This was one of the key messages Kaliati delivered to girls who scored highly during the 2016 Malawi School Certificate of Education Examinations at Providence Girls Secondary School in Mulanje.
“The nation cannot develop if girls are not educated. A very educated person makes good decisions. Women who are educated cannot allow their children to get married while young,” said Kaliati
Kaliati also added that government has put in place various measures aimed at keeping the girl child in school and also maximizing her potential.
She however encouraged students to work hard in their studies and not to be cheated with their looking. Kaliati also said it is worrisome to see some men proposing love to female students.
“If a teacher is going out with students leaving all those educated women, just know that something is wrong with the teacher,” added Kaliati.mbc
