Maranatha High School moves out of Keza Building

Maranatha International High School has moved out of Keza Building owing to pressure from parents’c concern over the school’s proximity to Chichiri Shopping Mall in Blantyre.

Managing Director for Marathana, Ernest Kaonga said the institution had moved from the Keza, formerly owned by ex Malawi President Bakili Muluzi to Chatha, Chileka about 10km from Blantyre City Centre.

Kaonga said it would also work to the school’s advantage as they would not be paying rentals being the schools own premises.

“We have moved and relocated to Chileka near Chatha. This is our own building and we are happy and we will no longer be paying rentals,’ Kaonga said.

“We would now be concentrating on upgrading our premises and equipping our school with modern equipment and books.”
He said the old premises at Keza did not affect the school’s performance because of proximity to Blantyre’s uptown shopping mall.

“The fact that Keza was close to Chichiri Shopping Mall did not affect the results. For instance we have 57 students who passed the Malawi School Certificate Examinations (MSCE) between six and 20 points,” he said.

“Next year we believe that we will be able to achieve about 90 percent pass rate within the same range.”

He said the institution was determined to improve the education standards so that the future generation should become productive.

“Our economy is currently in shambles. This is attributed to poor education standards as students do  not understand the basics of life. Maranatha will take students through life cyle.”

The relocation of Marathana Institute to Chatha, in Chileka should be good news as parents were not comfortable with the premises especially the female students.

    kodi kaonga yu kukhala ntumbuka walakwa, the good thing he works with everybody, may be you dont know him better, try visit him, he is cool and a gentleman, some of us have benefited alot from his programs, my brother was on scholarship managed 12 points and is at chancellor college.

    should u have a personal thing, go square it with him, the guy is stil going strong has been operating for some years now, nsanje zanu zizingokupwetekani, there are very few malawians who could really wish good a fellow malawian. mr kaonga you are a top drawer dont listen to these poor comments, they hav nothing to do but joulosy and gossiping. thumb up!”’

    The fact is the guy survived last year in Keza because of an injunction against an eviction order from the owners of the building. He was failing to pay rentals. Akuluwa achuluka ndi matama. He is failing to pay teachers and other staff members. His own sistser who was an administrator resigned and joined FDH Bank based at Luchenza because of his abuse. He is good at false advertisement. By the way, was MBC TV convinced that what they carried in their Chichewa 6pm bulletin yesterday was newsworthy that the Maranatha has relocated to Chatha and that it has done well in the MSCE exam results. If it was newsworthy, then cover all the other private schools that have done better than Maranatha. The problem is that some journalists receive money from these people to allow for free advertisement. MBC, take to task the editor who allowed that rubbish, ameneyo anadyapo ndithu

    I am happy Maranatha is finally out of Keza. The govt should take care of all resources including privately owned property. Everything is part of Govt resources.

  19. mwanamulanje says:

    Its you Maranatha whose economy is in shambles not for the country. That is a reason why migrating from town to countryside. Atumbuka simunaganeneko zabwino lerolokha.

  20. Wodandaula says:

    Why cant you just tell the nation the truth that you are in financial shambles and as such you are not able to meet the expenses rather than hiding behind the children’s parents. You have unsettled water, electricity etc bills.
