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85 students have withdrawn from the University of Malawi and Malawi University of Business and Applied Sciences, MUBAS after failing to pay tuition fees.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.
