The Malawi University of Science and Technology (MUST) has described Vincent Wandale’s claims that his much touted ‘government’ of Thyolo and Mulanje known as Must will be headquartered at the University as”wishful thinking on his part”.
The University also said there are no links between Wandale’s MUST government and the University, also abbreviated as MUST despite both being in Thyolo district.
The University said this after Wandale, who is the leader for People’s Land Organisation (PLO), set October 26 2017 as a date for the swearing-in ceremony for President and 45-member cabinet for United State of Mulanje and Thyolo (Must) government.
Wandale disclosed this during a meeting held at Khonjeni Turn in Thyolo on Thursday.
He told his followers that the swearing in ceremony will be held at Malawi University of Science and Technology and among those invited are Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe to inspire people of the area on land grab from tea estates.
Wandale asserted that every citizen of Must will undergo military training.
But the University dispelled the claims, claiming that Wandale has not made any booking or request to hold any function at the University or within its precincts.
“Malawians should know that Vincent Wandale’s so called Must government has no links with whatsoever with the Malawi University of Science and Technology, also abbreviated as MUST despite both being in Thyolo.
“It is also not true that Wandale’s government will be headquartered at the university. The University remains a government of Malawi institution.
“On the launch venue, people may wish to know that Mr Wandale has not made any booking or request to hold any function at the university or within its precincts. As such any association or links of his activities and the university are mere wishful thinking on his part,” reads the statement posted on the University’s official Facebook page.
During the meeting, Wandale faulted President Peter Mutharika for visiting Thyolo and Phalombe without his consent or invitation from Must government.
Mutharika is scheduled to visit communities affected with fears of blood sucking allegations in Thyolo and Phalombe on Friday October 13 and Monday October 16, respectively.
Wandale said Mutharika should have engaged him before announcing his official engagements in the sovereign state of Must.
He therfore said he will report the Malawi leader to the UN for violating domestic and international laws and that warrant of arrests will be issued for Malawi government officials, Paramount Chief Ngolongoliwa, Members of Parliament and Ward Councillors for the crime of undermining the sovereignty of the MUST republic.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
