A third year student at University of Malawi’s Chancellor College in the eastern city of Zomba, Paul Macheso thinks Malawi has the potential of developing economically through the use of locally available resources as he invents an incubator aimed at improving poultry farming.
Macheso has set a record in his career path as a Bachelors of Education Science majoring in Physics and Electronic with a minor in Mathematics by innovating a working poultry incubator with materials he acquired locally and his knowledge.
While testing his incubator, the youthful and calm Chancellor College intellectual noted that his innovation has a 92% hatch rate.
Macheso who hails from Kanyambwe Village, Traditional Authority Kalolo in Lilongwe believes that this innovation can help the country’s farmers who have a liking of poultry to improve on their production rate at an affordable cost without drying their coffers with exported incubators which are costly to purchase and maintain when the country has the expertise .
So far, Macheso is using his incubator to hatch some quills as an appreciation of his own work .
However, Macheso lamented that the young people of his caliber in the country are frustrated when they see their dreams dying a natural death by lack of support by the government and other stakeholders to capitalize on their innovations to reach more people who could benefit from such inventions.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
