University of Malawi student leaders meet over #feesmustfall action

University of Malawi student leadership meets this Thursday for a final decision on whether to stop protests or not following the reduction of the college fees by K50 000.Unima fee must fall

University of Malawi (Umsu) vice president Godfrey Pumbwa said the student leaders met on Saturday in Mangochi to discuss President Peter Mutharika’s directive a few weeks ago to reduce the fees.

“We agreed that each student should participate in the decision making on whether we should allow the K50 000 fees drop or we should go ahead with other means to force the government reduce the fees further.

“ We have asked the students to make their contributions through email so on Thursday we will meet and see what the students. We don’t want to make decisions for the students,” said Pumbwa.

State House press officer Mgeme Kalilani says the government will be subsdizing K1 billion a year after the K50000 fees slash.

Some students, including Chancellor College students union president Ayuba James said the fees reduction was too little.

  1. Iwe Phumbwa uzikadya kachare kwanu ndipo iwe Ayuba (ISIS) kalowe gulu la NYAU (ISIS) kwanu ku Ntchisi. Ku Zomba sikwanu uli ndi maganizo a BOKO HARAMU ndi ISIS ndiye usationongere Town yathu ya Zomba. Will also lobby all Zomba residents that this college be demolished and demarcate land for locals. I expect all of them to buy the idea positively due to the new Land Bill which will make them posses the land you are spoiling now. Or will lobby that everyone be expelled from Chanco and let authorities take time say 3 or 4 years slowly rehabilitating it for fresh students in 2020 intake like what happened with KONGWE in Dowa..everyone was expelled. You think we care about you..you have nothing in your dull brains..just ka MSCE ka LIKASA komwe uli nako ndiye muzitibowa nako ngati ndinu ma graduate ..FOOLS…people have papers go round in many homes you will be shocked….akukuputsitsani ndi kamCHEWA kopusa kanabera ka accent ya America kaja. A stupid fool. Ask him to go to Oxford and give a public lecture. He will be laughed at…speaking pegion english….Oxford tells you on registration never imitate anybody’s accent because english is not your mother language..
