Politician and former lecturer Khwauli Msiska on Saturday launched his autobiography titled Beyond Chasing The Dream in which he has detailed his life’s journey.
The event took place at Ufulu Gardens in Lilongwe.
The book traces his life from childhood, teenage life and all challenges and adventures in secondary school to university. It also details his professional life. It ends with a detailed story of his political journey.
In an interview, Msiska, who lectured at University of Dar-es Salaam in Tanzania, University of Malawi and Mzuzu Univesirty, said the book is about the journey of his life up to now.
He said: “Since I was a boy, I have been pursuing my dreams and that is why I have called this book Beyond Chasing A Dream.
“Initially, it was all about chasing a dream, but later I realised it was much bigger than that. It is a compelling story that I have shared with everyone in this book.”
In the book, Msiska also details his involvement in the controversial Open Terms Bill which was crafted to give former president Bakili Muluzi an opportunity to seek a third term in office after serving his constitutional two terms.
Msiska said he hopes the book will inspire the young generation because it will open their minds as he narrates his story about determination, focus and having an agenda in life.
During the launch, Msiska said he started writing the book when he was 53.
“Now that I am in my 60s, people should expect the second edition,” he said.
The event was spiced up with music from Joe Kellz and Phukira Band. Some of the notable faces at the launch included former Finance minister Goodall Gondwe, former attorneys general Charles Mhango and Chikosa Silungwe, professor Paul Munyenyembe from Mzuzu University and Conleith Selenje from Lost History Foundation.
