President Mutharika to get an award at the dinner

Mutharika flew out Malawi on Monday April 13 and said he was going to Washington DC in United States where he said was going to deliver a keynote speech at the International Conservation Caucus Gala.

It emerged that the 2015 U.S. Congressional International Conservation Gala was already held on March 19, 2015 at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.

But State House press officer Justice Mponda said from Washington DC that there will be a second edition of the gala on Wednesday April 22.

The programme from the organisation website said it will be a Congressional Dinner focusing on issues of conservation and development in Africa. Mutharika and Ondimba will be special guests.

State House press officer said President Mutharika will be honoured for working tirelessly towards trans-border solutions on conservation in Southern Africa.

“Malawi is a signatory to the 2014 Arusha Declaration on Regional Conservation and under the leadership of President Mutharika, Malawi has declared total war on combating wildlife and environmental Crime,” Mponda quoted the statement from the organisers.

Apart from the conservation gala, President Mutharika also said he is scheduled to hold discussions with various world leaders and officials on a wide range of issues affecting Malawi.

Among those leaders to have an audience with President Mutharika are Ms. Dana Hyde, Chief Executive of the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), Mr. James C. Nicholas, Executive Partner for Global Business Resources USA and his team.

Mutharika will also have an audience with professors from the Dayton University, OHIO, and the Chief Executive of Universal Leaf Company among others.

    Let Malawians know and practice constructive criticism. Kumangotsutsa poti ndine wotsutsa kapena anandimana Malambe juice kaya udindo will one day come back to us. So when ill informed ideas turn negative, they counter attack. Hahahahaha.

    I also had the same question, if they say Trans boarder, what do they mean? Malawi and Tanzania are at logaheards, concerni ng the Lake Malawi border wrangle, and currently Malawians and other foreigners are being burnt, tortured, cut and killed in Republic of South Africa, what is he doing? How about the killing and abduction of people with albnoism? Western nations organisations, why do you accredit our African dictators and later when that tendancy is shown, you backtrack?

    Since when did he work tirelessly for conservation. He just got elected last year. See this is how African presidents who are clowns are interested in, making themselves feel self important. Hard working proper African leaders cannot accept to waste time playing up like muppets.

    Peter Mutharika the rock and pillar remains the darling of Malawians shaming the haters nyasa inclusive

  18. Timabungwe ta ku USA tidziyenda. They should come to Malawi and see how Dzalanyama is being depleted and how Chikangawa has disappeared and is still being completely finished and assess government approach to all this.

  19. edda mwalweni says:

    Malawi is slowly becoming a damping site for fake recognitions to our presidents. I don’t remember anything good and worthy recognized done by our poor headed Peter.

  29. WESM MALAWI says:

    As WESM , we are not surprised with the award. President Mutharika has gone into the history being for being the first President in Southern Africa to attend International Wildlife Day which took place at Parliament Campus in Lilongwe about a month ago. Bravo our President


  31. Teacher says:

    Which trans-border solutions has he worked on? Are these organisations really serious or it is just their own way of keeping themselves busy? What has Muthalika done apart from rendering us as the poorest and some fools go on to award him as an achiever? Masanje eni eni

    Akunama akukachosetsa dzino!
