INTRO: My name is Mbiri Mulamba, I am a General Manager for Cedar Place. I also own a Catering Company and a Cosmetic Shop. I am a young politician for United Democratic Front, UDF.
EDUCATION: I am a holder of GSCE from South End Secondary School, I obtained a Matric Certificate from South Africa, I have a diploma in Law from New College Nottingham, United Kingdom, and studying towards a degree in Supply Chain Management at MANCOSA, RSA.
ROLE MODEL: Dr. Bakili Muluzi, former president of the Republic of Malawi
AMBITION: To become a Member of Parliament
INSPIRATION: As I look at our nation I see poverty, I see children learning under trees, people walking miles to have access to water, pregnant women not having access to proper medical care, the amount of debt this country has incurred that future generations will have to pay for, just to mention a few. Am sure if I put my mind to it I could build a hospital or dig some boreholes and make a difference but I have come to realize that a significant change in this nation comes through making policies that benefit the people. Someone said if you want to see change be that change.
NEXT 10 YEARS: I see myself as a cabinet minister, preferably in the ministry of Gender, Ministry of Foreign Affairs or Ministry of Trade. However, being a speaker of Parliament or Deputy Speaker of Parliament like Ester Ncheka Chilenje is also something I admire.
ADVICE: I would encourage them to follow their dreams, to pursue this career path not for what they can get but for what they can give and have a passion for the people of Malawi. We are blessed with many things including our resources and talents not so that we can boast about them but that we can be a blessing to others and leave a legacy behind for future generations to live in a Malawi that we ourselves dream about today. We all have a responsibility to make an equitable difference in the life of others and you have everything it takes to make that difference a reality.
