Malawi Diaspora Forum (MDF) a grouping of diaspora Malawians will this Saturday, August 13th converge in Nottingham city for a conference on Malawi’s sickening situation to push an agenda for change.
The meeting which will start from 1:00 pm will be held at Park Inn Hotel on 296 Mansfield Road just after the roundabout across Forest Grounds near Hyson Green (Post Code NG5 2BT) will draw closer Malawians from across the United Kingdom, various prominent diaspora African nationals in England, political and human rights activists and other dignified ‘Friends of Malawi’.
Park Inn Hotel is located 10 minutes from Nottingham City Centre and just over a mile from Nottingham train station.
For those driving from all other destinations, the hotel is situated close to M1 Motorway junctions 25 and 26. For those travelling on a bus from the Nottingham city centre can board buses number 15, 16, 17, 87 88 and 89 to the venue and the bus stop is first just after the Forest fields roundabout. The hotel is just directly opposite on the right hand side.
And for those travelling by tram from the Train station can alight at Forest Grounds tram stop and walk across to the hotel (it’s a five minute walk)
The meeting will run under a banner ‘Malawi Situation: Agenda for Change – Now or Never’ and is expected to discuss among possible means and ways to help the southern African country peace and stability.
At its Manchester Meeting last month MDF issued a 91 day ultimatum for President Bingu wa Mutharika to step down from office citing bad governance, muddled economic situation, disrespect for the rule of law and political intolerance as examples that the Malawian leader has overstayed the warmth of the Malawian people.
Malawi Diaspora Forum was formed on May 21 at a Conference which was held at Novotel Hotel in Leeds City, Yorkshire in England on Malawi Situation, a second meeting was held in Manchester a month later.
Since formation MDF has held talks with international human rights campaigners, organisations, governments and supports Malawi’s civil society including religious organisation in their efforts in bringing back freedom and democracy to the Malawian population.
Membership to the grouping is voluntary and invitation to the meeting is open to all Malawians and interested parties.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
