Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Transportation) (Honours) year 5 students at the Polytechnic have raised funds amounting to K200,000.00 which they have used to purchase a laptop for their fellow student; Maloto Mtambo.

According to the Class Representative Kondwani Mangoni, Mtambo is a very brilliant young man who is defending a First class Honours degree. 

“Since online learning started, he has not been attending any of the classes, let alone access any of the online services. Having no gadget means that he has had challenges to even write assignments nor his project,” Mangoni said.

The Class representative brought the issue forward to the whole class where they agreed to each contribute a minimum of MK 2000.00, some generous students went as far as contributing MK20,000.00 each.

Within a week, an hp laptop was procured and handed over to their friend Mtambo.

“I am very happy for the donation; it has really brought the lost hope in my life. Since the beginning of the Semester, I have started my studies yesterday and the laptop has really motivated me to work very hard. Now I can work properly for my final year project,” said an excited Mtambo.

Mtambo is the last born in a family of 8 where both parents are deceased. He is the only child who has reached tertiary level of education.

The class has planned to continue this initiative in order to help other needy classmates.
