President Arthur Peter Mutharika revealed the development Tuesday in London when he briefed members of Royal African Society on efforts his government is making to empower the youth and women in the country.

He was speaking at a luncheon the society had organised for him.

Mutharika outlined efforts his government is making to uplift the country’s economy, fight corruption and empower women. He therefore, said government would include Beauty Technology to empower women to be self-employed.

British citizens, who disclosed to have resided in Malawi at some point in the past, attended the luncheon.

According to Mutharika, it was expected the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting would among others, discuss why most African countries are poor amid several resources while some countries which are rich do not have as much resources compared to some African countries.

Mutharika also assured potential investors of both, security of their investments and a huge market in Malawi despite its small size.

“Malawi is one of the smallest countries in the world, but it is part of the larger world market,” the Malawi leader assured.

Mutharika outlined opportunities Malawi has that include minerals, good market and security.

“You will be safe at home, at your work place and in between,” he further assured.

Earlier, Director of Royal African Society, Dr Nicholas Westcott CMG told Malawian journalists that Malawi as a country has opportunities in agriculture and other sectors which would put the country to a higher level of development.

There are only 30 female MP’s against 163 males. That’s a pathetic 16% especially when we look at the statistic against a target of 50/50 gender parity. Start from there bwana. We are tired of rhetoric year after year same stories with no tangible results. There’s just no political will to change the status quo. No wonder Malawi is where it is now.

Oh please! Beauty Technology when our girls and women are not educated enough? Can the president and the Royal African Society discuss proper courses and skills that are of immediate benefit to our economy. The starting point is to read Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs: you can’t think of beautifying yourelf when you don’t have food or hospitals have no medication…
