Foreign Affairs minister Francis Kasaira has confirmed said the meeting was also attended by Zambia and South Africa whose transporters have also been caught in cross fire.

“Officials from Mozambique have assured us that security would be provided to our transporters,” said Kasaira.

Kasaira said following the meeting last week, Malawians are assured that there will not be fuel crisis in the country.

At least four Malawians and four trucks, three of them fuel tankers have been burnt in Mozambique.

Kasaira said the government will continue to talk to their counterparts in Mozambique so that Malawians can access the road to South Africa through Mozambique.

The Mozambique President Filipe Nyuse said last week he has finally agreed to meet the Renamo president Alfonso Dhlakama to find a lasting peace to the skirmishes

I dont know how this country lack visionary leadership. Nsanje to Beira is only 480 km. Why can’t they build an oil pipe line? Why can’t they rebuild the rail? Even a good bitumen road will be shorter distance

That would be good for Malawians indeed. The thing is, does Malawi Goverments understand the Maputo’s rulers state-of-spirit when it comes to kind of amicable and effective negotiations? It demands a very good homework. I’m not saying that Lilongwe leadership may not see other avenues, otherwise, to approach the now-unapproachable stuff!
