Meeting members of the organising committee of the celebration at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe on Thursday, Mutharika said the History of Malawi cannot be complete without mentioning the works of the church and its founders who helped in the liberation of the country.

He said that 125 year is worth cerebrating and encouraged the church to continue its works of supporting the Government in the departments of Education, Health and Sports.

“We are very grateful to the Mutharika family for always supporting the Blantyre Synod, in 2010, the Later President Bingu WA Mutharika also graced the 100 years Celebrations of the Henry Henderson Institute (HHI) where he made the donation of a vehicle and paid all the cost of the clothing.

“And now to have President Peter Mutharika, it will be the repeating and making the history. We are very happy with the interest the President has shown in the celebration by accepting invitation first hand,” he said.

According to Singo, the celebrations will start on the 14th May with Sporting activities at the Henery Henderson Secondary School Ground and the next day on Sunday service will start at 10: 00am where the President will be asked to plant a M’bawa Tree to mark the history of the celebrations and there after he is expected to read the scripture from the New Testament from the Book of Matthew Chapter 5 vs. 13-15.

    Henry Henderson Secondary School (we knew it as H. H. Institute). The institution is a jewel to our country. Ditto even for the building itself: a unique piece of construction engineering.
    In terms of history: our colonialism was but “soft”; compared to the variety that existed next door, in Mozambique. In contrast to the Mozambicans, “Nyasalanders” were having a Hawaiian vacation, albeit with significant stress!
    Its mother organisation, Blantyre Mission, was a magnate to the African literati of the day. Many trained there as teachers, and as men and women of the collar; and influenced the country in various ways. Good ways, to be sure.
    And many aLhomwe, escaping atrocities in PEA (now Moz.) found the place a refuge for mere survival, and a place to stimulate their minds too. And some of the aLhomwe leaders thrived right there at Blantyre Mission and Henry Henderson Institute.

    And HHI, as it was known then, was the center of education in the South, before Mulanje Mission and others. H. H. I. even had a Night School, where those who worked during the day could attend classes at night. To advance themselves and the families. Also of relevance is number of people who pasted thru H. H. I., and contributed to this country at the high levels.
    One of them being B wa Mutharika himself.
    The thanks are never ending.

    Disclosure: Many years ago as students at BSS, across the creek, we used to admired the H. H. I. students. They seemed to have as much, if not more desire to learn, and expand their scope just as we had. There was no evidence of rivalry or animosity; only harmony.

    Not to disappoint APM, so that he still knows our begging tradition is still in fashion: may I ask him to please foot the whole bill? The bill can easily pass for “pocket money” for a Professor Emeritus in Law at Washington University. This would show the appreciation for how his family was blessed – the Mutharikas, mother and father, and the siblings. And we may never have two brothers as Presidents of Malawi again!
    Two Mutharikas celebrating the same principles at the same place for the same organization, representing the Malawi Government. Now, that’s special.
    Whose wish is that, if you believe in God?
