“Just to inform you that State House has now a Facebook page. We will use the page to alert you of functions involving the Presidency including the media releases,” Banda informed.
The page administrators uploaded a picture of President Banda of Wednesday’s function which she elevated Traditional Authority Chiwalo into Senior Chief at a function that took place at Dindi Grounds in Phalombe as presidential diary.
