    I knew Dr. Charles Malata way back in 1983. He introduced himself to our family as he was our relation on my father’s side. I am so impressed with his achievements and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

      Dr Malata was one of the hardest working people in his class. He still works hard.
      We can all follow that example in whatever we do.
      I wish you the best in your studies.
