…Unima to award JZU

In the ongoing scramble for titles which has rocked Malawi politics, Malawi24 can exclusively reveal that the University of Malawi will be awarding former leader of opposition John Zenus Ungapake Tembo.

JZU Tembo

‘Dr. John Tembo’

According to a source at the university of Malawi, Tembo will be awarded a honorary doctorate degree at the Great Hall in Zomba on Wednesday, 23 March 2016.

“I can confirm to you that Hon. Tembo will be awarded with a doctorate at the next graduation,” said a source.

The source further said that the ceremony will be presided over by the state President, Peter Mutharika who also serves as the Chancellor of the university.

Tembo is expected to be awarded the honorary degree in Leadership and Management.

At its last congregation, the university awarded first lady Gertrude Mutharika over her role in protecting the environment through her controversial beautify Malawi initiative. The award created a social media storm as many people said she was undeserving of the award.

Tembo, on the other hand has been a larger part of the Malawi political landscape. He tried to hook the presidency for three times but was unsuccessful.

In 2013, Tembo announced his resignation from politics and handed over the leadership of the Malawi Congress Party to Dr. Lazarus Chakwera.

    Tembo deserves this for sure. He has contributed to both the academic (University of Malawi), and political development. He is a hero!

  17. Please make me to understand this story. What has he done to deserve such heavy award even if u can ask small child can tel abt killing thats wat ppl knw abt Tembo shameless unima

  18. Even our own first lady, deserved the honourary degree. our cities are very beautiful now than ever before through the beautify malawi trust. this is according to the malawi polytechnich

  21. I respect him,the man was so powerful during kamuzu era and there was nothing to stop him being on kamuzu throne,but without no power greedy he gave chance for malawians to decide. u deserve my recognition obaba tembo!

  22. Please, save the degrees for more deserving individuals. With due respect, Mr. Tembo’s contribution to Malawi’s development is, according to me, very questionable….

  23. Hahaha.Hahahaha !
    How I wish Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg were awarded honarary degrees instead of these people whose past are hazy and questionable.Are you just trying to appease people you people by the way? If that is the case why not simply reward or honour those guys who built hydro electric power stations ,helicopter etc.from own local resources or enroll them to undergo further studies in your university?

  24. Ku malawi mwina ndiumphawi omweu ukupanga lead to ignorance, mutimaliza tonse kutipatsa ma honorary degree, munthu akangosesa bwino mu lilongwe mseu waku area 3 mumvekere akufunika honorary, maiko wa anzathu anthu achita zambiri still we call them mr

  25. That doesn’t mean he should be addressed as “Dr”, please people. That title is reserved for medical doctors and real PH.D graduates. Honorary doctorates are supposed to retain their original Mr, Mrs or Miss titles, hence Mr Mandela etc
