Students at Zomba Islāmic High School on Friday went on rampage during breakfast due to poor food the school is serving them.
The students have smashed windows and other property claiming the Boarding Master of the school ‘is taking us for granted’.
“Our school has been giving us poor food. We have been complaining to the authorities but to no avail. They were just ignoring our concern,” one student who opted for anonymity confided with Malawi Muslims Official Website.
The student further said that the action has been taken as one way of showing anger to the management so that a swift action should be taken.
The school’s Principal, Wyson Jafar has since confirmed the development but he could not give more information about the incident.
However, reports indicate there is disarray in the school’s management with some members of staff tussling over leadership positions. Therefore, it is alleged that the some ‘opportunists’ are instigating students to revolt against the administration to find loop holes in advancing their agenda.
The school which is owned by the Muslim Association of Malawi MAM is in a dilapidated state because it has never been renovated since its construction in 1983.
This rampage comes at a time when MAM is asking Muslims in the country to contribute towards its goal of renovating the school.
