“After developing an application we move into building a network and in order for us to achieve faster productivity we have realised that we need to train locals to do the job. I therefore present to you Your Excellency, scholarships that will see young Malawians study ICT so that they shall become the seed for the future development of technology in Malawi,” said Xu.

In his remarks Mutharika hailed China for its contribution to the education, health, infrastructure development and ICT sector.

“As government we really appreciate the contribution China is making in areas of education, health, ICT development. I have personally interacted with Malawian students who are studying in this country. Let me also particularly thank Huawei for their gesture. As government we appreciate this support,” Mutharika said.

APM has rekindled this defrauding channel that was started by his brother. So what projects have Huawei asked for this time, your excellency? Some people never learn. Who said we need scholarships? We have enough training here it’s the job creation that you should crack your brains on sir! The Chinese shouldn’t create employment for their masses through you Bwana. Please show some compassion. Mukutidyera kale masuku pamutu!
