Bunda College of Agriculture Principal Professor Moses Kwapata feels vindicated after the Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (Luanar) council cleared him of allegations levelled against him by the students union.
The Bunda Students Union executive wanted Kwapata to be removed alleging that he stopped the sale of beer near the collegeâ€™s common room and hostels.
Said a statement from Luanar council chairperson Professor Zachary Kasomekera: â€œThe council agrees with the findings of the independent body that revealed that the allegations levelled against Professor Moses Kwapata were baseless and there was no need to terminate the contract of Professor Kwapata as principal of Bunda College of Agriculture.â€
In an interview on Thursday, Kwapata said some students were not happy with his style of administration which emphasises discipline, dedication to academic work and sacrifice.
â€œI have always advocated that students must always attend classes, do assignments on time and never cheat. Those found cheating are dealt with accordingly,â€ said Kwapata.
He said one of the decisions that might have angered the students was his directive that beer should not be sold within the common room which is very close to classes and hostels.
â€œI feel happy with the decision made by the Luanar council and this shows that the strikes that were happening here were a result of my disciplinary measures,â€ said Kwapata.
