Malawi government has reversed its earlier decision on linking Domasi College of Education to Chancellor College, a constituent College of the University of Malawi(Unima) in Zomba .
Minister of Education Science and Technology, Luscious Kanyumba, disclosed the news during a meeting with zonal teachers from the rural areas at Mayaka Parish Hall in the eastern region district of Zomba.
The meeting was held over the Weekend with the aim of hearing out challenges the teachers face and also their welfare.
Kanyumba said Domasi College will revert to its original status since Chancellor College where the previous regime linked it to, is facing challenges to accommodate it in its budget.
“It was the previous government; of course I also served in it, which linked Domasi College of Education to the University of Malawi’s Chancellor College in Zomba. But we thought of allowing Chancellor College to expand its intake in the faculty of Education rather than having it emerged with Domasi College which is very far from Chanco campus.
“In addition, the University of Malawi faced challenges to accommodate Domasi College in its 2013/2014 budget. We are working on the necessary steps to make Domasi College an independent institution in the near future”, said Kanyumba.
Domasi College is located 20 kilometers away from Zomba city along Zomba-Liwonde road.
