Staff portrait

Every month a new story of a staff member in St. Luke's. 

'Always forward'

I am Moses Chinula, I am 49 years old and Christian by faith. I did my primary and secundary school education in Mzuzu city north side of Malawi. I am married and have five children; 2 boys and 3 girls. 


I work as an orthopaedic clinician here in St. Luke's Hospital. I like working here because the working environment is conducive. Being a teaching institution, there is always something new to learn. 


My motto is to make St. Luke's Hospital well known country wide. I wish for orthopaedic surgeons to visit our facility to provide me with more knowledge and skills. 


In my free time I like watching soccer, especially English Premier League, on TV. I am a fan of Arsenal FC. I also enjoy jogging in the morning and listening to gospel musics. 

'Believe in yourself'

My name is Christopher Brian Mbeko and I work as a nurse and midwife in St. Luke's Hospital. Currently I'm working in female ward. As a nurse I provide physiological, psychological and spiritual care to the clients and patients who visit our hospital. I enjoy working in St. Luke's Hospital for many reasons. The first reason is the good Administrative office. They always look into welfare of the workers. The other reason is the patient centered services St. Luke's offers. This is very motivating for me because my goal is to provide the good quality of care. 


In my free time I like reading nursing and medical text books, novels and the bible. I also enjoy wathcing movies and playing football. 


I believe in myself and I know that I hav the potential to achieve anything in my future. I would love to upgrade myself to increase my nursing skills and to provide the best quality of care to the general public of Malawi. 

'Confidence is power'

I am Felister Mlekano and I work as a security officer in St. Luke's Hospital. I am in charge of the security team of the hospital and I am responsible for the attendance of all guards. I also walk around the premises myself to make sure everything is in good order. 

I work at St. Luke's Hospital because I wanted to help my community since Zomba is my home of origin. 


At my free time I like knitting, hand sewing and general cleaning at my home. As a Roman Catholic member I go to church every Sunday and I am also a member of the Catholic Women Organization. 


I try to motivate women who think they can't work as an officer at an institution. I believe confidence is power. If you have confidence in yourself you can achieve any goal. 

'Failure to me is not an option'

I'm Winasi Boma and I work as the Chief Hospital Administrator for St Luke's Hospital and its health centers. My responsibilities include  human, material and financial resources management, resources mobilization, strategic plan implementation and interaction with both local and international partners. I also ensure that everything that is done at St Luke's Hospital and all health centers is  in line with the values and beliefs of the Anglican Diocese of Uppershire. I always believe in change and quality through building effective teams at the work place. Everywhere I go, I always believe in contributing something positive for the good of the society. My dream is to contribute to solutions to the challenges the Malawi health system faces, so that we can have sustainable health services with high quality health care. We can generate a model that is unique to each facility, organization and district, like the one we have in Matope health center.


Outside work I like traveling both in Malawi and all over the world, because traveling gives me a chance to learn as well as experience other people's/countries values, beliefs and culture. I have a strong Christian faith and always believe in prayer as the only secret of success.
