This is Our Story

Many African countries are failing to achieve rapid economical sustainable development due to rampart corruption, misuse, abuse of public resources and poor governance. However, countries who have invested in moral capital, good governance, professionalism and in a disciplined professional-ethical-human capital have had a rapid economic growth. In order to eradicate these malpractices by increasing moral capital, it is agreed that an integrated pedagogy that comprises three pillars namely: appropriate knowledge, right attitude and appropriate skills should be the norm in any education system. Unfortunately, many countries in Africa invested only in knowledge and skills acquisition without right attitude and this has had a social cost such as corruption. Therefore, CEEG has been created to reverse moral capital decline in Malawi and beyond, through training, research, innovation and community outreach


To become a leader in Ethics and Governance in Africa through training, research, advocacy and community engagement


This Centre will serve as National Think Tank on matters of Ethics for strengthening leadership, Governance and Systems in Malawi and beyond.


To mainstream, institutionalize and promote ethics and governance, professionalism, moral character and standards as an investment to gain the moral capital dividend.

Centre Ownership and Governance

The multi-university centre of excellence is owned by UNIMA, MUBAS and KUHeS. The Centre of Excellence is housed at KUHES.


The centre will be run by the board which comprises principals from all the current constituent colleges of the University of Malawi. However, due to the de-linking which has produced three new universities namely Chancellor College, Kamuzu University of Health Sciences (KUHeS) and Malawi University of Business and Applied Sciences (MUBAS), the universities are the owners of CEEG and are therefore responsible for the appointment of the director of the centre. The director, with the oversight of the board, has set up a secretariat which runs the day to day operations of the organisation..
