The University of Malawi (Unima) will in September this year have its Golden Jubilee celebrations.
To that effect and prior to its main celebration, Unima has lined up several activities that would be part of the celebration.
One such activity is a tree planting exercise that will take place at the University Office on February 14 in Zomba.
Notable faces expected to grace the tree planting exercise include Minister of Education, Science and Technology Dr Emanuel Fabiano, Mayor of Zomba Ms Joan Ntaja and Parliamentarian for Zomba central Patricia Kainga Nangozo.
According to Unima, the tree planting exercise is meant to serve as the commencement of a new era in the business of the University of Malawi as it approaches the next fifty years.
“It is against this background that this ceremony is viewed by the University of Malawi fraternity as a critical milestone.
“Needless to say that its Principals, Deans and other University Officials will be among those that will patronise it,” said Okomaatani Malunga, Unima Registrar.
He also said colleges within Unima federal set up will hold their own tree planting exercises in order to embrace the theme of ‘Renewal, Infusing the Golden Jubilee Activities’.
