Malawi President, Prof. Arthur Peter Mutharika is expected to hold high level talks with British Prime Minister David Cameron, Queen Elizabeth II and Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote when he officially visits the United Kingdom later this month.

Information from Capital Hill indicates that the President’s meetings will centre around international cooperation and investment among other key areas.

The meeting with Cameron is expected to highlight Malawi government’s commitment in the execution of the Public Sector Reforms and Public Finance Management Reforms.

It will mainly touch on the execution and short-term successes of the reforms so far.

United Kingdom, suspended budgetary support due to Cashgate, is Malawi’s most important traditional cooperating partner owing to the history of colonization and later support either through the national budget and other extra-budgetary channels.

The encounter with Dangote in London will mainly zero in on investment in line with President Mutharika’s underlying vision of spurring economic growth through massive investment which will increase the country’s export base.

Dangote, through his Dangote Group, has been investing heavily across the African continent in energy, cement production, agriculture and financial sector among other areas.

The courtesy call on the Queen is going to cement Malawi-UK relations as the two countries forge ahead with 21st Century strategies for economic and social development.

The President will attend the Global African Investment Summit  which will attract over 1,000 qualified global investors and will be held at Central Hall, Westminister in London from December 1 to 2.

This is just trying to cover up this mapwevupwevu of public money. This trip will not bring any investment to Malawi apart from soothing the president’s appetite for external travel to beautiful countries.

Why is Malawi full of pessimistic people? If you don’t trust yourself who will? This is the reason why we are the poorest people in the world because we: 1.We are impatient; even God helps those that exercise patience with faith and hope. 2. We are conditioned to freebies since 1964 and classified as lazy people with beggars’ syndrome. 3. We don’t love our country and our leaders hence the reason for our poverty. 5. We only believe that a person can only be rich through thievery than hardworking. It’s high time our Legislatures preached hardworking, patience, resilience and having… Read more »

The queen is apolitical, so the meeting with her is of no benefit to Malawi. That is just peter’s own ego boosting to show that he has met the queen. He will be dismissed very quickly by the queen. It will be like this, thanks Peter for the courtesy call. How r u and the people of Malawi. Fine your majesty, how r u? I am fine Peter. Greetings to the people of Malawi, good bye. Thanks your majesty. Out he goes. Then someone shouts, Please let Another head of state come in as there is a long queue of… Read more »
