The veep Chimulirenji, who lost his parliamentary seat in last month’s election, was sworn-together with Mutharika to assume the presidency for a five-year term of office.

Press officer in the office of the vice-president, Charles Wahara, said Chimulirenji arrived in Mozambique to attend the summit on June 19  2019 at the Joaquim Chissano conference Centre.
Wahara said the State President Mutharika was invited to attend the summit but it had pleased him to delegate the Vice President Chimulirenji.
Meanwhile, Principal Secretary (PS) in the Ministry of Industry and Trade, Ken Ndala has said the US- Africa Business Summit is very crucial for Malawi.

“There is an opportunity for Malawi business sector to grow since the summit will draw a lot of experts, businesspeople and government authorities from Africa to interact with counterparts from the United States who want to link up with Africa including Malawi,” said Ndala.

The PS  further said that Malawi has been benefitting from such summits citing AGOA as one example of these benefits.

“For the past 16 years with AGOA, Malawi has been benefitting by exporting soya beans, textile and other commodities to different countries,” said the PS.

The summit will be opened by His Excellency Filipe Jacinto Nyusi, President of the Republic of Mozambique and will draw various African Heads of State.

End of Lomwe era. The 80 year old tippex president should be feeling the heat of being old with most of the contemporaries like Patrich Mbewe, Harry Thomson, Bingu wa Muthalika and many more dead. State funeral looming. This is a reality and please leave the country in peace and not in peaces.
