Malawi’s Mzuni Deputy Vice Chancellor Prof Fred Msisk led to rest

MZUZU-(MaraviPost)-Members of academia on Tuesday flooded Mzuzu University (Mzuni) campus to bid farewell to the university’s Deputy Vice Chancellor, Professor Fred Msiska who passed on Monday, January 6 2020.

In a brief statement from Mzuni Registrar’s office dated January 6, Msiska died on his way to Blantyre where he was expected to receive specialist treatment at Mwaiwathu Private Hospital.

Speaking on behalf of Malawi President Peter Mutharika who is also Chancellor for Mzuzu University, Prof. John Saka said Msiska’s demise was disheartening because he was a man that had contributed a lot to the growth of the university.

“The University has lost a man who was selfless and very hardworking; this is the same man who had run the university for a good two years when the university had no vice chancellor.

“We are short of words, but all I can say is that he will be greatly missed and will always be part of the university’s great history,” said Saka.

Msiska was also a strong advocate of a group of Malawians that are fighting for Malawi to adopt federal system of government.

The late Msiska was buried on Wednesday, January 8, at his home village at Khwawa in Karonga district.

Prof. Msiska joined Mzuni in May, 2007 as Director of the Centre for Open and Distance Learning from the University of Malawi’s Chancellor College and was appointed Mzuni Deputy Vice Chancellor in December, 2017.
