Alumnus installs solar power at Mangochi Secondary School


Alumni of different learning institutions have been urged to help their former schools address challenges the institutions are facing.

An alumnus of Mangochi Secondary School, Griffin Kunje, made the remarks on Saturday when he handed over K350, 000 solar panels which he has installed at the institution.

Kunje said the donation is response to reports that the school did not perform well in the past national examinations since the students did not study adequately due to frequent power outages.


“It is indisputable fact that the country is struggling with electricity. Everybody is complaining about the same. The problem is so huge and its impact can be disastrous to students who are still in school and are waiting to sit for national examinations, hence, I felt duty-bound as an alumnus of the school to cushion the problem,” Kunje said.

He pointed out that the state of education in the country at the moment needs a holistic approach and alumni who are working both in government and private sector need to form a bigger portion of it.

“Let’s join hands with the government, non-governmental organisation (NGOs) and other partners to provide good infrastructure conducive for learning in order to make education both exciting and relevant to needs of the students,” said Kunje.


Chairperson for Mangochi Secondary School Alumni Association, Sillie Mbewe, said the association’s plan to improve the secondary school is being executed well and there have been some notable changes.

In the plan, the association sets to establish bursaries for needy students, award best teachers and students and setting up a science laboratory and a library.
