The Higher Education Authority has deregistered 3 higher education institutions for abrogating various provisions of the Higher Education Act. The 3 deregistered are Citizen University, Pamodzi University and University of East and Southern Africa following audits conducted on the institutions.
Announcing the development at a media briefing in Lusaka today, Higher Education Authority Corporate Communications Officer, Birbal Musoba said Pamodzi University was deregistered on December 20th 2019 because the institution abrogated the higher education act no. 4 2013 part 4 section 23 (3) which mandates the authority to order closure of a private higher education institution where its proprietor failed to take remedial measures determined by the authority.
Mr. Musoba said for citizen university, the institution abrogated the Higher Education Authority Act no. 4 of 2013 part 4 section 23 (3) (1) (b) which mandates the authority to deregister a private higher education institution if it contravenes any term or condition of the certificate of registration or any provision of the Higher Education Act.
Further, Mr. Musoba says University of East and Southern Africa was deregistered for being closed for a period exceeding six months, in accordance with the provisions of the higher education act no. 4 of 2013 part 4 section 23 (1) (e).
