Chimulirenji goofs in speech at US-Africa summit: Says Malawi got independence in 1994

Malawian Vice President (VP) Everton Chimulirenji made a goof in his speech which he was reading on Wednesday during the opening of the 12th US-Africa Business Summit in Maputo, Mozambique when he said Malawi has enjoyed peace since her independence in “1994” yet the country will on July 6 be commemorating 55th independence.

Vice President Chimulirenji: Oops he goofs in prepared speech

Chimulirenji addressed the summit while reading word by word in his prepared speech and did not made a correction when he goofed.

“Malawi is today’s choice as a location for foreign direct investment and tourism, we have put in place deliberate policies and strategies to enhance collaboration with the private sector and ensure that  their concerns are taken on board all the time,” said Chimulirenji.

He also had pronunciation problems with some words such as “tourism”.

In his speech, Chimulirenji said Malawi welcomes the Africa Free Trade Area as a tool that will boost exports and other trade opportunities in the country.

“One of the advantages that Malawi is expecting from Africa Free Trade Area is that it will help in improving the country’s productive capacity to have quality products, as it is one of the areas that need improvement,” said Chimulirenji.

He disclosed that Malawi has also devised measures to woo foreign investors through the establishment of the Malawi Investment and Trade Center (MITC) through the One Stop Service Center where investors get all the necessary investment requirements under one roof in less than five days.

Chimulirenji further said Malawi also offers investor friendly climate with competitive tax and non-tax incentives package.  He said among others, Malawi offers both general and sector specific incentives such as tax allowances for the agro-manufacturing sector.

“There are investment opportunities in the private sector as prioritized by the government of Malawi in energy, manufacturing, agro-processing, tourism, infrastructure and information communication technology (ICT),” emphasized the VP.

The Summit has brought together more than 1,000 U.S. and African private sector executives, international investors, senior government officials and multilateral stakeholders.

I think His Excellency the vice president of the Republic of Malawi is a true representation of the majority of ordinary Malawians,thats the beauty o democracy where the majority choose their own leaders,Chimulilenji is an ordinary malawian who u can find in almost every village,the likes of of a school teacher,ordinary civil servant,the businessman at a trading center,the pastor in a local church..he is the real representative of a Malawian,not fluent or eloquent in the Queens language ,he is an average Malawian walking down a Market place…after all i ucheck the qualification of a president are the simplest compared to… Read more »

I am not surprised at all with all these comments, let us face it all my Fellow Malawians. 1. God does not use people with Characters- read the Bible from Genesis to Revelations 2. God qualifies the unqualified and He uses them to advance His Kingdom so whether Our Vice President is educated or not but God appointed Him simple. 3. Jesus had no shape nor handsome—He had an ugly looking that His own people Disliked Him to the last drop of His blood. 4. Malawi will be blessed because of Vice President Chimulirenji not Peter, Our Vice President has… Read more »

Go to state house and tell APM about Exodus 20 verse 15, which says, “Thou shall not steal”. You are preaching to wrong people my Apostle. APM need repentance more that we Malawian. You can also fast for him God should have mercy on him.
