MCP is using UNIMA students to destabilise government – DPP

125

Reports that University of Malawi students are organising to protest the fee hike in the University is only fuelled by the Malawi Congress Party who have given the students money, ruling Democratic Progressive Party cadet Pato Phoya has said.

Is MCP behind UNIMA protests? DPP says yes!

In a Facebook post, Phoya has disclosed that the opposition party is sponsoring students to do demonstrations against government.

“So, MCP is busy sponsoring students to do Demos against fee hike? And when these Colleges close for six months will the children of these officials who most of them are studying abroad also suffer?” queried Phoya.

He then instructed that issues to do with resolving the fees hike must be done with diplomacy and not blind emotions.

His post however received sharp criticism from sectors of his Facebook community who criticised him of trying to politicise a simple issue such as a fee hike.

“It is morally wrong to allege that MCP is funding the students to demonstrate just as it is ridiculous to blind oneself with party loyalty, too blind to sympathise with needy students,” commented Beaton Galafa.

Phoya howevet stood his ground insisting that he had information that the students were being sponsored.

“I love Chancol with all my heart but someone is using those good students. A few of them in the funding circle know I am not lying,” maintained Phoya.

University of Malawi students are getting ready to take to the streets and camp at the University Council offices following the increase of University fees that the students have to pay.

Last week, the students protested in Lilongwe and delivered their petition to the Ministry of Education. However the ministry said fees for the University are decided by the University Council and they could not do anything about it.

  1. Hahahaha! No one in his or her right senses would make such an allegation. A MCP ali ndi mphamvu pa zochita za mastudent? Is it MCP that has raised fees in public universities? Don’t be silly DPP.

  2. You only have grudges with MCP…..dnt cheat us to say you were actually finding strategies to attack the opposition. Try to strategize next and not on this angle!!!

  3. zugwilizana bwanji ndi MCP-munya muona boma la zitsilu komaso mbuli zophuzila,magets out ma fees up alobino nde awa mukuchita kuwamba,madzi ndowe zokha zokha mesa inu ndamene muli ndi khusa zachamba basi-kwatsala kuti a trafic ayambe kutolera ndalama m’ma window muzigayo za m’malawi muno

  7. Izi ndiye za chamba tsopano. Do you think on our own as UNIMA students can’t voice out on something that is affecting us? Koma a dpp, mwandilemera kale, musapitilire kundionjexa mwamva? Student akanika kulipira 275000, akadikire a opposition kut amuuze zochita kut akhale ndi virgil. Pena pake kumaganiza mwamva?

  8. The problem of fee hike is worrisome to every student and parent and it shows the double standards and selfishness of government thus calls for massive protest. If MCP and other parties are acting as well then its a blessing to the students for they have a helper. And if the MCP happens to gain support its normal then and don’t blame them for helping.

  9. No sense,,,,, students are wise enough,,,,,, they know how much it pains their parents to pay the fee,,,,, a DPP musanamizire anzanu,,,, mwaziyamba nokha izi,,,,

  10. 1 bad thing about Dpp leadership is kusavomeleza akachta cholakwa thats y zmaoneka ngat pipo hate you..pliz change malawiyu siwaolemera okha nafeso tmafuna titaphunziraa

I led in the news last a year a student was even struggling to pay 55 000… And now ua seng fweee fweee fweee! Kumat 400 000!!! You are in hot soup my friend (DPP), Ua even failin to raise salaries of civil servants by 20%, but ua increasing student fee by more 500%! U guys are irrational.. It takes a parent working for about five months to accumulate that amount! dnt involve MCP in yo failure, just accept it kut mwakanika give room to others! Am very concerned with this

  16. Siyani maphuziro basi.Kuzolowera zinthu zotchipabwanji?.Olo itakugwiritsani ntchito MCP palibe chomwechingasinthe Chifukwa Nayonso MCP ikadzalowa m’boma feez idzapitilira kukwera basi .Chikufunika nkungovomereza basi tili munyengo zowawitsa basi.muone misonkho,kukwera kwa zinthu ,ndalama ikungotsika mphavu tsiku ndi tsiku .Tiyeni tizivomereze basi

    • I think ngati unapita ku vasity u learnt about problem tree. In economies it also apply. The gist is: thoz guys at the top, economists, politicians, intellectuals and some relevant persons must get to the roots of the woes, not the effects of the woes. So u cant say tivomereze, its not a deadlock my friend we cn work it out by dealing with the causes and not the aftermath of the prob, so plz don’t be pessimistic be opmistic

  17. Kkkkkkkkk Koma ku Malawi MCP inu mpaka kugwilisa ntchito Ana Xool, Inu Amene mumadzitcha Aboma mukuganiza kuti MCP mphavu zokauza ana Xool akuzitenga kuti? ingonenani kuti zukuvutani ndipo Dziko lakukanikani ndipo musalimbane ndanzanu inu pangani zanu ndipo mudzifunse kuti zikuchitika chifukwa chani?

  19. you want to deny us education so that only your sons and daughters abroad should only be the elite of Malawi…..mungochiller vichi

  20. Please don’t twist stories to create excuses. The issue here is about exorbitant school fees not politics. Leave MCP alone and listen to the students concerns. Most of them come from poor families and they cannot afford to raise that money. If you think its MCP fuelling the demos then just challenge it by reducing the fees and see whether there will still be the demos, simple.

