Speaking to this Publication, Menson said  he has been told by the institution authorities that he is not eligible to sit for this semester’s examinations due to the fees balance that has amounting to K150,000.

” I have been told that I have a fees balance of K150,000 and that am not eligible to sit for this semester’s examinations to begin on Monday until I clear the balance. Failure to do so, I will not sit for end of year examinations” he said.

Menson said he has failed to register as the institution’s student all this time because his mother who supports him cannot reach the standards of helping him with the school fees and other school necessities at once.

” I lost my father last year, hence my mother alone cannot reach the maximum of helping me for she has no stiff income sources. I have no  other relative to my academic needs. I feel lost and stranded due to this retarding  academic situation”, said Menson.

Alongside Menson, is Dickson Phiri, a second year student studying Bachelor of Science in Architectural studies who  also came out asking support from well wishers to square off his K112,000 tuition fee balance.According to Dickson, his parents cannot be able to settle the balance .

” My parents are incapable of the standards of paying me the tuition fee. So am seeking help from those whom can manage to help me”, said Dickson.

Like Menson,  if the situation remains the same, Dickson will not be able to sit for his examinations starting from next week.

The two have called on government, organizations and we’ll wishers to help them with he fees balances so as they write the examinations.
