In which area were you born? Tell us about your early life, family and upbringing, education.

I was born in Salima which is in the central region of Malawi along the Lakeshore. I have been   brought up in a family of six children, by my mother because she divorced my father when I was three. I am the fifth born and have two brothers and three sisters. I got in contact with my father when I was seventeen, while I was in form four, but he died eight years ago.


Michael Masudi, Head Teacher Michael-web

In which part of Malawi were you born? Can you tell us a bit about your upbringing?

I was born on Likoma Island, where the Universities’ mission to Central Africa (UMCA) first established its headquarters in 1861. This was where the Anglican Church was established from. I was born on 19 December 1962 from the family of seven, but there are four of us now and I am the last but one. I haven’t seen my father; I was bought up by my social father. My mum is a peasant farmer. We moved from the island to the mainland in Nkhotakhota in 1969 as we were looking for a place with enough land for catfishing. I’ve done a lot of fishing, especially during my early days in primary school when I was surrounded by water and it is still one of my hobbies.

Aubrey-Wande-web Aubrey Wande, Hospital Administrator

In which part of Malawi were you born? Tell us a bit about your upbringing and early life.

was born in Dedza, a district. The country is divided into three regions and this is in the Central Region, as is Kasungu. In fact, I am the second born son in a family of seven; five boys and two girls. My mother was a housewife. My father was a primary school teacher by profession and because of the nature of his job he had to move from one place to another so I grew up in different environments and places until the time I was selected to go to secondary school. That was when I started living away from my parents, when I was 18.
