Mutharika, who has since returned home, stated that the unified development drive in areas of industrialization and farming are key economic hopes for Africa and Malawi.

He said Malawi cannot afford to watch on the sidelines as the rest of Africa develops and vowed to increase commitment to industrialise the country and increase business opportunities for local and foreign investors.

The President said he has renewed hopes for Malawi’s development after holding bilateral talks with 15 presidents, former presidents and other reputable individuals and he believes Malawi will move forward in its development programs.

He cited his meeting with former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo as a great eye opener as the former president said Malawi has a great investment potential and can be enhanced because of great bilateral ties between Nigeria and Malawi.

On the Malawi -Tanzania lake dispute, Mutharika said he expects positive outcome for both countries when they keep meeting on mediation.

He said other mediation talks will take place in due course.

Mutharika also took advantage of the summit that ended on Saturday to meet in camera President of Tanzania JakayaKikwete, South Africa’s former president Thabo Mbeki and Joachim Chissano, former president of Mozambique–Reporting by Gerald Viola, Mana

What is the mediation on the lake about? Discuss joint economic use under license or taxes, and not giving up portions of the lake.

Surely, we are a sorry state. I recall the other day my Foreign Minister saying he has asked the Gender Minister to talk to the Ethiopian Foreign Minister to consider Chimango Chirwa as Malawi Ambassador to Ethiopia and the AU when he has not presented his papers of credence. Chaponda do you trust Kaliati to do a good diplomatic job or you want to embarrass Malawi and APM?
