Parliament’s spokesperson Ian Mwenye said the meeting will last for five weeks.

However, Mwenye could not say whether president Lazarus Chakwera would physically be in the Chamber to deliver the State of the Nation Address (Sona) or he would deliver it though a video link as a preventive measure for the Covid-19.

“We will communicate later whether he will physically come to the House or not,” said Mwenye.

This will be a 49th session of parliament and the first to be addressed by president Chakwera since his election on June 23, 2020.

Being the first Sona he better show up in person , probably trim the number of members in the building to comply with Covid guidelines. His presence is symbolic. Let him set the tone for the house. We don’t want to hear the usual long speech. Make it simple, short but full of substance.
