This has been disclosed by UNIMA’s assistant registrar (Communication and Marketing), Peter Mitunda.

Mitunda said in a statement made available to Nyasa Times that five parades by cohorts of graduates streamlined by a period of a decade from 1965, will march to the tune of the Malawi Police Service and Malawi Defence Force brass bands from the Blantyre Civic Centre to Kamuzu Stadium.

He said activities at the stadium will include conferment of honorary degrees, floats of scholarly exhibitions by students and lecturers as well as floats of UNIMA alumni symbolizing collaboration with society.

“A documentary cataloguing the life journey of the University of Malawi in its 50 years of existence; Netball and football matches between UNIMA veterans and current students, and launching of the UNIMA flag and Unima anthem,” the statement reads/

To curtain-raise the climax of the celebrations, Mitunda said an International Conference and Gala Ball will take place at Hotel Victoria from September 24 to 25.

According to Mitunda, a Thought Leadership Dialogue will be held at Chancellor College from September 30 to October 1.

    I wish they could come up with a book containing names of all those who passed through UNIMA. The book could be sold at a profit. While it is true that standards have gone down at UNIMA mainly due to quota system and pallarell programmes, the fact still remains that UNIMA is still better than the so called Private Universities. I know that those talking ill of UNIMA are students or graduates of there University equivalents and they are saying that because of inferiority complex. In their lives they never dreamt that they were going to have a degree and so it is a way of saying “taonani mumaona ngati mwatsogola, lero tafanana” but what you should know is that UNIMA is by far better!

    If you want you can put a picture of Bakali Muluzi or his son Atupele Muluzi ? It’s in order to put a picture of Chakwera than Bingu , Peter , JB , Khumbo , Tembo etc .

    Some questions are stupid. Kamuzu and Chakwera are the right pictures to be featured .

  11. Dr. Ben Phiri, Ph.D. (Cyprus International) says:

    UNIMA is very archaic. Its people are not innovative. Mpaka academic transcript imachita kutenga miyezi 6. Ma University otsogola amatha kumapanga ka course ngati LL.B(Hons) part time or evening classes koma iwo amangokakamira za zii. Ntchito kumangonamiza wanthu kuti ife tokha ndiye timapanga train lawyers. Ma lecturers ake wosakonda research ndi mapanga publish ntchito kumwa mowa basi. Ma course osalingana ndi zomwe dziko likufuna angoti kholophete. Ntchito kupangitsa ma short course ngati computer for managers ndi kunyoza boma. Ma university wopanda ntchito awa. I am a frustrated alumni

  12. Congrats UNIMA! But out of of all those who have passed through the corridors of University of Malawi colleges, WHY Chakwera, Nyasatimes???????????????
