The Queen received the letters at a ceremony held at Buckingham Palace in London.

In a time-honoured ceremony, the Malawi High Commissioner and his wife Mary Chokani Mphonda were collected by a State landau, a red royal horse-drawn carriage and were escorted by Her Majesty’s Marshal of the Diplomatic Corps.

Mphonda and his wife were accompanied by members of the diplomatic staff, including Defence Attaché Colonel Sydney Linyama, press and protocol officer Kondwani Munthali and Mwai Dausi.

During the presentation, Mphonda delivered a message of best wishes from Malawi President Peter Mutharika, to Her Majesty the Queen.

Mphonda also assured Her Majesty of continued strong bonds of friendship between the two Governments and the people of Malawi.

On his tour of duty, Mphonda who has replaced Benard Sande, said after the presentation, “I am grateful to His Excellency the President, Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika, for the privilege to serve my beautiful country and its people at this position. I will, during my tour of duty, endeavour to sustain the cordial and excellent relations Malawi and the UK have enjoyed since 1964.

“ I will also herald Government priority areas of increasing trade and investment between Malawi and Britain and encouraging more British people to visit Malawi apart from different socio-cultural exchanges that currently exist.”

Mphonda was Chief of Protocol in the Malawi Government prior to his appointment as Malawi’s envoy to London and is a career diplomat, after serving in Washington DC in the United States of America and in Bonn, Germany, in previous tours of duty.

Typical slave mentality, as if wearing a suit is not enough he decided to dress in an English attire to impress the master. We need to emancipate ourselves from this inferior way of thinking

Why wearing morning suit to see the queen? Those things are worn on celebratory occasions like weddings or royal Ascot in UK. Let’s stop copying everything ife a Malawi..A simple smart suit would have been enough not those funny hats and tail coats..well done to the ladies at least they wore African is attire. You will not see a Nigeria diplomat wearing such kind of attire to present his papers to the Queen. .he will be in his full mkanjo regalia..let’s be real and be proud of our own identity. You ruined that photo opportunity.
