Organizing The Zomba Renaissance – A Call to Sons, Daughters and Friends

Where does the story of your life start. Here is how mine started?

I am a son of a father from Nkolimbo Village Traditional Authority (TA) Kwataine in Ntcheu and a mother from Makupete Village, TA Chikowi, Thondwe Zomba. My mother was born in Zomba. She went to school at Nankumba Primary School in Thondwe Zomba and to St Mary’s Secondary School in Zomba. My maternal grandfather, worked at the Government Press in Zomba. My parents were married at Zomba CCAP Church. My father worked at Ministry of Finance in Zomba. I was born at Zomba General Hospital.

I went to Zomba Community Centre Kindergarten. I was raised in Mable and Ndola Lines in Zomba. For the longest time, my mother worked at the Zomba National Bank Branch.

I grew playing in memorable places the likes of Zomba Botanical Gardens, Zomba Sawmill Dump Site, Zomba Gymkhana Club, B and A, Lwangwa Recreation Centre, Mulunguzi Dam, Chikanda, Mponda Bwino, Mapale, Mulunguzi River, Parliament Building and many more. I started my primary school in 1976 at Zomba Government F.P. School (Bwaila FP a.k.a. Gava), was selected to Mulunguzi Secondary School in Zomba in 1985 from Zomba Police Camp Primary School. Then I studied at Chancellor College in Chirunga, Zomba. If I have to do charity anywhere, it starts in Zomba because Zomba is where my story starts.

That is my story. What is yours?

Wherever your story begins, make it a point that at least that is where your charity starts as well. At least the hospital where you were born or one of your former schools and your home village or area. Therefore, as a son of Malawi, born and raised in Zomba, I hereby call upon other Sons and Daughters of Zomba and Friends of Zomba, and the Friends of the Sons and Daughters and Friends of Zomba who are passionate about our Zomba that we should join hands and establish The Zomba Renaissance and Preservation Initiative.

We can replicate this in each and every community across our country. Each community or area has its Sons and Daughters who are scattered within the country and abroad.

Even The Biggest Man Was Once a Baby

Sons, Daughters and Friends of Zomba, let us join ourselves into The Zomba Renaissance and Preservation Initiative. As Babies of Zomba General Hospital, we can get together in initiatives to augment improvement or equipment supply efforts that are going on at this our hospital as “Ana a paJenolo”. The little we can do, together will have culminate into huge impact on our community and indeed our country.

Who is in on the ground and beyond? We can this.

Welcome To Zomba … But Please Do Not Mess

Let’s Do This!
