It’s a pity that we wait for other Universities to establish Research Centers at our universities & tgey use that to smuggle biological samples out of the country…What are our Professors doing? All the research centers affiliated with College of Medicine are just sample smuggling centers.
We must feels embarrassed for this my fellow Malawians…




This is what we want. Chitukuko patsogolo. Congrats APM


Has Mutharika ever visited any of the universities in Malawi apart from presiding over graduation?

Uyu nde Mmalawi amene ndikumudziwa ine. Saona chabwino ngakhale pang’ono. Negative attitude that’s what defines us as Malawians.
