An old saying goes "All work no play makes John a dull boy". George aka JIJO has proved this saying due to his smartness sandwiched with the spirit of sportsmanship. George is a well known volley ball prayer and has been a Bunda flag carrier in this field of sport ever since he entered the corridors of this college.

Baseball and skiing are new games to JIJO however as a sports loving alumni he has found out that baseball is an interesting game and he wonders why this game is not being utilised in Malawi.

After a brief chat with George, he explained that when you are participating in sports in Japan you can not put on number 4. This is because it is regarded as a bad omen e.g. 104 and 204 any number with last digit 4 is a bad omen.
 
 
 
 
 
 

Dr Matiya's lectures in economics are always full of practical examples of the economic situation in Malawi. Just have a chat with George and introduce  a topic related to economics then you will realise that he is more of an economist than a sportsman, his analysis of the Malawi economic situation will always make you think.
