Nyamilandu dedicates honorary doctorate degree to Malawi football fraternity

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) president Walter Nyamilandu has dedicated his honorary doctorate degree to all the local football stakeholders for working tirelessly to develop the game in Malawi.

Nyamilandu receives Honorary PhD

Nyamilandu made the remarks at the Bingu International Conference Centre (BICC) after he was conferred with an honorary Doctor of Philosophy of Arts degree in recognition for his immense contribution to football development in Malawi by US based Cypress International Institute University on Saturday.

The FIFA Council member, who was accompanied by representatives from member associations and family members, said the recognition shows that people are appreciating the good work that is being done in local football and all involved must cherish it for their efforts and sacrifices.

“It has not been a one man show but team work. This is why I would like to dedicate this doctorate to all stakeholders,” said Nyamilandi, a graduate of University of Malawi .

He continued:“Together we have achieved milestones and made strides in the development of football in this country in the areas of infrastructure, grassroots football, accountability and financial controls, good partnership with corporate sponsors, commercialization of the game and 2010 AFCON qualification.

“From passionate football fans who make sacrifices for football to happen in Malawi; to the affiliates who organize football at grassroots, district, regional and national levels; the people who use their own personal resources to support their clubs; and everyone from ball boys, stewards, clubs and our most treasured assets the players I salute you. This is for you,” he said.

Nyamilandu said it was high time football got recognized in Malawi because it contributes a lot to the social economic development of the nation.

“Football is no longer just an entertainment platform. It now provides employment to many and creates lots of business opportunities. So it must be appreciated,” he said.

Super League of Malawi (SULOM) president Tiya Somba Banda, who was among the representatives from FAM member associations, said the award should encourage all stakeholders in football to work hard as excellence is always rewarded.

“The award has not just come on a silver platter. It is a true reflection of the excellent work and administrative leadership the president has invested in Malawi football,” said Somba Banda.

On his part Central Region Football Association chairman Austin Ajawa said: “This should encourage all of us in football to work hard and continue improving our game,” he said.

It’s because of scam schemes like this that European authorities and universities are overscrupulous when it comes to African diplomas. It’s a shame for every hardworking student in Africa and elsewhere in the world. That so-called Cypress International Institute University has no international website; the Malawian one stands out for the poor editing, numerous typos, header culled from the web, etc. etc. There are no publications by their alleged prince-dean found in major research databases and so on. It reflects poorly on a newspaper to publish this uncritically.

I am failing to understand why a renown UNIMA graduate is excited to receive such a paper from a noncredible Cyprus University. Will he be presenting it confidently among his fellow graduates?

Malawians I dont understand them. Maulemu ndiye amawagomera kwambiri. Professor, Doctor, Bishop, Prophet blah, blah, blah for what? Mandela received lots of these useless honorary PhDs but not even at one point he was called Dr Mandela koma a Malawi ndi a Getrude Mutharika omwe ati a Professor hahahahaha shame indeed.
