an illegal gathering at the Ministry of Science and Technology offices, thirteen Evelyn Hone College students were detained.

The gathering of students is thought to have been in an effort to protest their three-year suspension for allegedly cheating on an exam.

The students gathered today around noon, according to police deputy spokesperson Danny Mwale, and have been accused of engaging in conduct that is likely to disturb the peace.

Three of the 13 pupils who have been detained, according to Mr. Mwale, are female.

“Initial investigations indicate that the students were all suspended from College for a period of three years after being caught in Examination Malpractice. It is alleged that the Students were airing out their grievances to the Ministry for not allowing them write examinations,” he said.
