A Polytechnic part time lecturer serving the Departments of Language, Journalism and the Continuing Education Centre (CEC) Wanangwa Chafulumira has been crowned MISA Malawi Human Rights Journalist of the year 2020.

Chafulumira, who currently works at The Times Group as the editor at The Sunday Times, joined the Polytechnic as an adjunct lecturer in 2019, teaching communications to students in various programs.

The excited lecturer said that he feels honored to be considered for such an award which specifically hinges on creating a better world for all human kind.

“I do not take it for granted because there are many renowned and versatile media personnel in the country,” he added.

As a lecturer, Chafulumira explained that his working and teaching philosophy is based on the principle on active participation. That is what he emphasises in coaching the Polytechnic students.

Commenting on this achievement the Head of Department in the Language and Communications, Victor Chikoti, who is also the ABMA Coordinator at CEC, congratulated Chafulumira by saying that the award confirms that The Polytechnic is engaging the best from the industry.

Chikoti further said that as a University they believe in engaging players from the industry to help in imparting relevant and up to date skills in the students.

Highlighting on the roles and milestones which has contributed to this recognition, Chafulumira said; he owes it to a social investigative TV documentary programme called Loud Whisper and TV and radio bulletins which he is the producer.
