Chakaka-Nyirenda elected at University of Sussex as delegate in National Union of Students

Chakaka Nyirenda: Has relevant experience relating to student unionism 

As NUS Black Student’s Delegate, Nyirenda, 36 said he will be representing the Union on meetings and conferences involving black students in UK universities.

His  first meeting will take place on Saturday and Sunday in Bradford, West Yorkshire.

“NUS Black Students’ Conference is the sovereign policy-making body of the Black Students’ Campaign which is a politically autonomous part of NUS UK,” Nyirenda explained to Nyasa Times.

The weekend conference brings together delegates from students’ unions affiliated to NUS UK to discuss, debate and vote on motions and elect the political leadership for the year ahead.

“All I can say is that I will forever be indebted to the Malawian colleagues at the University of Sussex who encouraged me to compete for the position. Their encouragement helped me to attain this milestone,” he added.

The NUS Black Students’ Campaign represents students of African, Asian, Arab and Caribbean descent at a local and national level on all issues affecting them.

The campaign focuses on equality in education, black representation, anti-racism and anti-facism and international peace and justice. 

Chakaka Nyirenda served in the Student Union of Chancellor College’s University of Malawi as Director of Publication, Information and Publicity from the year 2003 to the year 2004 when he  was pursuing his undergraduate studies.

He also served as Secretary General of Silver Strikers Football Club, a central bank ponsored club that participates in the elite Super League in Malawi.
