US Ambassador to Malawi, Virginia Palmer: New chancery to be build in Lilongwe

According to a brief statement issued by the US Embassy to Nyasa Times,  U.S. Ambassador to Malawi Virginia Palmer  says  her country and Malawi have enjoyed  “ steadfast” partnership since independence in 1964.

“ I am delighted that my government has committed to building a new U.S. Embassy in Lilongwe as a very physical demonstration of our ongoing commitment to our partnership with Malawi,” Palmer said as quoted by the statement.

The current U.S. Embassy chancery, built in the early 1970s, no longer provides adequate space for our expanding work in Malawi.  We hope the new, state-of-the-art U.S. Embassy compound will be ready for occupancy early in the next decade,” said Ambassador Palmer in the statement.

Parliament, Capital hill and Judiciary headquarters located same area and you don’t need to change.


Where along presidential way.

Deep thought

This is strategic positioning. The Chinese have built an embassy in the same place where US is coming. The Chinese embassy is at a very prominent place on the road to state house. The american embassy is in a hidden place near the wild life sanctuary. The US want also to be on the road to state house as the Chinese position gives to the Malawi public a perception that China is more powerful than US and all embassies.

When completed the USA should give the old embassy to Israel,we would love to have a Jewish embassy in Malawi.Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
