The President returned to the country via a Ethiopia Airlines  commercial flight from and he has also flown on the same commercial flight as former president Joyce Banda  previously sold off the country’s presidential jet on a batter trade of with Paramlount Group.

Due to the ailing state of Malawi’s economy, Mutharika has been forced to utilise passenger planes, with his bag having gone missing during one of his international trips.

The President described the meeting as a success saying this year’s theme “Harnessing the demographic dividend through investment in the youth,” which was proposed by Malawi, has been adopted.

Mutharika explained  it is expected that  25 million jobs will be created for the youths in all African countries through the ADB funding.

“Three things have been transpired during the meeting that’s we have seen the adoption of this year’s theme which was focusing on youths, the election of the first lady Gertrude Mutharika as President of Organization of African First Ladies Against HIV and AIDS (OAFLA) and election of Justice Tujilane Chizumila as African Court Judge,” he explained.

Mutharika added that the election of the first lady  and judge Chizumila compliments his wish to see Malawians holding region and international positions.

The African Court was established by African countries to ensure the protection of human rights and people’s rights in Africa.

During his stay in Ethiopia Mutharika also held talks with Tanzanian and Zambian Presidents John Magufuli and Edgar Lungu respectively.

Sizachirendo izi. Bingunso antero koma ndalama zipangopita kwa macadet okha okha pomwe anyamata okonda zipani zina akungotuwa. This news does not bring any excitement to any God-fearing Malawian. I will rule the Gambia for 1 billion years.
