Chakwera as seasoned churchman who was at the helm of the Assemblies God of Malawi as president for over two decades before joining active politics.

According to information sourced, CDI-AFRICA is a grouping of political parties across the globe whose principles hinge on the tenets of democracy and the rule of law at national and international level.

In an interview with Nyasa Times, Chakwera said he was “honoured” to be “decorated.”

This is the first time ever for Malawi to receive such recognition by such a high profile political institution.

According to a statement from the MCP politiburo, “the election of the MCP President to this powerful noble institution is a clear demonstration that Chakwera has a global statue than people can comprehend.”

The statement also said Chakwera is expected to meet Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa during the same tour.

Other countries represented at CDI-AFRICA include Columbia, Sweden, Norway, Egypt, Germany, Algeria, Kenya, Senegal, Cape Verde, Namibia, Sao Tome, among others.
