Continued water shortages at Malawi University of Science and Technology [MUST] have forced the management to temporarily close the institution, Malawi24 can reveal.
According to a statement released by the University through its registrar Dr. Tarsizius Nampota, the decision to have the University closed is due to the scarcity of water on campus as a result of the breakdown of the water pumps that supply the institution with water.
“Due to the scarcity of water on campus as a result of the breakdown of the water pumps that supply with water, management has resolved to close the campus temporarily.”
“All students are therefore advised to leave the campus by 4:00 p.m today. We shall communicate the date when the University shall resume. It is our hope and prayer that this will be soon,” reads the statement from the University.
This is the third public University to be closed following the prolonged spell of Polytechnic students who have no idea of when the University will be opened and Mzuzu University.
