Movement says govt removal of quota system in school selection cosmetic

Northern region based ‘Quota Must Fall Movement’ has described the government announcement of the removal of quota policy in selecting students to public secondary schools as cosmetic.

Kajoloweka: Quota system is worsening inequality

The movement has also accused the government of divide and rule by engaging the Synod of Livingstonia church on the issue, leaving out other interested stakeholders on the matter.

Coordinator of the movement Charles Kajoloweka said it was surprising that the government has conceded it was using quota policy in the selection of the students when all along it maintained the policy never existed in schools.

“This is very surprising, this is why this is just cosmetic commitment,” he said.

Ministry of Education says in a statement that national secondary school places shall now be allocated on the basis of merit across the country regardless of proximity and economic cost.

There are two schools of thought on the quota system—one supporting the system for which proponents feel some groups, regions or districts have dominated access to higher education due to economical, historical, political and ethnical reasons, among others.

You think the people from the south and central are stupid and you are clever? When Chihana came, in his ministerial draft all the Ministers were from the North while deputies from the Central and the South. What is that? Now after… Read more »

HARDCORE PROPONENT OF FEDERALISM

The quota system that has been imposed on the Northerners is evil. It make the Northerners as the most oppressed people in Malawi since its independent from the British. We have tolerated too much of the atrocities that have been thrown on us by the majority Southerners and Central Malawi people. We call upon the abolishment of the Unitary system that has created Malawians as unequal human beings in Malawi. We are the advocate and proponent of the FEDERAL SYSTEM where our three provinces shall rotate the presidency of Malawi. Each province shall be allocated points according to its population.… Read more »

Alluta must continue until the people of Nyika are no longer colonized by the Southerners and Central Malawians. We are Nyika people and Nyika belong to us. Let them rule their own Southern region and let also have our own Nyika. Why always we have to be the one to be oppressed? Lets us separate without blood shed
