Scores of Primary school pupils from Lunzu and surrounding areas have blocked the M1 road along the Lunzu area, chanting anti-government songs and stoning vehicles.

Currently no vehicle is passing through the area and police have just arrived at the scene to control the situation.

The pupils are protesting against teachers’ strike and are demanding that government pay the teachers now.
