Organisers of this year’s Maths-English Competition for O-Level candidates say Anti-Corruption Bureau Director General Martha Chizuma and speaker of the National Assembly Catherine Gotani Hara will grace the occasion next week.

According to Medi-Chanco who organized this year’s competition, the rewarding of outstanding students will be held on 28th March at Kamuzu Academy in Kasungu district.

Chairperson of the National Organising Committee, Flywell Banda, notified the participating schools that they have invited these two influential women in the society on grounds that they are role models to many students.

He said Gotani Hara and Chizuma are expected to give a motivational speech to the students, especially girls which may in turn encourage the students to work hard on their education.

Medi-Chanco which is made of academics from University of Malawi and the Kamuzu University of Health Sciences, says the competition was aimed at testing candidates on their capabilities in key subjects like English and Mathematics.
