The University of Malawi students disciplinary committee has penned Ekari Orama Mathuka and six others to face the committee on 20th October, 2022 on allegations that they subjected Student Representative Council Speakers to barbaric treatment including sexual harassment during yesterday’s meeting
This follows the release of the memorandum on Thursday,13 October 2022 from the office of Speaker which claims that the the speakers were subjected to harassment.
Speaking to Chanco News, the Deputy Speaker of University of Malawi students Association (UNIMASA) Parliament, Ethel Tambulasi confirmed about the development saying Mathuka and the other students have been called following their unacceptable acts against the speakers.
“Officials from administration called us to know what was happening, we even don’t know how the administration communicated with the ones who are seen to be ring leaders and they are called for a disciplinary meeting,” Tambulasi Said.
Tambulasi further challenged that the development has potential of silencing anyone who would want to speak about the general assembly on academic calendar.
Commenting on the matter, Ekari Orama Mathuka has said he cannot speak much on the issue.
” The charge sheet I have seen has no any sexual harassment case for any of the seven students,” Mathuka says.
Meanwhile, students in different Social media platforms are angered by the conduct of the office of the speaker threatening that if something happens to the seven the Speakers will be responsible.
