Kagame to visit Malawi to hold bilateral talks with Chakwera

Rwandan President Paul Kagame is due to arrive in Malawi on August 11 2020 for a two-day official visit in what would be viewed as a show of confidence from international leaders, Nyasa Times has learnt.

President Kagame: Here I come

According to an officials at Foreign Affairs ministry,  President Lazarus Chakwera and First Lady Monica Chakwera will host the Rwandan leader and his wife “on a 2 days state visit beginning on the 11th of August, 2020 at New State House in Lilongwe. “

The Malawi and Rwandan leader are expected to hold bilateral talks.

Kagame last visited Malawi in 2007 when Bingu wa Mutharika was president and  inaugurated a  3.3km road named after him.

Chakwera, who won the June 23 fresh presidential election, recently said  he had spoken sto Kagame “as part of my quest to forge strategic partnerships towards the strengthening of Capable Democratic Developmental States across the Great Rift Valley.”

He said the aim is “to leverage the bounties of our natural and human resources for the shared prosperity of our peoples.”

Kagame is revered for stopping Rwanda’s genocide and engineering what admirers call an economic miracle.

In 2000, Kagame inherited a country that had been torn apart by genocide. But he has rebuilt the country to a stable, prosperous, unified and, in large part, reconciled.

Social services, such as education, healthcare, housing and livestock are  provided to the needy, with no distinction of ethnicity or region of origin – two forms of discrimination that characterised the governments leading up to the genocide against the Tutsi, which Kagame, as leader of the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF), brought to an end.

But his critics see a despot who crushes all opposition and rules through fear

Chakwera, on his part is advancing a mantra of clearing the rubble that has put Malawi into ruins under the previous regime of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

My people Rwanda of Kagame has nothing to teach Malawi. I am Rwandan and knows better that all about Kagame and his propaganda. Kagame is ruthless killer who is still assassinating political opponents. He runs a war in Congo for minerals, and he lies to get donors money to build his own buildings in Kigali Central, just to show off, while the majority of Rwandans are starving and don’t even have clean water.
Never wish Malawi to emulate Kagame’s ways, it very dangerous.

Kagame does not associate with mediocrity which, as we have seen so far, is at the heart of Chakwera’s administration. That is why he has rescinded his decision to come to Malawi. Mwagwa nayo.

It is not fake news, Kagame was scheduled to come BUT he has changed his decision after seeing that Chakwera is clueless. Kagame does not want to be associated with stupidity and hypocrisy. MUSOVA.

Because it isn’t. In fact, the area in which Rwanda is excelling well is propaganda. It is good at projecting an image of itself which lures people into believing that its president Kagame has accomplished miracles, though the majority of his citizens are living in worse conditions than they were before the 1994 genocide.

Are you serious? I think there is sometging wrong in your brain. Anyway, I am from Rwanda and live in Kigali. We in Rwanda do not use propaganda as you are saying but results are saying themselves. The problem for you is maybe the jealous that characterize many people. Try to have positive jealous that will lead or direct you to copy what my hero is doing in Rwanda and for Rwandans. Of course my hero is P Kagame

You’re obviously deluded and haven’t visited Rwanda. Go to Kigali and compare it with your dusty Lilongwe. Visit any government school or hospital in Rwanda and compare it with the nyasi you have in Malawi. Visit any public office in Rwanda and marvel at their efficiency. Go to lake Kivu and admire the quality of hotels there. The roads in Rwanda are tarred and have streetlights, even in low income neighbourhoods. The country attracts serious investors VW, Marriott, Radisson Blu, IBM, CISCO all have branches in Rwanda. Those Rwandese you see in Malawi are cadets who were hacking others with… Read more »

Before indulging in blind friendship, the current government needs to sit back and think carefully. In most cases it pays maintaining already established diplomatic ties. Sit back and delve deeply the origins of the economic bedrock of Rwanda, find out why their troops are still part of the protracted war being fought in DRC. I worked in DRC with Rwandan troops and therefore have first-hand information for their interests in that country. One shouldn’t be cheated that their administration in Kigali is excellent based on their expert utilisation of their local resources, never. They are basically conduits of the western… Read more »

Desiderata you’re just a hater!
If DRC is not able to use it’s own resources to develop it’s own people let’s not blame Rwanda.
DRC has had those minerals since the days of Mobutu Seseseko and what tangible development did they achieve?
If Rwanda is benefiting, that’s better than sending everything to Belgium and France which is what DRC Dictators including Kabila have always done.
Let Kagame teach us his ways

Vision 2020 failed due to umbava starting from Bakili Muluzi’s regime. Nobody told Malawians to start stealing taxpayers money to enrich themselves.
