Minister of Higher Education Nkandu Luo says government does NOT owe University of Zambia students any meals and project allowances.
Professor Luo says only nine students were not given their allowances because they registered late but that funds have since been made available.
She has explained that the Nine students will be paid once they register for the 2017 to 2018 academic year.
And Professor Luo has warned students with riotous behaviour that government will not hesitate to expel them.
She says government will not condone hooliganism and destruction of property by students over allowances.
The Minister said this when responding to a question from Mazabuka Member of Parliament Garry Nkombo who wanted to know how much money in meal and project allowances, the government owes the University of Zambia students.
