The meeting, which lasted over five hours in Lilongwe, discussed the matter of refugees, political situation and transportation of goods on waterways and others modes of transport.

The matter of addressing critical hunger as a result of climatic change that hit the three nations was also tabled in the meeting.

President Mutharika announced after the meeting that Malawi will procure 1.2 metric tonnes of maize to feed over three million people who are affected by critical hunger in that country.

Mutharika told journalists that the three Presidents also discussed issues to do with Shire-Zambezi waterway project, a dream project of former President Bingu wa Mutharika who was his brother.

Malawi and Zambia, want to reopen the Shire-Zambezi waterway with access to the Mozambican port of Chinde which would slash costs of doing business for Malawi by 60 percent.

The route hasn’t been in use since the 1970s when civil war erupted in Mozambique. Reopening it could be a major boon to Malawi and Zambia’s economies.

Mozambique President Peter Filipe Nyusi said his government will work with Malawi and other countries on the waterway project to improve transportation for landlocked neighbouring countries.

Yes, we need an airplane for our President, just like the Zambia and Mozambique Presidents have their own official planes. Osati Pulezident wathu azikhala pa ndege ndi malova onunkha thukutha olo ukweche ayi (Like their counterparts, Malawi Presidents have important and confidential business to be conducted in more comfortable environments than is provided by public transport.)

African presidents will never change.They talk the talk but they can’t walk the walk.Mozambique & Zambia are right next door,they couldn’t have just come by road?It shows how much confidence they have in their own transport networks.So next time APM needs to visit Zambia or Mozambique he’ll also charter an expensive plane?Hopeless men.

Dr. Saulos Chilima looks more of the Presidential material. Look at his steps with Lungu. No wonder you keep scoring high. This sounds very good to me and not His Excellency the President Dr. Geo Turtle Fart

Not for hate but Chilima in tinted looks like a body guard. Why?
