Work hard for Malawi’s development — Paramount Chief Kyungu

Paramount Chief Kyungu for Karonga and Chitipa has urged learners in the country to concentrate on their studies to become productive citizens and contribute to Malawi’s development.

Paramount Chief Kyungu made the call at Mbande Primary School in Karonga during a legal clinic held by the Women Lawyers Association of Malawi.

“Take your books to be your boyfriend or girlfriend rather than spending time on matters that may affect your future,” he said.

One of the lawyers from the Association, Vitumbiko Mbizi, said the goal of their association is to promote and protect the rights of women and children by offering free legal services.

Mbizi then asked people in the country to report any abuse to relevant authorities like their grouping, Malawi Police Service, Courts, Traditional Leaders and other stakeholders.

The association was formed in 1993 and is currently implementing a project named Ending Child Marriages targeting 12 districts that have registered the highest prevalence of child marriages in Malawi with funding from the Clooney Foundation for Justice from the United States of America.
