Don’t be quiet – Chisi wants Mutharika to speak on Chanco closure

152

The president of Umodzi Party, Professor John Chisi has called on State President Peter Mutharika to speak on the closure of Chancellor College.

Chisi who also works at College of Medicine said Mutharika as the father of the nation need to address the citizens of the country on the way forward on the matter.

Professor Chisi said it would be good to hear the stand of the president who is also the Chancellor of the college.

He then bashed government for accepting an unnecessary fees hike saying the Mutharika administration is responsible for the student demonstrations.

“The issue of fees is not the issue of students and the council, it’s the issue of the government and the parents of the students. The matter of the fees has nothing to do with the council.

John Chisi

Chisi; Wants APM to come out in the open.

“Now the president of this country is the father of the nation, so what do the father say concerning the matter? The president of Malawi should explain well on the matter of hiking the fees,” said Chisi.

He then wondered why government accepted the decision to raise the fees considering that the country is in economic crisis.

On Wednesday last week, the Chanco administration issued a statement informing all parties of the closure of the institution due to what they called illegal demonstrations by students who were protesting against fees hike.

On Friday, Malawi Polytechnic students blocked the Chipembere Highway as they wanted to protest against the same fees hike.

They were stopped by the police who threw teargas canisters at the students. A few running battles broke out, a development that saw the teargas affecting patients at the nearby Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital.

  5. Let the President speak on his opportune time.Ther are some logistics that have to be looked into first.Let’s be patient Malawians.I too am very much disappointed with the fee-hike as the poor are to be deprived of the right to education.Let me also tell students to plan properly when carryingout demos.It’s not good to disturb pple who are concerned with ur demos by blocking roads.That’s bad.

  7. MALAWI IS ON POSITION 8 AMONG THE POOREST COUNTRIES IN AFRICA, AND IT IS POSSIBLY THE POOREST IN SADC REGION. PRESIDENT BINGU SAID: ‘IT IS NOT THE COUNTRY WHICH IS POOR BUT THE PEOPLE.’ THEREFORE, MALAWIANS ARE THE POOREST PEOPLE IN SADC REGION. HENCE, IT IS JUSTIFIABLE THAT MALAWI’S UNIVERSITY FEES HAVE TO BE THE LOWEST IN SADC REGION. MOREOVER, THE MAJOR FOREX EARNER FOR MALAWI IS TOBACCO. THIS THEN SHOWS THAT MALAWI’S ECONOMY IS AT STAKE SINCE TOBACCO IS OBVIOUSLY LOSING POPULARITY WORLDWIDE. THIS IS EVIDENT BY ITS HIGH REJECTION RATE AT THE AUCTION FLOORS. THE RESULT IS THAT THERE WILL BE LOW INCOME FOR AN ORDINALLY MALAWIAN, BE IT A FARMER, BUSINESS PERSON, EMPLOYEE AND WHAT HAVE YOU. HENCE, ANY EXCESSIVE FEES-HIKE ON UNIVERSITY EDUCATION IS TOTALLY UNCALLED FOR. ANYONE WHO IS THEREFORE SUPPORTIVE OF THE FEES HIKE MUST BE HALF MAD. ANY SANE PERSON WOULDN’T BE IN FAVOUR OF SUCH A SILLY MOVE.

  8. Maiko ambiri ali pavuto la chuma koma anthu wamba ife ogulitsa zitete ndi mbewa ndiye tingathe kulipila fees yokwela eti?

    • ‘He have’ kkkkk koma abale! kkkkkkk! Alekereni eni sukulu azilemba ma comment. Nanga mpakana ‘He have’? Pezani fees mukaphunzire LAN 100. Iwe wopanga support kuti fees ikwere timaganiza kuti unaphunzira kale. I did not know that you are an uneducated fool. Gosh, a supporter of fees hike is shamefully void of credible education. Amwene ingolekani kupanga ma comment pa zaeni. Muzingopanga comment za mpira basi. Za fees hike zi muwalekere amene zikuwakhudza.

