President Mutharika wants Lilongwe University and Natural Resources campus in Ntcheu

President Peter Mutharika has disclosed that instead of starting work on a university project in the country, he intends to have a satellite campus of the Lilongwe University and Natural Resources (Luanar) in Ntcheu.

Mutharika said when asked to respond to a question by a citizen in the Talk to the President programme on the Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) Radio 1 that Ntcheu would greatly benefit from the new campus.

“Ntcheu has very rich agricultural land that would benefit from the expertise from the human resource being groomed from the new campus,” he said.

According to Mutharika, he has so far held a number of discussions on the subject.

“It is always expensive to roll out a new university project so we hope this will be very feasible,” said Mutharika.

If rolled out, the new campus will add number to Malawi’s state-run institutions of higher learning that do not suffice the country’s out-growing population.

The country presently has four public universities namely the Lilongwe University of Agriculture (Luanar), Mzuzu University (Mzuni), University of Malawi (Unima) and the Malawi University of Science and Technology (MUST).

Campus in Ntcheu to benefit Ntcheu people? Ask folks in Zomba if having Chanco has helped them anything, ask folks around Mitundu if at all Bunda College is any useful to them or they are less hungry because they are close to the Profs and Drs at LUANAR and there are no signs that Goliati people are benefitting significantly for having MUST at their doorstep. You can have these public universities anywhere without giving false hopes to their hosts of any potential benefits as clearly those that have hosted similar institutions before have benefited nothing really apart from Lecturers and… Read more »

It is because his mother came from NU. It is self fulfilment and not of national interest. DZ also has a lot of fertile land and we benefit a lot from there. There is also a new tarmac road starting from BLK, passes thru his wife’s home and him mother’s home before joining the lakeshore road.

Whilst these benefits many people, the projects are not strategically placed. When will we look at natinal interests first?
