Inspector General of Malawi Police Service Lot Dzonzi has asked students of Daughters of Mary Immaculate (DMI) – St. John the Baptist University to strive for excellence.
Dzonzi was speaking in the lakeshore district of Mangochi on Tuesday during the launch of the universityâ€™s Information and Communication Engineering Technology Club.
He said institutions of higher learning such as the DMI â€“St. John the Baptist are supposed to be fertile ground for breeding young professionals who could take the country to greater heights.
Dzonzi challenged the students to live a dream, an acronym he used in explaining how to surmount challenges.
â€œI am using the acronym of Dream which should be translated as follows; desire for success, reject failure, expect to meet challenges in life, ask for wisdom and finally make it happen.
â€œThe road to success usually has stumbling blocks, but if one remained focused on what they want to achieve, success always beckons,â€ he said.
DMI was established in 2010Â and has more than 300 students pursuing bachelorâ€™s degrees in business administration, commerce, software engineering and computer science.
