The two are currently in UK doing postgraduate studies under the prestigious UK government’s Chevening Scholarship Programme.

After a stiff competition with other Chevening scholars who are studying media-related programmes across UK Universities, the Malawians  were among the 10 students who were selected for four-month placements at BBC.

Chipiliro Kansilanga – from Times Group – will be attached to BBC Media Action in East London while Joab Frank Chakhaza  – from Zodiak – will be attached with BBC Focus on Africa – Radio.

The placement runs from 5 September 2016 to 4 January 2017.

The work placements are part of many exciting packages under the Chevening Scholarship Programme that are arranged by the UK government.

From London, Joab Frank Chakhaza said:“We are proud of this achievement and wish to extend our gratitude to the British High Commission in Malawi for facilitating our attainment of a scholarship with Chevening which has proven to be a life-changing experience.”
