Maranatha Academy to offer university scholarships to all six points students

Maranatha Academy says it will offer scholarships to students who scored six points in last year’s Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) from all schools to study at Malawi University of Science and Technology (Must).

The academy’s head teacher Deborah Kawaye said  in an interview that the scholarships are aimed at motivating students across the country to work hard in school.

“The scholarships are open to all students from various secondary schools who managed to get six points,” she said.

Meanwhile, Maranatha Academy organised a get-together at Robins Park in Blantyre on Monday for the students to appreciate their outstanding performance in the 2017 MSCE exams,

Kawaye said 26 students who scored six points from across the country were invited to attend the event.

She said the initiative is also aimed at helping government in the enhancement of education standards in the country.

“As an institution, we would like to instill a culture of hard work in secondary students to ensure that they excel in their studies and contribute to the meaningful development of the country.

“This is why we have not limited ourselves to students of Maranatha alone but all students from other secondary schools. We realise that it is not easy for one to get six points,” she said.

Kawaye further said she hopes the initiative will also motivate students sitting for this year’s national exams to improve their performances in class for them to qualify for the scholarships.

Three students from Maranatha Academy emerged with six points in the 2017 MSCE exams.

Minister of Education, Science and Technology Bright Msaka is expected to be guest of honour at the get-together.

bambo Ndudza ndi bambo Jim and others, if those comments are coming from you then mudzaziona chifukwa na ine I WILL NEVER ADMIRE AT ANY COST WEALTH ya this preacher man kawonga. Otherwise I have a feeling those comments might be coming from ……………………………. I have reason to believe that kawonga does not enjoy the wealth if it is true that what he is doing to me is what he does to a lot of other struggling Malawians.

Great work maranatha, u are the only hope for this country as far as private schools are concerned .U are a really helping kil


Congratulations Mr Kaonga..this country needs person like you to assist the government in development of education. Keep it up Mr


This is the reason why am so surprised when people back him up on the FDH Bank. He is clearly unclean in his business dealing. Why should he be defaulting every other business transaction he get into? When you drag him to court or do otherwise, he sues you. What kind of a man is he? This is devilish. Achimwene, khalidweli tasiyani. Its not in tandem with christianity. Stop preaching kaye. Clean the mess. And start all over again. If it means going through some poverty so be it.


Khani iri apa ndiimeneyo fdh and maranathaso lero zamakezana mulibe khani ana abandulabe mafa ndi nsanje akutuma eti maranathayo pano yalusa


Some poor minds shall never understand rich minds. Not all the people shall appreciate the values of education and its goodness. Ignorance and prudence shall never be good friends. Ignorance knows only bitterness on the success of prudence. Could this be strange? Keep moving prudent Maranatha. Never mean thing breaking such record of being greatest achiever in the history of Malawi as far as private institutions are concerned. Which failure will not be jealous?

It pains me a lot to imagine of what people like Ernst Kawonga, owner of Maranatha Boys and Girls Academy feel and think about other people like me who they enjoy torturing. This man took my timber in Chikangawa some four years ago which he used to rehabilitate his other secondary school at Liwaladzi. Up to now he does not want to pay what he owes me. The matter went to Court but High Court Sheriffs in Blantyre seem not capable to press him to pay. Each time I contact him he shamelessly promises to come back to me the… Read more »

Mvula ikagwa , kuchuluka zoliralira. Sick minds always come to devalue other people’s success. If you have issues, follow proper procedures and get help. If you fail, blame no one but yourself
