Council officials are accusing the youngest minister in the Peter Mutharika administration of renting out the facility to Lilongwe University of Agriculrure and Natural Resources and forcibly evicting the council officials without notice.

But in a radio interview, Chiumia accused the council officials of running down the place.

“They were told in writing to vacate the premises. They were not chased away, that is not true. They were told in writing to vacate the place because they had failed to manage it. The infrastructure is now dilapidated,” said Chiumia.

Chiumia said the place will be available for all sports activities during weekends although it will now be under Luanar.

She also accused the council officials of rushing to the media before seeking information from relevant authorities.

Grace looking shabby in the head, azimayi athu zomangamanga mmutu kukhala ngati mwalowa nazo chiwewe. Taonani Dr Mary Shawa, Mayi Msosa looking smart. Mmutu kukhala ngati mphaka wogwera mmadzi. Ndiye masiku ano mumaphatikapo make up. Nchikana mabanja amangotha chisawawa. Kufuna kuoneka bwino mumaoneka nazo ngati choluma. Abambo komuona mkazi wao kuopsya ngati lucifer.

Good but this also shows that we do things in reverse. LUANAR, like other Malawi universities, keep recruiting students without the required facilities: lecture theatres, labs, hostel etc.I know this is obviously due to political pressure. much as we want to increase access to Universities, lets do this properly… LUANAR in Lilongwe has students at Golden peacock, Others at Adult Literacy, others near Kalikuti.. total confusion! eish. Some students at LUANAR literally sit on the floor when in class or write exams on their laps due to lack of chairs and tables/desks! Are we serious? Nobody can refute the need… Read more »
