Paul Hinks, Chief Executive Director of US Energy Company who is also the Chairperson of Copper Council disclosed this during the lecture on Democratization and Economic Self Reliance in Africa which was presented by President Peter Mutharika in New York.

After the lecture, the Malawi President also met the members of the Council on Foreign Relations at their offices.

Hinks said Africa needs more and reliable power generation capacity for sustainable development if the Sustainable Development Goals are to be achieved.

His intervention came after President Mutharika in his lecture cited power outrages as main set back in Africa especially in Malawi where more hours are spent in darkness.

The US Energy Company is currently providing power in Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania among other African Countries.

Responding to the gesture, President Mutharika thanked Paul Hinks for the quick response to his lecture and assured all the members present of maximum security both commercial and physical while in Malawi.

“When you come to Malawi in 2016, it is anticipated that power woes facing the Country would be minimized. Malawi is a free country with a legal frame work conducive to investors.” the President said.

    Tsono inu a Nyasa Times that’s not Paul Hinks and even the name tags says he is not.secondly this is not a new project cos it was discussed before in 2013.hope this time around there is action.

  2. Lu.. says:

    Malawi is free country and conducive to investors? Kkkkkkkkk, Mr president, did you tell them about the taxes awaiting them? Did you tell them about the rampant corruption? Dud you tell them it’s the only free country with no history of civil wars since independence, but still enjoys social-economic and demographic parameters similar to most war torn countries like Rwanda, sierra Leone? Did you tell them that even the EU is surprised that despite huge investments all our neighbours are doing well except us? Did you tell them that none of the foreigners coming for this project should not be gay coz we hate them so much?

    Has this mzungu been to Malawi? Is he a donor or a bizness man? What was he doing at a lecturenon foreign relations? I am confused. How can he commit to establishing a plant without saying what the source of power would be? Hydro, nuclear, coal, or solar. What capacity? Very poor reportng.

  11. guguh says:

    Nyasatimes please verify your news first.i found the name US energy company to be so vague and googled just to be sure..didn’t find any company with that name that provides such services. But the name Paul Hinks is associated with a company Symbion Power.

    What I’m saying is this is half baked reporting(by presidential press secretary ) is.below standard. We can do better…iiishhhh!

    Security, even personal security, is VERY compromised in Malawi. Everyone knows this. It is second only to poverty. And the two combined, you get a toxic environment!
    The government had better get busy and fix this problem; it is one of the hindrances to economic development. No question.
