The death of Vespers has sparked a lot of controversy regarding police conduct. Though the media’s attention was stolen sorely on the sad death of Vespers, she was not the only victim of the UNZA Riot police conduct.
Everntyn Chongo sustained a spinal injury and also broke both legs as she jumped from the third floor of her hostel which was on fire during a riot on Thursday at the University. The government has evacuated a second-year University of Zambia (UNZA) student to South Africa for specialised spinal treatment.
Everntyn was admitted to the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka. Minister of Health Chilufya Chitalu oversaw the evacuation around midnight.
