Mzuni DVC Prof Msiska dies: Advocate of federal system of government

Mzuzu University (Mzuni) has announced the passing on of Professor Fred Msiska who, until his death, was the deputy vice chancellor of the country’s only public university in the northern region.

Prof. Fred Msiska: Advocated for  federal system

A communique from the office of the university registrar said Msiska died on his way to Blantyre where he was expected to receive specialist treatment at Mwaiwathu Private Hospital.

“It is with deep regret and sadness that I announce the death of the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Prof Fred Msiska, who has passed on today on his way  from Mzuzu MASM Med Clinic to Mwaiwathu Private Hospital in Blantyre for further medical attention,” read the communique signed by Yonamu Ngwira, the Mzuni’s registrar.

He said the body of Msiska was “being ferried to Mzuzu Central Hospital” and that details of the “burial ceremony will be communicated later.”

Msiska joined Mzuni in 2007 as Director of the Centre for Open and Distance Learning from the University of Malawi, Chancellor College.

He was promoted to full professorship in 2017 after Mzuni council’s twenty-sixth extraordinary meeting approved a recommendation from the academic and senior administrative staff appointments and promotions committee of the council.

Msiska was also a strong advocate of a group of Malawians that are fighting that Malawi adopt a federalist system of government and do away with the unitary one.

In 2016, he claimed unknown thugs broke into his premises in Mzuzu and broke his two vehicles; and, linked the break-in to his campaign “for the change of system of government.”

RIP to the deceased.. But the reporter I think is mentally ill. He has labored to write some trivial issues to the complete disregard of the issue at hand, very unprofessional indeed.

Sorry for the loss. Iam not judging buy I just wanted to know when he fell sick
Sometimes we go to the hospital when the illness has reached it’s advanced stage . Iam not saying that’s what happened to the professor. Death can happen any time and to anybody.
God be with the bereaved families

Very sad. MHSRIP. Atsogoleri athu tikukululani kuti muzikonda anthu onse, musamagoziganizila nokha. We are lacking specialist in our country for different conditions. If you are diagnosed of conditions needs specialist you are air lifted for treatment outside. We bear all your expenses there while the poor man dies of same condition at his home I beg to remind you that not everyone can make it to India.