  12. Iwe ngati udaluza khala chete anzako akudya money…komaso ndiwe mtumbuka nde u r nt allowed to speak out your voice ungomenyedwapo chabe

  13. Koma zokweza mafumu nde zithu bwanji sanasiire anduna?.Elevating one chief spending 20, 000,000 kwacha. That 20 million would have subsidized fee hike at UNIMA. Umbuli ndi matenda ndithu ndaonera awawa ongosapotera the President without logic

  14. Now i understand. If u look a fool’s comment is against students and support the president. Simply an arrogant doesn’t understand the importance of education like the president. If the goverment mum on the serious matters and run around on useless issues, what does that mean? What is the duty of the president? To go around and promising stadiums. While we have few civil engineers in this country just to count the few. Its time for the goverment to invest education in the youth to forecast a better future of Malawi. If goverment have no money, then parents have no money too. The president must interveen as soon as posible.

  15. Vuto lake ana aku Chanco ndi Poly amazitenga madolo kwambiri kuyiwala kuti pamene school zawo zikusekedwa iwo nkukakhala pakhomo ana a university zina monga Mzuzu, Catholic, Adventist, College of medicine, Luanar, MUST ndi ena otero akuphunzira iwo akamadzatsegulira school mwinanso after 2yrs anzawo azakhala akumalidza ena akuyamba ntchito. Mapeto ake adzidzangoyenda mtown mu ndi ma degree anzawo atatenga malo awo.

    • You dont understand the difference between stupidity, cowardice, tolerance and smartness. Just because those versities are quiet such their colleges are not usually closed does not make them any better than others. There are always repercussions during a freedom fight and sacrifices are made, no one says they have to be pretty or that they have to be liked

    • IWENSO NDIYE UKUWONETSA UMBULI NDI UKAPE ZEDI. KUKOLEJI SIKUKHALA ANA. DON’T YOU KNOW THAT SOME ADULTS LEAVE THEIR JOBS TO PURSUE UNIVERSITY EDUCATION? YOUR IGNORANCE IS YOUR STRONGEST TRAIT. AND THAT IS WHY YOUR COMMENTS ARE DEVOID OF ANY SOUND ARGUMENTS. YOU KNOW NOT WHAT YOU ARE WRITING ABOUT. IF I WERE IN YOUR SHOES, I WOULD HAVE CEASED MAKING ANY COMMENTS.

  16. I don’t understand you guys sometimes,when his bother was fighting with UNIMA him was the minister of education,and I remember very well he was very quite. He failed to come in with the solution. This president of yours Malawians,’he fails in grass roots’.

  17. Anenepo kuti chani? Analiko Ku strike ko? Amenewa asatsegulenso. Kuli ma university enieni ngati COM, KCN, they don’t have time to do that

    • IWE NDIWE SUPPORTER CHABE WA DPP. THAT IS WHY YOUR REASONING IS CORRUPT. YOU LOVE THE DPP VERY MUCH. BUT LOVE IS BLIND. YOU CANNOT SEE FAULTS WHEN YOU LOVE SOMETHING. LOVE KILLS GENUINE REASONING. WHEN LOVE REACHES A PLACE BEFORE REASONING, GENUINE REASONING HAS NOWHERE TO SIT. THE SAME APPLIES TO YOU. YOUR REASONING IS TANTAMOUNT TO THAT OF A DOG.

  18. aaaa zausiru ana amenewa ndiachibwana amazitenga ngati iwoo ndi boma pawokha itsekedwe mene munayambila munja kulipila fees yasika mufuna muzingolipilabe aaaa a kuzolowera basi munyaaa muwona mupita kumudzi muzikaba akakumangenitso

  19. THUMB-UP Prof. Chisi!!

    President has to speak not only because he is a chancellor of Unima but also as a father and first gentleman of Malawi. Unima cannot make decision Without his approval as the chancellor.

