A source in the ministry of foreign affairs told Nyasa Times that a list of delegation that will go with the President to UK has been vetted .

The source said Mutharika has been invited to speak at London School of Economics at the summit themed “Africa within a Global Context,” will feature an interdisciplinary research conference and a transnational business conference focused on economic development in the African continent.

The LSE Africa Summit is an annual gathering that showcases Africa’s contributions to the world and fosters debates on the challenges facing the continent.

Some past speakers include Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Vice-President of Nigeria; Jean Louis Billon, Minister of Commerce of Cote d’Ivoire; and Acha Leke, Senior Partner at McKinsey & Company.

According to the prominent university, the 2016 LSE Africa Summit will explore how nations in Africa can capitalise on opportunities and address challenges shaped by their position in a Global Context.

It features a research conference that moves beyond conventions in provocative and practical debates between scholars, policy-makers and practitioners, as well as a business conference that challenges business leaders, government representatives, and multinational corporations to think beyond investment on the continent.

This year’s Summit will also feature the launch of the LSE Africa Centre, part of the LSE Institute of Global Affairs.

The goal of the Africa Centre is to leverage LSE’s expertise to grow a global and interdisciplinary focus on Africa and build a locus for students, faculty, and members of the wider Africanist community to come together.

Is he gonna have an interpreter? This dude can’t pronounce English words.

Zanga Phee!

Wastage of resources no impact on that i guess stay home Mr President.See my name.


Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! Let’s hope APM doesn’t attempt to comment on economics as he doesn’t have the foggiest idea on the subject. If he is open to questions at the end of his talk, he could be seriously embarrassed. Personally I don’t think he realises what he has let himself in for, puffed up as he is by his own importance. As the leader of one of the poorest countries in the world he should have the humility to shun such an invitation. How will his audience view Malawi after hearing him speak?

School of Economics? Pardon Me, but if this institution is ‘THAT GREAT’, HOW COME OUR WORLD IS IN A TOTAL FINANCIAL LOCK-DOWN a.k.a. A COMPLETE FINANCIAL MESS?


I will not understand Mutharika. He ignored his constitutional duty to appear in parliament to answer questions and has ignored to meet PAC. Yet he wants to address university students just because it is UK!


Nthawi yolanda dziko ija yafika. Asayiwale miyado chifukwa akupitilatu.

Mwina poti mkuluyu alibe manyazi ndinso nzeru za umunthu. Tsono adzikati chiyani kulankhula kwake poti kwao kuno economic yamukanika kwa mtu wa galu. It’s like inviting somebody from Sodom and Gomorrah to come and preach about purity. Who can take that preaching seriously.

Mr Presisident. I will advise you to go for speech therapy as people find difficult to comprehend what you say. Kodi ndi zoona munali aprofessor ku America. Ana asukulu amalondola zochokela mukamwa mwanu? Ine ndimavutikatu kuti ndinve mukutantauza chani. U will tell us how it feels to be president of the poorest country in the whole world


The guy failed to meet his people through parliament and couldnt honour a scheduled meeting with his own clegy but is keen to honour a request to speak to a university outside his country!

Malawians hope you will not let them down during your April tour of Britain which will include the prestigious London School of Economics and Political Science.Hopefully,intricate questions will arise concerning the faux of the country’s economic trend which has put Malawi on awkwardly position globally.As you have dumped tons of unquiet Lomwe kinsmen in positions of influence,it would put you right in the middle of confusion and shameful positions.Candidly,we must expect portentous outcome and also expect the controversial issue of CORRUPTION in your government to arise.BON VOYAGE!!!
