As Malawians are buying tickets for the Mafikizolo and Tay Grin show at Bingu International Convention Center (Bicc) tonight, they need to know that their contributions will be used to enhance higher education.
The proceeds will be chanelled towards construction of classrooms at Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (Luanar) where students are learning in a tent due to shortage of classrooms.
South African High Commissioner Thenjiwe Mtintso has said the funds have been earmarked for that project as a way of promoting the youth who are an integral component of development of any nation.
The High Commissioner also said that this year’s South Africa’s freedom celebrations, under whose banner Mafikizolo is coming to perform, have merged with Youth Month whose theme is ‘Deepening Democracy and Harnessing the Youth Demographic Dividend in South Africa, Malawi and the Africa we Want.’
Said Mtintso: “In adopting this theme it is anticipated that the youth of South Africa and Malawi will be saluted for their contributions to democracy and sustainable development whilst exploring the manner in which their talents can be invested towards securing a better Africa and world in line with Agenda 2063.”
The tickets for the show are on the market selling at K25 000. n
