A United Kingdom based organization called Deborahs Global Outreach (DGO) has rescued five MUBAS first year repeating students from missing end of first semester examination due to outstanding tuition fee balances.

The sponsored students are; Brian Bwaya, Memory Matemba, Manuel Lucious, Romeo Ngoma and George Kamphambe who received K200,000 each.

The assistance came in through Sarah Chirwa, the Students’ Union Acting President who says she felt pity for the students when they failed to register into the university's system due to fees balances.

"They reached out to me since they were struggling with tuition fees, then I approached  different public figures who promised to help but to no avail. However, we thank DGO for the timely response", Chirwa said.

However, the Acting Dean of Students Dr Gertrude Sitolo Banda has pleaded with all students to work hard in class to attain good grades in so doing it is easier to attract sponsorship, because if they fail, sponsors withdraw. 

Some of these students were removed from the school sponsorship programs like the loans board because they failed in their academics, which is one of the conditions that qualifies one to be eligible for sponsorship.

On his part, one of the beneficiaries Romeo Ngoma, a first year Architecture Engineering student has applauded Chirwa, and DGO for the support and promised to fight for good grades in order to please the sponsor.

"My hopes to excel with tertiary education were doomed and I didn't expect this miracle to happen to me,’’ said Ngoma.

Concurring with Ngoma, another beneficiary Brian Bwaya a first year Biomedical Engineering student said he is grateful with DGO's support and has promised to improve in his studies so that he should not be found in this situation again.
