Minister of Education, Hon. Madalitso Kambauwa Wirima, has affirmed the Government’s unwavering commitment to supporting Mzuzu University (MZUNI) to complete the construction of the new library.

During her visit to the construction site on Tuesday, June 4, 2024, Minister Kambauwa expressed her satisfaction with the progress of the “superstructure” and assured MZUNI management that the government will take all necessary steps to ensure the successful completion of the library.

Despite acknowledging the challenges faced, the minister commended the high standards evident in the current progress of the superstructure.

She emphasized the government’s dedication to upholding quality standards across all projects in alignment with the national development agenda.

Furthermore, it aims to strengthen community engagement by extending services to the wider audience in the city.

Construction of the new library began on February 8, 2021, with a target completion date of May 2025. Today, the superstructure is at 100 percent while the overall project is at 58 percent completion.

Before the site visit, Vice-Chancellor Professor Wales Singini provided an overview of the upcoming projects, including construction of the Entrepreneurs Training and Incubation Centre (ETIC) and New Student Hostels.
