Melania Trump arrives in Malawi Thursday,  First Lady returns to welcome her

US First Lady Melania Trump arrives in Malawi on Thursday,  during her solo African  trip that has taken her to Ghana  and  will see her visit other  African countries.

The tour, which also takes in Kenya  and Egypt, will focus on promoting health and education.

Meanwhile,  First Lady Getrude Mutharika returns home Wednesday in time to welcome the US Firs Lady.

Madam Mutharika accompanied President Peter Mutharika to the 73rd United Nations  General Assembly (Unga) that closed last Friday in New York.

State House press officer Chikondi Juma  confirmed that Madam Mutharika will arrive on Wednesday ahead of the  US First Lady;s arrival on Thursday.

“Issues to do with the welfare of children will take  centre stage since the two first ladies have similar interests and passion for children,” said Juma.

Juma said the Malawi First Lady is championing girl-child education and fighting early marriages through the Beautify Malawi Trust  project.

Ahead of her trip, Mrs Trump said that she was looking forward to seeing how the US can continue working together with Malawi to support a USAid programme that is focussed on children’s education.

Many past American first ladies have also made trips to the African continent, including Michelle Obama, Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton.

Melenia Trump’s visit to Africa could be made difficult because of the past actions and words of her husband. President Donald Trump reportedly used a vulgar and insulting term to describe African nations.

The  US President has denied making the comment.

“Jealousy is not manhood” let us give respect where it is due. Its not easy to convince the First Lady of the United States (flotus) to visit your country so APM and the first lady have done us proud. For the US govt to approve her visit it is clear that our scored card on democracy, fighting corruption, security and proper use of USAID was excellent no matter what others want us to believe. Let our first lady come to welcome her for she is a no ordinary figure. The last time a powerful western world first family visited Malawi… Read more »

This is what I don’t understand with Peter and his DPP-led government. Currently Malawi is short of cash especially with the K60b World Bank financial support withdrawal and yet you have a whole delegation heading to UNGA for the longest number of days than any delegates in the world. I have said this before, most, if not all, leaders from where Malawi is seeking financial and technical assistance, would be more than willing to travel to Malawi, if invited. Let these leaders spend money which they have in abundance. The absurdity of our first lady travelling back from where she… Read more »
