But the issue of quota system is sensitive. One can win North and lose Central and South. So it must be treated carefully. One has to strike a right balance.

Quota System is not a sensitive issue but a source of conflict. It is just a policy whose implementation is meant to purge a specific people in a specific catchment area. It targets communities and social groups that are always encouraged by their parents to excel in education or to get jobs through merit. Besides, Quota System curtails the construction of more universities or education infrastructure development that would, at most, cater for those areas who are at a disadvantage because of the stiff competitors from those who excel. It sacrifices merit and competence. It throws excellence out of the… Read more »

Why is Charles Mhango claded in DPP political regalia? Is he not the Attorney General who is a Public Servant and is supposed not to affiliate to any political party? Nane mawa ndivala yanga ya Congress ku Capital Hill konko. Ndipo wina asakati nfyo nfyo nfyo. Ndakutoperani agalu inu.

For those in Opposition, play around with Quota System issue when you want to turn northerners against DPP. Northerners believe and love education,

Northerners are very objective when it comes to voting. Show substance in what you do and you will get their votes. As of now I do not see DPP getting substantial votes in the North. DPP willingly let North slip out of its hands by introducing the evil quota system which without measuring words, its former President Bingu Wa Mutharika openly said was introduced because northers were dominating in academics.

Issue of quota system did not start with Bingu it started long time ago with Kamuzu. The whole purpose was to bring equality in education. I do not understand those who are against quota system. In all fairness northerners shud be the first ppo to appreciate this why? The whole of north population on average for the students who sit for MSCE are not more than 35,000 as compared to central and south where on average ranges between 80,000 and 90,000 in which case the later two regions do have a high passing rate than north looking at its population.… Read more »

The way you have defended Quota System shows that you have dwelt much on the origin of the students or where they come from. Nothing has been mooted out on excellence or performance. Thus excellence is not an issue in the Quota System. That System breeds mediocrity and is a grave injustice to the intellectuals whether they are from Zomba, Nsanje, Ntchisi, Lilongwe or Karonga. Besides, Quota System is facilitating the appointment of “square pegs in round holes” and vice versa, thereby reducing the quality of teaching and its outcomes. It is important that everyone regardless of where he or… Read more »

Let me be a bit controversial here and posit that northerners are not really objective when it comes to voting. During the hey day of AFORD the north voted for AFORD no matter what. When AFORD collapsed as a result of greed by the party hierarchy, the north lost its holding centre. Since then the north has displayed opportunistic voting tendencies inclining towards the party in power or the party that looks like might get into power. In order words, the North votes generally votes for a place at the table even when that maybe against its interests e.g. when… Read more »