  21. K950 million ndipano pamenapa ku munthu wakumuzi ngakhale wapa ntchito ayi kuonjeza uku ndi kupha ana anthu. kuchoka pa K275 000 mpaka inu mukuvomereza zimenezi GALU yeniyeni shaaa

  22. Solution lower fees as you did with secondary schools and see if mcp will continue influencing student until economy improves secondry what pains alot is upkeep and rent for apoor or average worker cannot afford with peanut salary thirdly government has ran away from being responsible and lastly govt should make loans compulsory to every student with no interests and eventually be employing graduants to recover loans this will make some policies to change like mandatory retirement to go to 50 years to create jobs or change freel primary education and tax to every male adult to create income

  23. Hahahahahaha. This is very stupid. It Demonstrating against fee hike disturbilising govt? Are suggesting that Unima students are so dumb that they cant reason on which issue to fight for? Was it not Unima students who had a vigil in LL some years ago when this useless dpp was pressed hard by opposition during section 65 bugdet saga?

  25. APM ndi zero guyz,,, better PP…intellectual achta bwanj survive pa geri with K400000?,,, APM wofoira,, akakhala ku state house shud not think that every student z at state house,,, reduce the fees please,,, in as far as i know tertially education, one needs to eat well otherwise xul wont work,,, nde winawe uzit MCP mwakutmwakut?,, r u mad?,,, demo z the solution here

  26. Ana inu samalani ndithu kupanga zionetsero sikoletsedwa bola zikhale zabata koma mukati muzitengere malamulo nkuwaika mmanja mwanu musazasiye azibale anu akulira mutafera zaeni this is free advice from me thanks

  27. I guess those who are in third n fourth year are selfish. when the gvt hiked the fees for the young ones they did not want to help them. instead they were saying that aziona. Now the gvt had done the same thing to everyone,, they are now complaining. Thanks to the gvt for the removal of allowances to those in third n fourth year….. am feeling sorry for my brox n cctaz.. APM is an idiot. …. I hate that dick head

  30. hahahaha. inu nomwe mwanena kuti simungathe kukweza malipiro a anthu ogwira nde nomwenu mukweze xul feez. simukuona kuti zifukwa zoyendera zikukwana? i support issue ya kayende. ndingotinso achoke basi.

  31. That’s shame..to drag mcp into dpp’s mess..diverting peoples attention from the real issues won’t help you. Solve the issue on the ground.

  32. dpp is stupid ife ndife ana enafe fees timafuna tokha ndetingalephele kuziwa kuti yakwela mpakana mcp izatiuze chochita this gvt is taking us as we know nothing pliz leave mcp alone

  33. ,let us base things on facts on the ground, if government is indeed touched about life of students in universities I don’t think its time for increasing fees, as of now many are withdrawing just bcoz they can’t pay fees , buy incresing it will only worsen the situation.

  34. I think pointing fingers on MCP cannot solve problems concerning fees hike. Hw come UNIMA student could have been associated with MCP regime. The government of Malawi should hv been looking possibilities not to increase fees bcz most of de students are coming from poor families, govern…. provide these students with bassaries mkumadzadula malipiro akadzayamba ganyu wats de meaning of that. Each and every regime has its own weaknesses. Is it MCP that makes prices of things 2 be high, if it iz so MCP pliz reduce de prices of basic needs pliz i beg.

  35. No I don’t agree that Government has destroyed by selfish leaders, by failing to pay teachers, Nurses just mention few

  36. Izi sizoona ayi. Ine ndiwa DPP ndipo am a student wa UNIMA koma sizoona kuti MCP is influencing the situation fees ndiyokwera muzoona amalawi sitingakwanitse pakadali pano! Think guyz ena amakhalira kudya mbatata at school ndiye ayipeza kuti fees yokwerayo? Akanatiganizirako koma!

  37. Hahaha! simukuwanamizira mabwana kuti anena fuyeye/mbwelera mwalembazi? If true, then Malawi @ 52 looks like harbouring some folks who have chosen to reason like they are still in the Akafula era! Again, if true: the ruling party must shovel off some overzealous uneducated fellows or unlearned/”delearned” scholars masquerading as Strategists within the ranks & file; they are smearing stinky mud to the image of the big brand!

  38. there’s nothing to do with MCP Komano boma ili la mukuti dpp livomereze kulephera basi guys let’s put back into government our beloved mother party MCP tanamizidwa kwakwana

  39. palibe umboni onena kuti m c p ikutengapo mbali zonama. boma palokha likukweza malipilo . m. c. p ilipaokha.boma liili palokha musaganize zopaka .

  40. A DPP inu zikamakuvutan basi ndi MCP, this is false, just to gain unnecessary sympathy. Leave the students to demonstrate its their right, don’t involve MCP the fact is that fees zakwera basi asyeni ayende basi.

  41. Unima students are intellectuals who are capable of conducting themselves responsibly. They know their problems and no need of integrating with politics.

  42. next time try to write how beautiful Malawi is than exposing how weak we are lets love our country people lets work hard Malawi cannot develop if you continue exposing how weak or bad is pali zambiri zomwe Malawi have and other countries have and the same thing people are developed why us? lets work together timange dziko than busy looking at things our government is failing

    • vuto lake mumafuna kumaphimba mavuto.tikonda malawi bwanji pamene anthu akumva kuwawa! u love ur malawi coz wakhuta kwanuko

    • koma mukonza bwanji ziko yet tingofuna chilichonse atichitile? u try own ur own first and u better see my point mavuto alipo but ndi dziko liti lilibe mavuto? its only Malawi? the thing is lets work hard than exposing our country how bad is so if u say kuli mavuto by exposing pa internet who is going to install the economy?

    • U r ryt lets work bt our leaders must come up with national policies that drives to devlpnt, not dr x brings own policy and then when some y wins they also bring their own policies bt for the same Mw. We r like on a merry go round, starting at a point only to start over and over can we develop even if we work our hardest?

    • kkkkkk for politics i ain’t talk Mr Maurice anyway zangovuta but if we can do one thing as Malawians tingachitise manyazi Mr X and Y i guess
