The day 21 March 2018 was supposed to bring joy to our family but alas!! DPP ruined it all.
We traveled from Zomba to Lilongwe on the evening of Tuesday 20. March 2018 to attend the graduation ceremony our niece at BICC. We arrived in Lilongwe around 19:00 hrs and we we directed to one of the lodges in Likuni where we could afford.
On 21 March, I woke up at 05:00 hrs together with my wife and my niece to prepare for the ceremony. To me breakfast did not matter because i was in cloud nine. We took a minibus that took us to town and from old town we jumped into another minibus that took us to City Center.
I passed through the gates of magnificent BICC where i bought some flowers. At 7:00 hrs I was on the queue. My Niece being a graduand used the other door. When I was about to get to the door, the hall was full. The seats were occupied by uninvited guests that included Amayi asendera and anyamata a cadet…….my chest boiled with anger and I was about to explode.
I sat outside the hall and never stopped thinking:
What do the cadets and amayi a sendera have to do with the academic graduation ceremony??
APM being a former lecturer must have seen so many graduation ceremonies in his life. Has he ever experienced this nonsense??
Chancellors for public universities should not be politicians.
