Lilongwe University set to confer Chakwera chancellor title

Lilongwe University of Natural Resources (Luanar) is this Thursday set to confer President Lazarus Chakwera as its chancellor.

Chakwera: To be chancellor of Lunar

This will be in contradiction to Chakwera’s earlier statements that there was no need that a head of state should be an automatic chancellor of public universities.

Chakwera has been championing major public reforms which include exclusion of heads of state as chancellor of the public universities.

Chakwera will be conferred as the chancellor of LUANAR at a function that will be held at the Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe.

This will be Chakwera’s inaugural graduation ceremony as President of the republic.

A statement from the Office of the President and Cabinet says the president will also preside over the fourth Congregation – Session 3 of the LUANAR where he will award  Certificates Diplomas and Degrees.

Dean of faculty of Agriculture at the college, Patsani Kumambala said 1090 students are expected to be awarded with their certificates, diplomas,  degrees and PhDs.

LUANAR was created in 2011 by an act of Parliament.

It is a merger between Bunda College of Agriculture – formerly a constituent college of the University of Malawi, and Natural Resources College.

This is only one of his many contradictions. Being a ceremonial position, it hardly matters anyway. But let’s have a look at his other recent contradictions, shall we: he loudly proclaimed that he will reduce the number of cars on his convoy and he wants the number of officials who welcome/(send him off) on official trips to be greatly reduced. Very recommendable indeed. That will save lots of our taxes. So publicly, the president is making all the right noises. But then …. very, very quietly ….. he goes to South Africa with a team of 65 officials. A fuckin’… Read more »

There is no contradiction. As you have rightly mentioned ”no need for head of state to be an automatic chancellor of public universities”. So LUANAR has invited him to be their chancellor.

Nanenso inu ma journalists a pa Malawi get your facts properly before writing. We don’t have to fault the president on his campaign promises as regards the office of the Chancellor of public universities because these Universities acts still have the HE as their chancellor. It would be illegal for the HE not to temporarily accept the stand but let’s judge him after these actsl are repealed
