NUL students face theft charges

MASERU – THREE National University of Lesotho (NUL) students are facing theft charges for stealing timber and tyres during protests that rocked the university last week.
According to the police spokesperson, Superintendent Mpiti Mopeli, the police arrested the students last week after they allegedly stole the tyres and timbers for burning during their protest.
The students burnt them at the university gate last Wednesday. At the time of going to print Mopeli said he did not have an update of their case.
“For that reason, I am not sure whether they have appeared in courts or whether they are still in police custody,” he said.

Last Tuesday, the students protested, complaining about the National Manpower Development Secretariat (NMDS)’s delay to pay their allowances.
During the protest, the students boycotted classes, trashing the campus.
They also blocked the main Maseru-Roma road where they piled up tyres and timber and burned them at the roads as well as at the school gate, obstructing the flow of traffic in that
area.

After the protest, the senior management of the university issued a statement in which they said the protest had not been triggered by delays by the NMDS in releasing of the funds.
The university said the riots were organised by anarchists, some of whom investigations indicate were not students.
