Malawi’s leading online news source, Nyasa Times is this year celebrating a milestone after a decade of existence serving Malawians and the world at large as a reliable news output.
In addition to building an award-winning online publishing platform, Nyasa Times has over the past decade redefined what it means to be a global local news source working on the internet for Malawi at home and in the Diaspora.
In commemorating the 10th anniversary, Nyasa Times will mark the occasion with a sumptuous banquet that will be dictated by pomp, glitz and glamour.
The red carpet event, which is being billed to be one of the most unforgettable events of all times will play host to the guests with a bountiful full-buffet and an avalanche of roof-bursting entertainment, is expected to be held at the magnificent Hilton Hotel, which is situated at the heart of Leeds City centre.

Kalumpha disclosed there will be a humble entry to the function – all enjoying VIP treatment – but emphasized that further details will be communicated later in due course.
“I am so honoured to have been given such a huge responsibility. Nyasa Times is one of the biggest media technological innovations of this generation and to have come in this decade for our country. Through Nyasa Times, Malawians and people from other walks of life have been informed, educated and entertained,” said London-based Kalumpha.
