GO TO THE FIELD AS FARMER TUTORS – Nkusa orders Mwimba graduands.


The Deputy Minister of Agriculture Agnes Nkusankhoma, MP, has challenged the graduating students from Mwimba college of Agriculture to go in the field to serve the farmers and not to boost out to them.

Nkusa made the remarks Friday morning at Golden Peacock Hotel when she presided over 18th graduation ceremony for the students who have finished their certificate and diplomas in different disciplines at MWICA.

She further warned lady granduands to dress respectfully to avoid farmers be overtaken by their dressing, something that can make farmers fail to get the right extension services as they can be concentrating on their dressing other than their farming extension services.

The Agriculture deputy Minister again encouraged the graduands to venture into entrepreneurship and employ other youths for the nation to achieve the one million jobs being spearheaded by Chakwera government.

One of the graduating students who has graduated with a distinction in Diploma in Agriculture, Richard Chisamanga said he is very much grateful for graduating with a distinction and he says he looks forward to taking what he has learnt into practice so that Malawi as a nation benefits from his expertise.

“I am going to the field fully charged with this distinction paper and I will work very hard to put into practice what I have acquired and going forward, I will also be focusing on furthering my studies.” Chisamanga narrated.
Mwimba College of Agriculture (MWICA) was officially opened as Mwimba Farm Institute (MFI) on 3rd May, 2001 by the then Vice President of Malawi, Hon. Justin Malewezi and it has graduated over 400 students since its establishment.
