Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) at the Livingstonia Synod has mooted plans to construct a College of Agriculture to help in the training of more specialists in the subject.
According to the Synod’s General Secretary Reverend Levi Nyondo, the college will be built in the north of the country to plug the gap for trained agriculture experts in Malawi.
“We have many students who would like to join the field of Agriculture but due to limited space in our colleges, they fail to do so,” he lamented on Monday.
Nyondo said the proposed college will be a national institution like other colleges annexed to the University of Malawi (Unima) colleges, adding that its construction which will start soon will be completed in three years.
Malawi has only one College of Agriculture known as the Lilongwe University for Agriculture and Natural Resources under Unima.
