Principal of the college Dr Mwapasa Mipando said the money will go a long in ending the college marriage with the University of Malawi.

“This money has come at a right time when we need more money than ever before,” he said.

Mipando said after debunking, the college would need at least K120 billion  every year.

Mutharika appointed a special committee to look into how best to delink all public universities from the University of Malawi to improve efficiency.

The presidential entourage spent MK600 million to to travel to the UK only to bring back a MK100 million cheque. You should have just asked the Malawi High Commissioner in the UK to attend to Malawi meetings; isnt it why they are there in the first place. Why do you need a whole entourage when we have a High Commissioner doing nothing in the UK

A million pounds. These are the same amounts of money you and your cronies are plundering the public purse in an hour leaving the citizenry at your mercy. Yet you go out there with a begging bowl.
Be ashamed
