FUTURE Journalists from the Malawi Institute of Journalism, MIJ, had their annual Cultural Day event on Friday at Chichiri Museum in Blantyre.
The event, which aims at grooming the upcoming Journalists in embracing and understanding Malawian culture, had diversified activities mainly traditional dances and staged drama.
Several cultural dances took place all with an aim of portraying how Journalists should handle different situations in their endeavors.
In an interview with The Express, Zondwayo Chavula, a literature lecturer at MIJ Blantyre Campus said the event holds an integral part not only for the students to know their culture but also for them to attain boldness as they are prone to public speaking with their profession.
“It is very rare nowadays to see youths getting hands-on in following trends in culture as it used to be back then so having this opportunity to stage something that coaxes their mind and their attention is so unique” Chavula hinted.
The event, which sees the Certificate students portraying cultural dances and the Diploma students doing drama, has been receiving positive responses from the public.
