Civil rights activists have kick-started a Yellow-Card campaign against the continued closure of Copperbelt University (CBU), rampant corruption and misappropriation of funds by public servants.

The campaign, which is is being spearheaded by Alliance for Community Action (ACA) Executive Director Laura Miti, musician Chama Fumba better known by his stage name Pilato, and other civil and human rights activist, was suppose to start with a street protest but the police have refused to grant a permit.

And commenting on the protest which has been kicked off on social media by many users, Miti said the closure of CBU must anger all well meaning Zambians as the move is meant to deny young Zambians a chance at education.

“This government treats the education of young people people like an irritating cost. Like the way working relatives feel about feeding “John Solyes.” Education of the young is a critical investment. It is one of the most important duties of any government” Miti said in a statement.

Meanwhile another civil rights activist Brebner Changala has commended Miti and other organisers for calling for a yellow card campaign in light of the revelations of grand corruption contained in the 2018 FIC Trends Report, bad governance and indefinite closure of CBU.

“The spirit is moving. Keep your faith and spirit Laura and the Gang!! Service to mankind is a serious calling. The benefits are Eternal and Godly mum!!!” Changala congratulated Miti.
