Malawi Development Network-London (MDNL) a London based charitable organisation committed to among other things, strengthening the Malawi Diaspora engagement in Greater London and beyond, has ushered in new executive committee.
MDNL is also aimed at contributing to strategic planning processes and public policy development in Malawi, promoting social cohesion amongst Malawians in Greater London and facilitating the exchange of innovative ideas for the development of Malawi.
The establishment of the network is therefore in response to calls by Malawians living in London to have its own association.
Subsequent to that meeting, the MDNL held its first Annual General Meeting during which an executive committee was elected for a term of one year.
The meeting was represented by both the Malawi Deputy High Commissioner to UK, John Tembo Jr and the Vice Chairperson of Malawi Association (UK) Ms Gertrude Chirambo.
The network is being led by lawyer Jarvis Matiya, Secretary is financial expert Rhodrick Kalumpha, Treasurer is Mike Kachere, Director of Planning and Strategy is Aaron Katemba, Director of Information and Research is Pia Likoya while Director of Community Services is Phyllis Chipojola.
