Mzuzu University (Mzuni) has donated some IT equipment to Mzimba Secondary School, exciting the school officials and the Mzimba Secondary School Alumni Association (MSSAA).
The school headmaster, Timothy Kumwenda, informed MSSAA’s treasurer Beatrice Singini-Butao that Mzuni was giving one of Malawi’s and most celebrated oldest secondary schools, a set of laptops and thirty desktop computers.
“It is always a pleasure to be connected to people who matter on this earth more especially when they were at a school which they support. Thanks for the connection,” said Kumwenda, himself also the school’s alumnus.
Central Region MSSAA chapter chairperson, Maynard Kawamba praised God and said: “Hopefully this will inspire us to honour our beds pledge”.
The group pledged double deck beds to the school worth over MK2 million and have so far donated slightly over half that amount in two student inspiration visits they conducted in 2011 and this year.
MSSAA through the media, including Mzimba Community Radio Station, continues to plead to well wishers and donors including individuals and more alumni to come in and assist the school, which has few class blocks, insufficient learning and teaching materials.
“Our colleagues currently at the school are sleeping on beds that are dangerously old and some sleep on the floor. We implore everyone to come in and assist government and the MSSAA in bringing back the school’s glory. Together we can change the environment in which our children learn and therefore improve the quality of out future leaders,” said M’theto Lungu, MSSAA’s publicity secretary through an interview on the community radio station.
