Evelyn Hone students protest against sugar daddies

Several students at Lusaka's Evelyn Hone College on Sunday night staged a demonstration against married men who were allegedly frequenting the learning institution to pick up female students for sexual favours.

The students were protesting the death of their female colleague, a computer studies student identified as Zodie Dube, who drowned together with her married lover, Elijah Zulu at Manchinchi Bay Lodge in Siavonga last Thursday evening.

The riled students threw missiles and stones at cars that tried to enter the learning institution’s campus accusing drivers of soliciting sexual favours from innocent female students there.

They accused married men, infamously referred to as investors, of frequenting the college to lure vulnerable young female students with all sorts of presents and money in exchange for illicit affairs and sexual favours.

Evelyn Hone College Students Union (ECHOSU) president Marvin Kapenda who confirmed the disturbances to Post Online, while regretting Dube’s death, accused female students indulging in illicit activities of damaging the dignity of the institution.

”First of all I want to appeal to these same ‘investors’ who rush here to lure our female colleagues. They should find some other ventures where they can invest their money.
They leave their wives and children just to come and disturb other people’s children,” Kapenda said. “It’s a shameful thing!”

He said the “investors” needed to realize that the reason students went to the learning institution was to be able to have a good future.

“To my female colleagues, please let’s respect ourselves and our families. What has happened is both sad and damaging to the image of this college,” said Kapenda.
“Apart from jeopardizing academics, this is contributing to the high rise in the HIV/AIDS cases.”

He attributed the students’ vulnerability to the high levels of poverty in the country and called on the government to increase the allocation of bursaries to assist the students reduce on similar incidents.

According to sources at Machinchi Bay Lodge, Dube had accompanied Zulu on who was employed by ZAMBIA Revenue Authority (ZRA) as customs officer. Both died on Thursday night as Dube was teaching Zulu how to swim but drowned.