    Imagine, if the president is busy elevating chiefs, where is the minister of local government if you may argue that the president should not speak on this.

    Lero nkhaniyi ikuwoneka ngati ndiyochepa, should we let the government implements this, we will be the ones crying when the resposibility of paying tuitton fees will befall on us.

    Prof. Chisi is making a good statement as far as our economy is concerned. He understands the implications of this, pamene inu ndi INE amene sitinapondeko Ku collegeko tikungowona pamwamba pokha pa nkhaniyi. Tikulitenga kuti bola lapanga zabwino koma mudziwe izi:
    Mtsogoleri Ali ndi mphamvu zoletsa nganizo la department iliyonse m’boma. Izinso ndi zotheka kuti ngati mtsogoleri wathu ndi okonda anthu ake, #UnimaFeesMustFall,
    koma ngati iiyi njira yobela ndalama kwa amphawi ‘cashgating from poor people’s pockets’, let him be quite.

    Ndi umbuli wangawu,#UnimaFeesMustFall

  20. Enanu mukungoonetsaso umbuli wanu apa…zoti president ndi chancellor wa unima simukudziwa??? Alankhulepo bas #UnimaFeesMustFall…. #OpenMightyChanco

Nanga ngati iye presdent komanso chancellor ngati sangachitepo kanthu ndindani athetse mikanganoyi????? Professor chisi sanalakwitse kunena kuti ayakhulelo

  22. Nosense, what do u want the president tosay??.. Ngati amakuchepera mmaso pali anthu ma million they call him their president…. University of malawi has the University Council mandated to among others solve such issues. Umust be very stupid to drag the president onthis issue. Ofcourse those who proposed and approved such feez hike must be out of their senses because onthe mature feez hike normally this was designed to allow those who were not selected to the university or those that are working to upgrade. Now lets take amalawian sivil servant who is recieving k30, 000 how can he or she be able to upgrade with the k900, 000. 00 which is more than the annual salary… Some one is really mad here….Mr Chisi once again university of malawi has aspokesperson talk to him he will tell u updates on the closure of Chanco…. Otherwise lets learn to respect our leaders… Ife amene zatipweteka ndi kukwera kwa feez chonsexho timadalira fodya, nandolo kuno kwa Muheriwa, Kolowiko, Khoriyo, Mahorya, nkhande, Mvanyiwa, Muruwesi, Chitipi, Ngowe, Edigeni, nkhozo, Emanyareni, Enchakachekeni, Wovwe, Euthini, Bwengu, Kawaza, nyezerera , Petro Mmora and manyplaces of rural set up… Tikumana 2019 kwangosala 2years and 8months, and few days to vote for some one who shall consider our plight

  23. Bwampiniyu sayankhula or adaliminister of education sanayankhulepo kathu,so don’t expect him to speak bt chaponda will speak on his behalf.Him is a bubu

  24. True Japhet Banda ngati mkoyamba kutseka,,, .mphamvu amazitenga from same political parties awaa asamatitopetse. College of medicine alibe mavuto nanga KCN chanco poly basi

  25. Big up Pro.Chisi you are the first politian to to speak about this issue.I wonder why is the so called Chancellor is quite. All what he did was sending his un educated police officers and command them to shoot and throw teargas on the diffenseless students.

  26. Whoever is critising Chisi must be sick.The President is the chancellor hence HE HAS TO TALK.!!!!!!!! As the minister of education in his time he didnt say a word as well.(Academic Freedom).

  27. kkkkkkk Umbuli wama graduate eeeeeishh,,,, Everybody knows kut Chanco ayitseka with the reasons as well as spoken by The Registrar,,,,,,Nde mukufuna a president alankhule kuti chanino,,,, Yatsekedwa yatsekedwa basi,, ana a xool enawo akayambe uchifwamba coz ndikhalidwe lawo,,,,

  28. He failed to solve simple academic freedom saga when he was the then minister of education so u expect him to solve this ting of such magnitude and complexity i doubt..this nation is on auto pilot
