Mafikizolo perfoming at LUANAR prior to the main show at BICC
One of South Africa's most favourite music groups, Mafikizolo, on Friday performed at BICC where the proceeds were meant to support the construction of a multipurpose hall at LUANAR.

Prior to that, Mafikizolo duo consisting of Theo Kgosinkhwe and Nhlanhla Mciza performed two songs during a Round table discussion at Bunda Campus, an event organized by South Africa High Commission to Malawi in conjunction with LUANAR.

Speaking to young people who were at the event Nhlanhla Mciza urged young people to work hard and study hard saying they all have the potential to be what they want to be.

Theo Kgosinkhwe said it is time for young people to stand up.

“Invest in yourself. It is time for young people to rise, to be involved in politics, business, education and many other things. We should rise so that the world should know that we are leaders,” he said.

He further asked government to create more opportunities for young people.

Chairman for LUANAR Council, Professor James Seyani thanked the South Africa High Commission for bringing Mafikizolo to fundaise for the multipurpose hall.

He said the idea to construct the multipurpose hall initially came from the South African High Commission.

“We are glad that the proceeds from Mafikizolo show will also go towards the construction of the multipurpose hall. We currently have a financial gap of about 100 million to complete the construction of the hall, timeliness of this donation therefore cannot be over emphasized,” said Professor Seyani.

He said the donation will support the provision of conducive teaching and learning environment for the youth.
“The donation will go a long way to assisting the University in its aspirations to become a World Class University committed, among others to improving the quality of students’ learning experience by ensuring proper and enabling physical environment through the provision of quality and purposely built infrastructure,” he said.

Earlier this year, Petroleum Importers Limited (PIL) donated MK100 million to the construction of the hall. And some of the companies which made contributions are FDH Bank, CDH Bank as well as Terrastone.
