Minister Nyalonje concedes Malawi public schools offering low quality education

Education minister Agnes Nyalonje has conceded in parliament this morning that most public schools in the country are offering low education.

Minister of Education Agnes Nyalonje: The ministry will come up with a roadmap that will be followed to rehabilitate schools across the country.

Nyalonje said the country has over 5, 000 primary schools and over 1,500 secondary schools, most of which do not have the necessary elements to offer quality education.

She said there are plans to have capital investment that will be inserted in the Malawi 2063 so that the status is improved.

The minister has also indicated that the ministry will come up with a roadmap that will be followed to rehabilitate schools across the country.

She has however indicated that currently, there is a Disaster Emergency Fund that is being used to carry out small rehabilitation.

Bakili Muluzi destroyed education in Malawi and built just very few schools. The TTCs were left to rot and just look at Lilongwe TTC. It was one of the most beautiful TTCs in Malawi. The old secondary schools like Chilumba, Umbwi, Ntchisi, etc are still in the same conditions of the 60s and 70s. Do you expect the teachers and pupils are motivated? The population has grown but the number of schools is still very small. Are we not breeding thugs and prostitutes in Malawi. We need a leader who loves Malawi not the likes of Bakili, JB, and APM.

Your just a hater, for your own information Bakili built more schools than those you praise. It’s collective failure we just need to strategies the system again.

A brilliant observation. Amen. An illiterate head of state became the killer of TTC’s busy campaigning for third term Malawi education rolled under the Shire Bus lines. Bakili never had any school in him he never appreciated education surrounded by palace croppers. The education roadmap be given the first peg immediately otherwise the education carcass is fast rotting. Only the Kasungu boy loved education not the leaders in a hot fistfight over the bone of academic freedom with sleuths in the tertiary classrooms. Malawi has been in the academic ICU our future sold to the illiterate wolves Ngozi!

You are miseducated. Be made aware that education took a spike up during Bakili in areas such as primary education (after introducing free primary), secondary education enhancement (when he introduced Community Day Secondary Schools), civic education (upon allowing civil society freedom), and tertiary education (when he stopped the spies on UNIMA lecturers. Of course anabako makobiri amisonkho but so did all the Malawian administrations did (kuyambira Hastings Banda who misappropriated Press and formed parallel military MYP etc). There is a lot that I can tell but then you can not listen because your are a dunderhead iwe ‘Wakwiya ndi kadeti’

She is the type of ministers we need who say the truth not sugarcoating lies. It is good to say the truth & start building from there. Our Education system needs total overhaul, is no longer relevant.

This doesn’t surprise me, how do you expect from a teacher whose welfare is being denied? Shame on you politicians because you are the ones making education of our country to be below standards
