Malawi: Chilima Off to UK to Defend PhD

Malawi's Vice President Saulos Chilima flew out of the country yesterday to the United Kingdom where he will defend his PhD thesis.

According to state house, the second in command Malawi leader has been reading for his PhD with the Malawi Institute of Management which has ties with the University of Bolton in UK.

According to the reports Chilima has been reading for a PhD in Knowledge Management. He had disclosed this before ascending to office of Presidency in which he is technically the President-in-waiting.

Malawi President Peter Mutharika who is a renowned law Professor has since wished his deputy best wishes as he aims to be acknowledged as a proper Doctor of Philosophy.

Chilima's academic path at tertiary level started at Chancellor College where he studied for a Bachelor of Social Science. His achievement comes at a time when the Presidential aide Mr Ben Phiri has come under fire for buying a PhD with government money to get an accolade he does not deserve.

Mr Phiri who is notoriously called Malawi's Prime Minister owing to the power that he wields over President Mutharika was given a dubious PhD by a non-existent University.
