Handing over the scholarships to the 12 boys and three girls, Egyptian Ambassador to Malawi, Maher El-Adawy said the scholarships were yet another sign of the brotherly partnerships between the two countries, which would continue in the coming months and years.

“Apart from these 15 scholarships, we also have 25 lined for next year from which we want Malawi to benefit,” the ambassador further advised the scholarship beneficiaries to represent Malawi as young ambassadors to Egypt.

Asked on the selection criteria, the Ambassador explained that forms were sent to various schools and selection was based on progression performance and discipline.

In his appreciative remarks, Deputy Minister of Education Science and Technology, Vincent Ghambi expressed hope that the students, through the scholarships, would be equipped with the necessary skills that would help to contribute to Malawi’s development.

“This is not the first time Egypt has supported Malawi; it has supported us in more sectors than just the academic,” acknowledged Ghambi further adding that the Egyptians had also assisted in the countries agriculture and health sectors.

He also pointed out that Egypt’s gesture resonated with Government’s policy on broadened access to quality higher education.

To the students, the Deputy Education Minister advised that they behave the positively Malawian way knowing that they would be carrying the country’s flag.

Can yu tell us the selection criteria of beneficiaries

crazy stuff

I can see one of them coming back in a few years time and become general al Sisi and coup corrupted government of the time and rule like a lion who will rip the entire nation apart.
Our government is a begger. Do you just give your kids to anyone who comes. These bloody egyptions have no education standards. Better my Malawi.


Hoping selection was based on Merit for the deserving Malawian students!


Fellow Malawians:
let’s learn to be ptriotics, let’s learn to be thankful. Lhomwes, Timbukas, Senas, Yaos, Mang’anjas and Chewas, are all Malwians, regardless of where their ancesters came from. Let’s us not language/tonque regionalize education in this country.
How many people are being killed in Syria, in Iraq, in Kenya in Somalia, Ukrain, in America in Yemen,in Lybia, in Afgnistan? Are these people being because of the Lhomwes? Compatriots? Let’s refine our speeches, before we publicize.


It is important for the government to consider the safety of the students when receiving the scholarships. Egypt is a country that has no peace. Killing is not an issue because they can behead people anyhow. There have been lots of security concerns in Egypt these years that have left many people dead. Just today 15 tourists have been killed by the Egyptian police and the army. Tread carefully when receiving gifts.


Muwona.Kupita a Lhomwe okaha okha kumeneko.
