Dedza alumni chairperson Banks Mdalla Kachinda told Nyasa Times that among other activities, the former students will paint classrooms and identify students in need of financial scholarships.

Kachinda said the school was currently in a “dilapidated” shape and needed their help.

He, therefore, called on all other former students to join in the cause.

“Our fellow alumni should come in large numbers and see for themselves problems that the school is going through,” said Kachinda.

According to Kachinda, it was unfortunate that the school was going through such shoddy financial woes when most of its products are wallowing in affluent positions and businesses in the society.

Pres Peter Mutharika is one of the former students of Dedza. Last December, Mutharika handed over a minibus and promised to rehabilitate the school. He also pledged to pay for the maintenance costs.

According to his personal assistant Ben Phiri, the maintenance project will cost the president K20 million.

Other former students of the school, highly regarded in the Malawian society, Malawi Economic Justice Network (MEJN) executive director Dalisto Kubalasa, Nyasa Times Managing Director Edgar Chibaka, military lawyer Dan Kuwali and Finance Minister Good Gondwe. .

Most of the schools are now in pathetic shape. All the multiparty presidents have literally done nothing to improve the standards of education. Why should the president spend K20 million to facelift a school. We pay taxes on daily and monthly basis and what is the use of these taxes? Do Malawians really love their country? Have we stopped giving birth if we let our structures deteriorate like this? How did Dr. Kamuzu Banda run his government? Are we in government just to meet our present needs and forgetting the needs of our children? All we hear is yhe president… Read more »

Nafenso amene tinali pa Robert Blake lets do something on our school.


Soms of us were at Liwalazi in Dwangwa and the school is no more and we have never been arrested before. Advise where we should we go and paint?


Liwalazi is a brand new sch after gvt upgraded it to a full day sec with a girls hostel and it does not need any painting. May talk of building more tchrs houses. Zikuonetsa kuti pa net pa ena tikungopereka irrelevant comments due to lack of knowledge on what has happened to our former schls since we left them.
