University of CCAP Blantyre Synod to open in Malawi this year – Rev Maulana

The Blantyre Synod of the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) has disputed allegations that the church was planning to evict Phoenix Primary School to pave way for the synod’s university scheduled to start in September this year.

Rev Maulana: University opens in September

Recent reports indicated that the Synod had served the school with a notice that it wanted to use the premises for a university.

But the synod’s General Secretary, Reverend Alex Maulana said the university use already existing structures within its premises.

“First let me say that indeed we are planning to open Blantyre Synod University this September and preparations are underway but our university will be located right there where there is our church, secondary school and primary school.

“We will use some existing structures within our premises but I can confirm that in future the church shall need the place where Phoenix primary is lending for other purposes like school and offices,” he said.

Added Maulana: “For a start, we do not need a big place since the Synod is planning to start with two Degree courses only.”

The CCAP Blantyre Synod was established in 1956, and the CCAP United Synod was formed in 1926.

The CCAP Blantyre Synod has many programs for youths, women and prisoners. It also provides many educational and health services under and has a development wing, known as the Blantyre Synod Health and Development Commission (BSHDC).

Since 1992, BSHDC has been implementing programmes within the geographical area of Blantyre Synod, which covers the whole southern region and some parts of the central region.-Mana

    Its important to have your schools in right places. Not primary school next to my house at Goliwo and you call it ‘New Wisdom private School.’

    These are residential plot not commercial plots. Ministry of Education please look into issues of education comprehensively.

    Spoken like a politician. Read the context that Phoenix will be chased out. The man of God says eventually they will need all the spaces. Phoenix, plan moving.

        Harry, yes a city like Tokyo, New York, Paris and London are big cities renowned for being cosmopolitan and multicutural. These are cities with a population over a million inhabitants, now compare to Blantyre with just 300thousand and how many have msce? There is huge compromise in Malawi
