Maranatha Academy says it has listened to the views of Malawians to include the three boys who scored highest in this year’s Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education (PSLCE) Examination.
Maranatha Academy Managing Director, Ernest Kaonga, said apart from the girl, Alinafe Chulu from Playdor Private School in Blantyre who will receive K1 million, the three boys who came second will also be rewarded with K500,000 each.
The three are Henderson Levison from Nampeya Primary School in Machinga, Angel Mbewe from Mphongole Primary School in Kasungu and Wakisa Ngosi from Ekwendeni Primary School in Mzimba.

“After going through comments on social media we thought it wise to include the three boys who came second on national level. We are not only recognising the boy from Machinga but even those two from Kasungu and Mzimba as Maranatha we aim to help the government in improving education standards in the country. That’s why we award students from both private and primary schools,” he said.
The four pupils will also be treated to a luncheon at the Presidential Hotel with Maranatha Managing Director, Kaonga.
Students who had an outstanding performance in the recently released Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) Examination will also be rewarded. These include Vitumbiko Kaunda, from Mtendere Secondary School who will receive K1 million for scoring six points, and Arnold Nyasulu from Robert Laws Secondary School for scoring seven points. Praise Kabaghe and Hastings Kumwenda from Maranatha Boys Academy for scoring eight points each.
The school will also recognise nine girls from public and private institutions for attaining nine points.
The event is slated for the Bingu International Conference Centre in Lilongwe this Friday.
