Muluzi will lead the Malawi delegation after being delegated by President Mutharika amid speculation that the governing ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)  is working on offering United Democratic Front (UDF) president Atupele Muluzi, son to the former leader, the position of second vice-president.

Atupele was appointed Minister of Natural Resources, Energy and Mining by President Mutharika in a touted lean cabinet of 20 members.

A letter from Ministry of Foreign Affairs and External Cooperation addressed to Muluzi’s Chief of Staff stated that it has pleased the President to delegate the former leader to the event.

Confirming the development the former President said he was happy with the gesture and he had accepted to travel to Lusaka for the event.

He commended Mutharika for showing a spirit of reaching out to the other sectors of society on political, governance and economic issues of Malawi.

The former President also applauded Mutharika for inviting presidential candidates in the May 20 Tripartite Elections to luncheon on October 9 saying it underlined his commitment to work with everybody in the interest of the country.

“This is very commendable. I urge the President to also consider Members of Parliament from other political parties in his delegation outside the country whenever resources are available,” he said.

He said the move would help the MPs to be given exposure to opportunities because they are new.

Muluzi, who was appointed Malawi’s Special envoy to Swaziland, met President Mutharika at Sanjika Palace in Blantyre where the former leader briefed him on the progress of mediation talks on the democratic process taking place in Swaziland.

Wish You Well, or what you call your name and all your friends, U R demons and devils… Why do you want to confuse people and bring problems where there is no problems? Chilima is the sitting VP of Malawi and he has been assigned to several assignmen inside and outside malawi and he is in good books with his boss…. Umbuli ukupwetekani, make a research in other countries where there is more peace and development to why is this so…you will find out that the retired Presiden ts and retired COs are put to good use by the sitting… Read more »

Does it require a full vice president kuti akaonele magule ndi mpira. Even Muluzi is more high powered. Next time send me and let Chilima be in his office sorting out civil service and Muluzi should go to Swaziland. That is more important business.
