‘‘The training being provided to our people here will go along way in assisting many Malawians in our hospitals. We don’t take such a gesture from you for granted,’’ Mutharika told Hu.

In response, Hu Heping who is also the acting Governor of the Province assured President Mutharika of continued support from the province to the people of Malawi adding that the Shaanxi Province is looking for deeper corporation between it and Malawi.

‘‘Malawi is one of our best friends in Africa. And both Shaanxi and Malawi have many things to share for the benefit of the two partners. We need a deeper coporation in many other areas between Shaanxi and Malawi,’’ said Hu.

In Shaanxi, President Mutharika took time to visit Malawian medical practitioners and interns that have been enrolled at the Shaanxi Hospital for further studies.

The students assured President Mutharika that the training opportunity in China is timely and relevant to Malawi needs and that the knowledge they shall gain, shall be used to improve medical service delivery in Malawi.

While still at the hospital, President Mutharika and the First Lady were also taken through a demonstration of online medical diagnosis system link between Shaanxi hospital which is to be used by Malawian and Chinese doctors in consulting each other to conduct medical diagnosis and procedures on-line.

The Malawian medical practitioners are also being trained on this facility.

All the ‘goodies’ have a price and in most cases we have staked land. Its amazing how many Chinese own pieces of land in rural areas. Shouldn’t we have Affirmative Action where land in cities is being grabbed by foreigners, pushing the indigenous Malawians in city peripherals? Have you noticed the so many plots being perimeter fenced? These plots belong to Malawians of foreign origin, not the locals.

Shame on Goodall! Wakalamba. He can’t even stand up. Does it mean there are no younger people who can do his job? Come on! Malawians are better than this. Why is there no retirement age in politicians? Waba zokwanila, he needs to go and enjoy all the stolen money with his family. What is he really bringing from China that will benefit the youth???

They will come back to Malawi and work in hospitals which do not have equipment, they will soon go and work somewhere. Improve our hospitals so that people can be motivated to work, not only hospitals but even our schools. We have people who are well qualified, but their places of work do not motivate them.
