Malawi’s First Deputy Speaker of Parliament Esther Mcheka Chilenje has joined the race for honorary doctorates after the Commonwealth University conferred her with an honorary doctorate degree in leadership.

Deputy Speaker Mcheka Chilenje now has doctorate

Speaker Richard Msowoya on Friday announced in Parliament that the Commonwealth University has awarded Deputy Speaker Esther Mcheka Chilenje with an Honorary Doctorate Degree. 

“Honourable  Members it is with great pleasure to inform the House that the Commonwealth University has honoured and recognized the meritorious contributions of the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament Esther Mcheka Chilenje with an Honorary Doctorate Degree in Leadership,” said Msowoya.  

An honorary degree is awarded to elite leaders who demonstrate great character and have proven extraordinary achievements and service to their communities, countries or the world as a mark of esteem.

Msowoya said before the actual award ceremony in Arabian Courtyard Hotel in Dubai, Chilenje will be going through an intensive Leadership training. 

Speaking later, Chilenje commended her fellow MPs for the exposure that she has gained. 

“I owe all this to God and people of my constituency for all the success,” Said Chilenje. 

Member of Women Parliamentary Caucus, Mary Navitcha, who is also legislator for Thyolo Thava constituency has commended Chilenje for the achievement. 

“This achievement is not for Chilenje alone. It is for everyone in the House, so we are all grateful,” Said Navicha.

Chilenje obtained a Masters Degree in Leadership with Leeds Becket University in 2015. 

In 2010 Chilenje obtained a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture.

Mean-nothing degree!
Sindingagwadire kulemekeza munthu chifukwa wapasidwa “Doctorate” without working for it.
Why even publish this as “news”, abale inu?

Does anyone In the Malawi Parliament have a genuine degree that they have worked for from a high ranking university? Are there any graduates from Yale, Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge, Johns Hopkins, the Sorbonne or any other such notable establishment? No? Surprise, surprise! One politician in Malawi acquired a doctorate from Bolton University in the UK, which is about as insignificant as you can get.

Lazarus Chakwera Has asked Malawians to simply call him Lazarus or Laz or Chakwela. I totally agree with him. Asiyire ma semi-illiterate za ma fake titles.

Besides politicians, are there no deserving, industrious Malawians? Why not confer an honorary doctorate to the lone teacher, Mark Kamphira of Chiguma Primary School? These bullshit universities are after cheap publicity because they can’t point at any respected mind who studied with them.

Mmmmmm! Akulu, inu ndi amene simukuwadziwa bwino mayiwa. She was my teacher at Naotcha primary school in Blantyre. I can explain her career life very well, she indeed has the bachelors degree in agriculture.

It’s high time our politicians should STOP FOOLING themselves with such fake Honorary Doctorate Degrees. Calling themselves professors, doctors. It’s all fong kong and ABSURD!!! Reputable politicians like Mandela, Obama had received multiple honorary degrees but NEVER went about bragging with FAKE certificates. Even Gucci Grace had to assign well-known academicians to get her PhD. It SMACKS an act of ‘inferiority complex’ wanting to look superior than what one real is. In fact thieves often seek to impress people around by putting on expensive suits, drive expensive cars, drink expensive liquor just to look big. The drive behind such psychological… Read more »
