Speaking to MBC at the airport Sayenda who stayed in China for one month said he has leant a lot from the trip describing it as a success and helpful to his career. He said the skills he has acquired in China will be delivered to Malawians through national Netball Football team.


“The trip was very good; China is developed in many ways including sports. They are very hardworking people. As a netball national team coach I have learned a lot from the trip. People of Malawi should expect to benefit from my trip to the Peoples Republic of China,” said Sayenda adding that he has learned a lot from the sports equipment China uses to train athletes.


Sayenda however appealed to the state broadcaster to continue with its annual event of “Innovations Awards” by rewarding people who are doing great things for the country.


On his impression about China, Sayenda said Chinese people value patriotism, integrity and hard work the spirit which is also championed by His Excellency the President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika. He observed that if Malawi can emulate Chinese spirit, the country can develop further.


On her part, Public Relations Officer for the Malawi Broadcasting Corporation – MBC Thembi Malinki said the institution strives to inspiring the nation.


“We are very grateful as MBC, as part of our mandate; we want to go further by adding value to the people of Malawi. Our role is to inform, educate and entertain,” she said.


Innovations Awards, a brain child of MBC was drawn from President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika’s pro development philosophies, including the three pillars, and also the awards were designed to compliment MBC’s quest of inspiring the nation.


The awardees of the Innovations fly to China with the help of Chinese government on a month long fully funded educative tour to have them exposed and hopefully borrow a leaf on how their fellows apply their respective skills and innovations.
