    APM deserves to be the fwe next Chancellor of UNIMA . And for those who think APM has achieved nothing since being sworn in as president, consider the following 5 achievements:
    1. Firing Gen. Odillo and replacing him with Maulana ;
    2. Firing John Bizwick and replacing him with Kamoto ;
    3. Firing Kelvin Mmangisa and re – instating Saukira ;
    4. Appointing Yunus Mussa to be ambassador to Egypt; and
    5. Kuveka ufumu wa Ngolongoliwa .

    Pamenepa nde wina aziti fwe, fwe , fwe .

    The President should advise both students and lecturers about HIV at the campus otherwise they will all perish. Only Post graduate and mATURE Entry students show the spirit of maturity but the rest especialLy undergraduate, I am afraid, we will lose them all due to HIV/AIDS. rEMEMBER THAT 59 FEMALE STUDENTS GOT PREGNANT DURING THE ACADEMIC FREEDOM SAGA. How many got the hiv/
    Your guess is as good as mine.

    Congra! But remind professors to come up with academic journals for citation by students in universities!

    We have these learned pple but no malawian journals found in the internet. Ummmmmmm

    1. JAke says:

      you are not closed in to just wait for Malawi journals, there are so many publications by Malawians on Malawi in international journals, use those for now. and there are a number of local journals available as well, do your search diligently

    kkkkkkk chancellor was academic madness. Nyasaland dzikolatu

  10. Chingwe Chambuzi says:

    How stupid and irresponsible can we be to install the very same person who presided over the 8 month closure of CHANCOL just a few years ago while he was the minister responsible for education as our chancellor? It hurts!

    In the words of the bard from Strattford Upon Avon ” Thou monster ignorance, how deformed dost thou look?”

  11. Rasta says:

    Nyasa Times please contact the registrar for correct figure of graduates since 1965. Its not right to state statistics without proper quotes. This article is being viewed by people all over the world. Zinazi ndi zoyenera kusitha. President ali ndi ntchito kale zochuluka ndiye sangapange concentrate pau Chancellor. Ofunika kumupatsa u vice kuti avimva vothaitha. Ngati Univeristy ya boma palibe development imene ikuchitilka. Too much in-fighting ya ma professor. Too many personal project, lectures enriching themselves. All we need is transparency and accountability of science and innovations that are taking place in all universities. People are chewing donor funded money with releasing technologies. People are publishing in international journals without informing their own people what they got. I mean even those we collect data from. This is crap and it is the role of the public to influence that policy change. Public Research Institutions and Universities should work together for visible development in Malawi. We are all failing and the university is failing in most aspects such as embracing information and communication technology to advance good ideas to local citizens. We should adopt new methods where willing professors should go in the villages to conduct rural development as what happens in developed countries. We should not just rely on out-date traditional knowledge and say that Malawi will change for better without out intellectual action. Mr. President has the taste of it and should lead by good example to change the entire education systems to suite our needs for development.

    What are your views folks?

  12. klopp says:

    When people are given positions, it suits others while to others its just a mockery to the position…. HKB, BWM and APM deserves these positions and it suits them. The rest were a disgrace…….wont mention their names.

    1. Mkandawire says:

      Nanu inu muziyenda and be exposed. Imeneyonso ndinkhani? Go to these world prestigious universities and see how they operate. The fear of unknown for a change is retrogressive. Go to Oxford mukaone ngati ma students amaima panzere ndikulandira nyemba. Iiishi!

      1. idah Nyamwale says:

        Dumb, you are comparing oxford students and a son from a poor farmer from namileme who is on gov scholarship getting 30 pin a month ya zakudya including transport from poly to chichiri everyday? Zikundiwawa!

  14. Tengupenya says:

    Is it statutory that all state universities in Malawi will install the Head of State as their Chancellors?

      Lufina thats a blue lie UNIMA for the past 40 years has been admitting 800 students i mean 800 in all their colleges, the number has just increased in 2011 to close to 1700 students this university is a big shame to produce such a very low numbers 50 yrs after independence!!!! even if it was true it has produced 20,000 graduates after independence is that not still very shameful to be associated with???? ma very ashamed to be associated with UNIMA, infact i have ever worked at Chancellor College, nothing to celebrate here, peter should prepare his much energy on how to fix the economy and not wasting his time with graduations, what we need now is how the kwacha will gain its value again, am forced to believe that Malawi is a one of the country with so many PHD holders but very clueless on how to fix the economy, PHD is nothing but a peice of paper which in Malawi simply reflects how much u have memorized in school, that is why we still import toothbrush, toopick, useless country called malawi

      1. JAke says:

        that has nothing to do with PhD holders! its a shame for the whole country including you. why don’t you start a tooth brush factory yourself, or toothpick factory? that’s my point we are good at whining not acting, no wonder we have a hotel finished three years ago and not being used, we have a university built in somebodies village and we have civil servants and politicians stealing half of the countries budget, we are an embarrassment to Gods creation. we are to blame nobody else,

      2. Mkandawire says:

        Jealous at its peak.
