      Malawian students suffer in Cuba

      Officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International
      Corporation say Malawi would be reviewing its bilateral agreement with
      Cuba on student scholarships, as Cuba's conditions are not benefiting
      Malawi.

      The ministry's Director of International Corporation Joseph Chite told
      the Public Accounts Committee recently that the agreement to have
      students from
      Malawi trained in various fields in Cuba has turned out to be expensive
      for Malawi and the students suffer in Cuba because they are not well
      looked after.

      He said the Cuba demands that the Malawi pays fees for its students,
      many of whom were sent to study medicine, information technology and
      athletics but the Cuban government demands that the expatriates Cuba
      sends to Malawi be fully paid by the Malawi government.

      Chite was answering a question from PAC members who wanted to know how
      the bilateral agreement with the government of Cuba was working.

      "Malawi is not utilizing the agreement because the situation on the
      ground is different. We are even thinking of withdrawing the remaining
      student in Cuba because the conditions he is living is are very pathetic
      ," Chite said.

      Chite said it is also hard to send money to Cuba, making it difficult
      for the student whose parents pledged to co-sponsor the scholarship.
