Mulunguzi alumni hold fundraising fair for former school

In a bid to raise K500 000 (about $768) for the rehabilitation of the Mulunguzi Secondary School, the Southern Region Chapter of the school’s Alumni on Monday held a family fair at Sports Complex in Blantyre.

Chairperson for the chapter, Reverend Moyenda Kanjerwa said the fundraising event was aimed at restoring the school “to its former glory”.

He said the school is in a dilapidated state and needs urgent rehabilitation.

“The situation is bad, desks are broken, walls are dirty, roofs are wrecked, some toilets are not working and kitchen equipment is not working properly. This is affecting students’ performance,” said Kanjerwa.

Activities included jumping castle for children, selling of second hand clothes and furniture auctioning.

George Malikebu one of the alumni said the event was “successful” and that they plan to hold other fund raising activities.

Some alumni of the school in diaspora formed Mulunguzi Trust to raise funds to help the dilapidated state of the government funded school.

“We engage in fund raising activities to pull resources together to refurbish the institution,” said Malembe Makawa a member of the Mulunguzi Trust based in Manchester, UK.

The school was opened in 1985 with all the necessary learning facilities including hostels, football pitch, basket ball and netball court, a hall, kitchen, teaching blocks and dormitories build under the World Bank’s IDA Project

The alumni wants to raise funds to renovate the school hostels, replace worn out fittings in the hostels, purchase additional chairs and desks for students, replace or service the cooking pots in the kitchen and buy books for the library or teaching.

This is a good initiative and also an encouragement to young student who are there now at the school. I think this can boost morale of the student to believe in themselves that life is possible with our school as a background. It should also do the same with football, Kinna Phiri should do likewise with Chamenade Sec School
Young Chimodzi should do it with his Sec school
Clement Kafwafwa should do it with Madisi Sec School. etc etc etc etc

Whaw! Wondeful initiative indeed, last time I visited the school was some ten years ago, I nearly cried bkoz I could no longer recognize the ‘Love Station’ pillar, the walkway that we used to walk to and fro prep, kosamula, and our beautiful hall, all classes are indeed in very bad shape. We are many that passed thru that walk-way and corridor that if we are to contribute generously towards that cause, we can do something worth remembering.

During my basic education period I committed a sin which still haunts me to this day even though I was young and stupid or should I say naive. Apparently I broke a grass window of one of the senior classes. What makes it worse is the fact that I never took accountability for my stupidity and run away. I am not the only one who committed this kind of transgression but I feel that my soul will be at peace once I have repaired the window I broke. The last time I passed by my former school, I noticed that… Read more »
