UNIMA Alumini & Students advised to avoid cashgate
University of Malawi UNIMA alumni and students have been urged to strive to be productive citizens as many cash gate convicts are products of that higher learning institution.
Dr Imran Sherrif said this yesterday in the Great Hall at Chancellor College in Zomba when he was delivering his bayan at the inter-denomination prayers marking 50 years of UNIMA existence.
Sheikh Sharif said it is sad to note that many cash gate convicts are products of the great University which means that the alumini are not using their time well.
He advised the students to refrain from bad deeds.
Concurring with sheikh Sharrif was Professor John Kalenga Saka vice chancellor of University of Malawi who it is indeed very important to use time well.
Professor Saka said they want to increase the number of lecturers who are professors for UNIMA to be on a better position on the list of world universities.
He said UNIMA has improved tremendously citing increase of enrolment from 99 in 1965 to about 12,000.
The prayers were held under the theme UNIMA at 50, a time for celebration and reflection, with a subtheme God Our Hope for Ages Past, the Hope for Ages to come.
