Zodiak’s Gospel calls for prudence in award of Chinese scholarships: ‘Not just children of ministers’

Zodiak Broadcasting Station (ZBS) managing director, Gospel Kazako, says the manner in which Chinese scholarships are awarded in the country is dubious and “imprudent,” and has since called upon authorities-that-be to to better.

Kazako: Chinese scholarships should benefit others not just those in power
Kazako made the remarks during an interface meeting with some girl beneficiaries of the Chinese scholarships through the Zodiak Best Girl Awards–a brainchild of Zodiak Broadcasting Corporation.
Since its inception, over 40 girls have benefitted from the awards. Of these 9 are medical doctors, an economist and several others in different white collar disciplines.
During the meeting, where Chinese Ambassador Liu Hu Yang and education principal secretary Justin Saidi were in attendance, Kazako hinted that most of the Chinese scholarships are given to children and wards of cabinet ministers and top government officials.
But Ambassador Yang insisted there was “transparency” in the award of the awards.
Nevertheless, Kazako said they would soon be launching a new initiative to be called Step-by-Step Trust whose aim will be to reach out to more girls.
“We wanted it to be a legally registered institution first before we could commence our operations. We’ve done that, and we should be able to roll out soon,” said Kazako.
Principal Secretary Saidi commended ZBS for the Best Girl Awards initiative saying it was corroborating government efforts in empowering girl education.
“We are impressed with what they are doing. Actually that is why government has engaged a 50-50 approach in selection of students to various institutions of learning at different levels,” said Saidi

DPP imatumiza mafana awo ku China. I have a full list of names that I collected including the universities they went to and the courses the studied including the jobs they’re doing back in malawi. This is the same with Mozambique and Zambia. Ruling parties connect Chinese scholarships and the Chinese know it. Chinese people are very corrupt. Satana wakuba china 🇨🇳

The Chinese are very corrupt, I guess you spoke well by talking to them directly. Amvabe. My niece with 13 points was left out may be because she was from a nobody family.

This is very true and I hope what Gospel has raised will be taken seriously by the Chinese. Otherwise the scholarship is just meant for a few in government circles.
