UNZA constructs parameter wall
By KALOBWE BWALYA
THE University of Zambia (UNZA) has started the construction of the three-kilometre parameter wall aimed at improving security.
UNZA Vice Chancellor, Professor Luke Mumba, said once completed, the fence would enhance the outlook of the university and improve security at the institution.
He was speaking during the official ground-breaking and laying of the foundation stone ceremony in Lusaka yesterday.
Prof Mumba thanked the government, through the Ministry of Local Government for funding the construction.
He said the funds for the construction were derived from a compensation arising from the land affected by the construction of the new road connecting Nangwenya and Kamloops roads.
Prof Mumba said this exposure has in turn brought about challenges in effectively providing security to the university and its important installations.
He said the developments had changed the outlook of the university and exposed the institution to a number of entrances into the campus.
“To secure the university from vandals and theft activities, management has embarked on a project of constructing a parameter wall fence around the university which is expected to be completed within three months.
