Malawian Author Launches Book in Tanzania

Malawian Author Launches Book in Tanzania

Malawian Author Professor Malango Chinthenga, a lecturer at Hebron University in Lilongwe has launched his book  “Africa Magufuli and Change”, in Mwanza and Dar es Salaam Tanzania respectively.

The launch in Tanzania follows similar event held in Lilongwe in June this year.

Speaking to Zodiak Online after the two launches, Professor Chinthenga said expressed gratitude with the support he received during the launch, and the interest the book has received there.

He said that he sold over 400 copies on the two launches, and he received several requests that it should be translated into Swahili, a thing he says he is already working on.

The book discusses former Tanzania President John Pombe Magufuli who confronted neocolonialism.

“First we launched the book at St. Augustine University in Mwanza on August 5, before the second launch at Mwalimu Julius Nyerere International Convention Center in Dar es Salaam days later. I am very happy with the overwhelming response and support,” said Chinthenga.

He added; “As demonstrated by Magufuli, Africa has the capacity and resources to develop at the same pace, if not faster than its colonial masters who continually want to keep it as slaves. This motivated me to write this book”.

According to Prof. Chinthenga, the book will soon be translated into Tanzania’s national languages Kishwahili, as requested by many Tanzanians and people from other East African countries.

While in Tanzania, the Author visited late John Pombe Magufuli’s mausoleum and had an interface with late Magufuli’s wife Janeth Magufuli.
