5 countries postpone Malawi Trade Fair participation due to political instability

Malawi Confederation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) has postponed the Malawi International Trade Fair after five countries pulled out due to political uncertainty in the country.

Malawi International Trade Fair postponed to August due to political uncertainty.

The trade fair was scheduled to take place from June 20 to 30 under the theme ‘achieving competitiveness through integration into regional value chains.

MCCI says in a statement the trade fair has now been rescheduled to August from August 6 to 15, 2019.

MCCI says Indonesia, Tanzania, Kenya, Zambia and China had pulled out leaving Zimbabwe alone as an international exhibitor due to the political tension prevailing in the country following the May 21 presidential election results which the opposition Malawi Cingress Party (MCP) and UTM claim were manipulated in favour of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) candidate Peter Mutharika.

“Being an international trade fair, participation of international exhibitors is key at the MITF,” says MCCI.

MCCI says it hopes by August, the political uncertainty and tension would have been cleared

Political instability is diplomatic talk for politically motivated violence.
And for this, we simply thank oChakwera and Mia, and their backward MCP

The stupid report should say that the elections were decided by tippex. We want to know who provided tippex. We already know who printed 800, 000 fake ballot papers! We also know those who accepted bribes. We are also ready.

It won’t be cleared bcoz that is time when Malawians will be going to second poll for presidency.

Whether someone like it or not Malawi will be setting precedence this time around as presidential votes will be nullified.

Prepare for second coming vote.
