The University of Malawi (UNIMA) on Wednesday October 16th 2019 awarded, certificates, diplomas and degrees to 552 students who have completed their studies in its various colleges, at the Great Hall in Zomba.

Speaking before the inauguration ceremony presided by the Pro Vice Chancellor Professor Alfred Mtenje, the University Council Chairperson Reverend, Dr Billy Gama congratulated the graduands for their hard working spirit.

Rev. Gama also recognized the vision of the Chancellor of UNIMA, the state president Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika and the government of Malawi for the support rendered in implementing higher education in the country.

“To get a degree under UNIMA is not a mean achievement, therefore I can gladly say, congratulations,” he said.

He further commended the members of staff for the job well done and urged them to continue working hard to produce high quality graduates even after the delinking of  UNIMA.

An alumnus of UNIMA Engineer Dr Mathews Mtumbuka gave a motivational talk to the graduands where he encouraged them to be ambitious, hardworking, focused and determined.

“I encourage you to go, see, blossom and conquer the world so that you should be part of the people who ought to lead Malawi out of poverty,” he advised.

The Pro Vice Chancellor of the UNIMA Professor Alfred Mtenje before declaring the award ceremony open, expressed his gratitude to the State President of Malawi Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika for honouring him to preside over the auspicious occasion.

“A graduation ceremony is a unique memorable event and moment of cerebrating the benefits of many years of hard work,” Prof Mtenje said.

He advised the students to use their qualifications and training to contribute towards changing the world to be a better one.

“ I would also like to encourage you to always aim high, convince yourself that anything is possible if you believe in yourself,” he added.
