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.

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.
