Zhang said health is on top of the agenda of China-Malawi relations.

“ Every year, the Chinese government, through the Chinese medical team, donates some medicine and medical equipment to this country. It is our hope that this donation will help in a small way to alleviate the drug shortage in the public hospitals,” he said

Zhang pledged that China will continue to keep in close contact with Malawi to expand cooperation in health.

Now our colleagues from Nyika Republic are very happy that the supplies will not go to the South? Why do you need the Federation of Nyika within Malawi? Selfish motive will take you nowhere.
