Officials from the ministry of Gender have confirmed that the two children have failed to make it to the summit due to delayed processing of their travel documents.
The summit is continental forum that gives children a chance to discuss issues affecting them, to inform policy formulation.
Ministry of Gender spokesperson,  Pauline Kaude said World Vision Malawi which was tasked to identify and process the documents failed to complete  passport processing last week owing to blackouts, and network intermittent at the Immigration department.
World Vision Malawi Communication Manager,  Lizzie Lombe while regretting Malawi’s failure to send delegates to the summit, said they were given a short notice from the Ministry of Gender.
The African Children Summit which started on Monday in Nairobi, Kenya , ends on Wednesday.
