The University of Addis Ababa should withdraw the honorary degree from APM. They conferred the degree on him without any research. President Mutharika told MBC (tonse tinamva) that he was conferred the degree because, among other factors, him and his administration have improved on electricity and water supplies, in other words there are no more blackouts and dry taps. In contrast, the opposite is true. I stay in the Capital where blackouts and dry taps are no longer news; news is when you have water and electricity all day long. Life in Malawi is horrible because of electricity and water woes so when a university, the calibre of the University of Addis Ababa gives out an honorary degree to an individual because water and electricity is readily available is the joke of the year. For the president to charter a plane using tax payers money just to get the senseless paper is not only an embarrasment but a scandal. Just yesterday we did not have electricity here almost the whole day and water is available once a week. The honorary degree should immediately be withdrawn and given to him when the situation improves.
