Thyolo students set own secondary school ablaze

Irate students at Thyolo secondary school on Wednesday night went on rampage, destroying school property and setting the building ablaze angered by what they say infiltration of the school by students from other districts.

Thyolo Sevondary School building in flames

The students say quota system entails that only students from the district should be selected to the school but they are surprised that the number of students from other districts who come “through envelopes” is now outnumbering those from Thyolo.

The students destroyed the general building which comprises of administration offices and bursar’s office as well as hostels, matron’s house, dining room and part of the headmaster’s office.

Reports from the school say what started the rage is that some of the students were sent on suspension due to various reasons which include use of mobile phones, teasing and bullying.

Thyolo police spokesperson Amos Tione said the damage is extensive and management ofn the school is now counting the cost.

He said investigations are underway to arrest the culprits.

This is just one of the example of what will happen if government and others continue condoning corruption

Who do you think can heal the world? No one people are mad not because of their leaders behaviour NO. Is Honkong in Malawi? Is Venzeura in Malawi? Are Yellow vest Malawians? NO NO NO! The world is driven by a strong force of hate and crime. Malawi is also not spared. People should preach peace.

it all started with hate against northerners by Chewas. They forgot that a seed of hate grows. The Lomwes just copied it. if you are a tribalist you cannot hate one one tribe only, you will hate all other tribes other than your own, of course with varying degrees of hate. if this happened in the north of Malawi it would have justified the hate against northerners. Hate breeds hate, love breeds love. Malawi will need strong leadership to reverse this dangerous trend
