Movement going ahead with anti-quota system demos: Synod in support

An anti-education quota system movement has organised demonstrations in the north to show displeasure over the selection of students to secondary schools in public schools.

Kajoloweka: To hold demo
The writing is on the wall for quota system

Charles Kajoloweka, one of the officials of the movement said the peaceful protests will be held in all the districts in the north except Likoma Island.

“We are demonstrating because we are giving the government the benefit of doubt that they would work on the issue with speed,” said Kajoloweka.

The movement officials recently met the Minister of Education William Susuwele Banda and his team from the ministry.

The movement is also demanding the removal of an education expert and commentator Limbani Nsapato from the board of Malawi National Examination Board (Maneb).

They accuse him of posting negative issues in social media platforms on the anti-education quota system movement.

Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP) Livingstonia Synod have also thrown its weight behind  the demonstrations to force the government to abolish the current system of selecting students into public schools, popularly known as quota system.

Synod General Secretary, Reverend Levi Nyondo,  said: “We feel that the government is deliberately punishing our children with the quota system. Remember, we have been saying that quota system is evil and must be abolished,” Nyondo said.

Education Ministry officials said the government selection of students to secondary schools was on merit.

Malawi National Examinations Board also denied that it applied quota system in the selection of candidates in the 2019 PSLCE into public secondary schools.

Please remove politics from issues of Examinations, its hardwork and intelligence not Regionalism per se
Dont misinform your children, most of the students who did not do well its because of their approach to exams. Both at MSCE and PSLC all the cheating loopholes were closed and the new approach is great! let your children work extra hard and they will be there. Bye, bye with organised cheating

How can u select and justify someone with 20 points to go to Chanco i saw on TV looking for sponsors just bcoz he is from the South and leaving out my Cousin with 16 points just bcoz he is from the North???
Pathetic regime and the entire of your evil system. Very very shortly with this system, we will start chasing all the Southerners from both secondary and tertiary institutions colleges.
Watch out very shortly this evil system will explode .

Some people can be greedy, wanting the best piece for themselves. Both 2019 MSCE and PLSCE results has shown that the North failed to perform. Concede defeat and tell your brothers and sisters to work harder.

Can MANEB and the ministry provide empirical evidence to completely shut up the accusers. I held that markers of the exams were told not put score on the marked sheet but to hand over the same for some else to put marks or grade it.
