Students at the college protested the delayed payment of book and stationary allowances and tuition fees.
The demonstrations ended in chaos as the students allegedly lined up along the Masauko Chipembere highway and pelted stones at vehicles forcing the Police to fire tear gas at them to break the demonstrations.
The situation was eventually calmed down by the law enforcers.

While blaming the law enforcers for being too heavy handed, the president of the students union at the Polytechnic Evance Moola, says the protests have paid dividends.
