Malawi Investment Forum is a platform where the country sells its investment opportunities across the world – about 300 delegates are participating  at this year’s  two-day event.

Bushiri was given recognition as his Shepherd Bushiri Investments (Pty) Limited (SBI) has now operations in the country and  is creating  jobs.

SBI founder spotting a  blue suit, was given a seat in the front row together with the President and sat next to ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) regional governor for the center, Bintony Kutsaila. 

In his address, Minister of Industry, Trade and Tourism Henry Mussa recognized Bushiri and said his SBI is seeking partnerships with international investors in areas of mining, hospitality and sports academy.

Mussa said this year’s forum has attracted  both domestic and foreign direct investment into selected strategic public and private sectors.

He said the investment forum are becoming a successful platform for Malawi, saying the country has  made “notable gains” from hosting them.

Man, riches and leadership is different. If you think Bushiri can be a good leader then to those who are already led by a good leader as well, by the way where is God if Bushiri is the only answer?

This is a great initiative which should be cemented with robust follow ups. An execution committee should be put together to follow up on all expressed interest or signed MoUs. Kudos to Servant in Chief Peter Mutharika. Way to go!!!!

Pathfinder, this is not a forum where you can show how good you are at showering insults at others. If you are not happy with Nabanda’s comment regarding Peter Mutharika’s aging then just dwell on the subject and not insulting the person. Insulting others is due to the inability to think and reason. Two wrongs do not make a right. And by the way, you also have the same body part that you mention to insult Nabanda. Next time, try to think before posting your insults for public reading.
