Malawi Development Network established in London

Malawians in London have formed a grouping called Malawi Development Network- London (MDN-L) and organized a meeting to be held this Saturday at Kwacha House in London.

According to one of the group founders, Pia Likoya, the Malawi Development Network- London (MDN-L) has been established in response to various calls for the need for London to have its own association to cater for the Malawian Diaspora community.

“While several regions such as Leicestershire, Northampton, Nottingham among others have for a long time had well established and largely successful local organisations for their Malawian communities; London however, for some reason has seemed to lag behind. Consequently MDN-L is here to fill that lacuna,” Likoya told Nyasa Times in a statement.

He explained that the initial stages for the legal process to comply with the requirements of the UK Charity Commission are almost complete.

The founders – who include Prof. Mpalive Msiska, Watipaso Mkandawire, Jarvis Matiya, Janet Kathyola – announce that MDN-L is open for general membership.

The MDN-L meeting on Saturday, 13 July 2013 will start from 1pm at Kwacha House, 70 Winnington Rd. London N2 0 TX.
