Following this development, the Ambassador can now be addressed as Major General Dr. Reuben Ngwenya.

The topic of his thesis was “Effective Collaborative Leadership among Security Actors to achieve sustainable national security and prosperity in Malawi,” of which its overall goal was to develop a holistic strategic national security policy to guide effective collaboration and make Malawi the most peaceful and prosperous country in Africa.

Ine kudabwa, why is it that munthu akapeza Phd ndi Bolton university kumakhala kulengeza kwa m’nanu ngati kuti university ndi yokhayi pa dziko lapansi. Is it because an empty tin makes alot of noise? U look at the areas of concentration; knowledge mgt, change mgt etc, u tend to wonder kuti what value wll the knowledge gained add to Malawi being an agro based country? Za mkutu basi, za zii!

Congrats Dr. Ngwenya.Eventhough your dreams come true,we are waiting to observe your contribution to the nation.Since independence,we have produced tons of so called PH Ds ,but a tiny of them have contributed their talents to our nation.The overwhelming majority have either trekked to the green pastures or remain in the country and join the useless and corrupt burocratic establishments.However,once again,I wish you all the best and good luck in your endeavours to build our beloved Malawi.

Voted the worst in 2012 (at the bottom of UK institutions of higher learning. Currently ranked 121 out of 126 (see Wikipedia about this university). Still, we can’t compare with our UNIMA (kikiki). and congrats Dr Ngwenya for earning this degree.
