Royal Norwegian Ambassodor to Malawi

Norwegian Ambassador to Malawi, Kikkan Haugen made the remarks Wednesday in Lilongwe during the commemoration of Norway’s National Day in Lilongwe.

He noted that Malawi was doing much be in the areas of human rights and rule of law as compared to many countries in the world.

Haugen promised to continue working with the government in these crucial areas.

“We are looking forward to continue working with the government on these crucial areas. We are hoping and expecting that the government will continue honouring this as the country is edging towards the next elections,” the Ambassador hoped.

He said as one of the very poorest countries of the world, Malawi needs to boost its economic development and private sector.

Haugen pointed out that state dominance, widespread corruption and lack of legislative reform are some of the bottlenecks that prevent Malawi from achieving the investment friendly climate the country desperately needs and deserves.

He said Norway is committed to Malawi and will continue being a partner and investor in key sectors like education, health, agriculture and human rights.

“We will continue to work hard to bring private sector investment to Malawi,” the ambassador added.

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Francis Kasaila observed that the Kingdom of Norway champions democratic order, promotes observance and enjoyment of human rights, peace and security across the global.

He explained that Norway continues to champion education and health for all and preservation of the environment for future generation.

Kasaila noted that since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries during early years of our independence, relations between our two countries have strengthened.

    On occasions like this it is better to just enjoy the food and drinks and refrain from talking rubbish and telling lies

    I was taken aback at the treacherous remarks by the Norwegian Ambassador that Malawi upholds human rights-rule,in the sense that,Norway is one of the advanced nations in the world and yet,its representative could utter such humbug statement.It is absolutely an abusive comments by Mr.Kikkan Haugen that must be unreservedly condemned by all freedom loving people not only in Malawi,but in all progressive nations of the world.Mr.Haugen could be right if he could mention the two Regions (South and Central) Malawi whereby people enjoy economic and political freedoms and rights while,in the North,people have been denied their economic and political rights for 53 years.Just recently,the ruling Party SG,confirmed my narration when she astonished overwhelming Malawians of different persuations by saying that a Northerner will not rule Malawi until Jesus comes.Could Mr.Haugen interpret this as a human right accord? In education system,the Northerners are hit with QUOTA SYSTEM that suppress the people to achieve their aspirations and on the whole,the Northerners are treated differently from the two provinces,there is no difference from the former apartheid regime in South Africa.During Banda’s tyrannous regime, thousands of Northerners languished in concentration camps and hundreds coerced into exile while there were none from the Central Malawi and a few from Southern Region.So to praise Malawi for adhering to human rights accords,is both untruthful and inhuman and Mr.Haugen must apologise to the Northerners for his unfair remarks.

    Why is it that the West is now talking good of Malawi? Don’t they know that this is painful to the opposition? The opposition expected negative responses from the West as we approach to the next elections. Ali m’madzi!!!!!!
