Now Dr Chilima: VP at the University of Bolton after attaining his Ph

Mutharika said in a message of congratulations posted on his Facebook page after Chilima, who has been studying with the university through the Malawi Institute of Management (MIM) in Lilongwe since 2011, on Monday defended his doctoral thesis at University of Bolton and successfully finished it to become Dr Saulos Chilima.

The President said he, together with First Lady Gertrude Mutharika, was proud of Chilima’s achievement in attaining the prestigious doctorate degree.

“It is the essence of Gordon B. Hinckley’s words that you have imprinted on Malawi’s next generation ‘do your best and be a little better than you are’. We are proud of you; may God continue to bless you,” said Mutharika.

According to Press officer for the Office of the Vice-President, Pilirani Phiri, Chilima, who holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in economics from the University of Malawi’s Chancellor College, had been studying for his Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Knowledge Management since 2011.

The university was voted worst in 2012 (of all in the U.K), it fully became an university in 2004 when it was established in 1982! It is currently on number 121 out of the best 126 universities. Well, congrats Dr Saulos Claus Bolton Chilima.

Bolton University? Not Oxford or Cambridge then. Bolton is a former mill town in Lancashire in the north west of England and only very recently became a university town. It is very low down in the pecking order of universities in the UK. A PhD from Bolton University has very little value in the academic world. Only in a country like Malawi where any educational qualification is considered an achievement (even Form 4 MSCE) will this doctorate have kudos. If I were Mr Chilima I would be more embarrassed than proud of a PhD from Bolton Uni.
