Deputy Minister Of Education Insults Mzuzu University Graduands

 

Deputy Minister Of Education: Monica Ching'anamuno


Mzuzu university graduates are describing as an insult, remarks made by deputy minister of education, Monica Ching'anamuno, that having an academic accomplishment is not a warrant for getting a job in Malawi. 

The minister who was delegated by President Chakwera to preside over a graduation at the Mzuzu University on Friday, stressed that university graduates must always be striving to assist government in creating jobs other then waiting to be employed. 

The remarks have evoked  wrath, bitterness and disgust in the graduates who are describing the minister with unprintable words.

According to one of the graduates, name withheld, he feels insulted to be told about entrepreneurship by someone who is employed. 

"She is not the right person to say that. Why did she fail to create jobs? I understand she's employed. Such remarks are an insult to us.

"What we expected from her was something tangible. Telling us about how government is ready to assist us. How can someone without capital venture into business? That was nuisance remarks," he said.

Over a thousand students graduated with certificates, diplomas and degrees from the university at an event that happened within the university's grounds.
