85 Students Withdraw From MUBAS & UNIMA on Financial Grounds
85 students have withdrawn from the University of Malawi and Malawi University of Business and Applied Sciences, MUBAS after failing to pay tuition fees.
The Universities' students unions representatives Yamikaka Juma from UNIMA and Franklin Kadewere from MUBAS told Zodiak yesterday that the other 1, 400 are currently struggling to meet upkeep expenses with higher chances of dropping out.
Now, education experts are asking the Tonse led government to fulfill its campaign promise of keeping students in school. Meanwhile, a member of the board for the Loans and Grants board Dr. Henry Chingaipe, says they are exploring ways on how to bail out the needy students.
