Mr. Chancellor College (Chanco) ‘s crowned Alexius Kamangila on Tuesday appealed to Malawians and all people of good locally and those living in diaspora to contribute money towards his noble cause of helping the less privileged who he said were in large numbers in the country.
He said after they were crowned as Mr Chanco together with his counterpart Miss Chanco Cecilia Khofi they discovered that they were bedeviled by lack of financial resources to achieve adequately their duties and responsibilities bequeathed to them from their predecessors.
Chanco is n acronym of Chancellor College, a constituency of the University of Malawi.
Kamangila a second-year student in the Faculty of Law, at Chancellor College was crowned Mr. Chanco in June this year beating other 8 contestants.
In an interview with Malawi News Agency (Mana), Kamangila made an impressionable plea for assistance for resources to enable them run their tasks effectively adding that they have strategized to ensure that a substantial number of the less privileged were reached out.
“Together with my colleague Miss Chanco we want to reach out to the needy especially in the remotest areas of our beloved Malawi.
“So we will require having funds for the charity work we have planned to undertake.
“We have designed a programme dubbed ‘Chanco charity month’ and we will carry out activities to assist the needy people who live with us in our neighbourhood, in November this year.
“We realise the importance of the media to publicize our work starting from now,” said Kamangilaa.
The 20-yearold Kmangila further said he humbly asked well-wishers to assist them.
“My humble plea to the general public is to assist us with financial support so that we can make a change in people’s lives to make this cause meaningful to everyone in the country, ” said Kamangila.
He further pleaded with the general public to give Chanco a chance to prove that the students there were worth more than the wrong perception that some quarters of society people had on them.
The king said Chanco is not as bad as people say it is. He said students at Chanco are involved in various activities that positively contribute to the development of this nation.
“People should change the perception they have towards Chanco students. Things have changed over time and it is now a better place where students participate in development activities to make our beloved Malawi better place, he said.
However, he was quick to advise his fellow students not to allow themselves be used by politicians in this country who only do things for the benefit of themselves.
Kamangila also pleaded with people to change their attitudes towards models if modelling in Malawi was to reach an advanced stage.
He said models like any other profession; were existing to make a difference in people’s lives and represent the communities they come from.
During his reign, Kamangila plans on taking part in various charity works including reaching out to the youth through the Gospel, a weapon he described as a “powerful panacea for leading one into a progressive life especially for University students.”
Chancellor College was established in the early sixties during late President Dr Hastings Kamuzu Banda’s regime.
