Daeyang Luke University in Lilongwe has been closed indefinitely following peaceful demonstrations that students at the university conducted.

This is after students were protesting the college’s decision to hike fees from K650,000 to K1.8 million.

“We have been struggling to pay the K650,000 and now the fees has been hiked up to K1.8 million so I don’t think most of the students will afford to pay a huge amount like that,” said one of the concerned students.

According to the university’s management, the fees has been raised due to the devaluation of Kwacha which has affected price of items on the market.

Meanwhile, the students have been ordered to leave the university campus.

But the closure of the institution is expected to affect Daeyang Luke hospital since medical students at the university conduct practical lessons at the hospital thereby increasing the number of health workers at the health facility.

  1. Please let there be good advisors for the directors of this school. How can our fellow Malawians afford to pay at such huge fee? You are the same people who blame nurses for not executing their duties as saints yet you force them to study as business people. Please revise your tuition fee otherwise that is a white elephant in a foreign country.

  2. Your Institution is better Situated in Countries whose Economies are Well.
    Not l but We as Malawian Parent cannot afford Paying That Amount.
    You want our Children to Learn???

  4. Uuummmhhh… it’s a great blow to the Education sector and Health sector of Malawi..
    All this is happening due to the low thinking capacity of our Stupid and greed leaders..
    Their minds are limited just as their dreams.they don’t aim higher or to say they’re just stupid selfish people…They don’t even know how to increase employment levels and they even fail to increase universities intake to public universities. They stay blaming on Others….they’re just imbeciles…..

  5. When the students of Daeyang ask for school fees in organisations that help nursing students they are told we can’t help you because at Daeyang everyone is on scholarship and now they are raising fees ,i think there is cashgate at the university
