US First Lady to vist Malawi

The  US first lady discussed her plans Wednesday at a reception for the spouses of foreign leaders and others participating in the annual U.N. General Assembly.

The first lady of Malawi, Getrude Mutharika and her counterparts from  Ghana  and Kenya attended the event and Mrs. Trump recognized each one individually.

Melania Trump said is she’s looking forward to learning about the issues that children living on the continent face, as well as appreciating Africa’s history and culture .

“This will be my first time traveling to Africa and I am excited to educate myself on the issues facing children throughout the continent, while also learning about its rich culture and history,” the first lady said in the statement.

Malawi and other coutries on her itinerary have worked closely with the U.S. Agency for International Development, which is helping organize the trip.

She recently launched a U.S.-based effort focused on the well-being of children.

Mrs. Trump plans to travel without President Donald Trump, who was roundly criticized earlier this year after his private comment about “shithole countries” in Africa was leaked to journalists.

According to Malenia Trump communications director Stephanie Grisham, the White House “will release details in the coming weeks.”

Mrs Trump indicated a gentler approach, saying “we are a global society and I believe it is through open dialogue and the exchanging of ideas that we have a real opportunity to learn from one another.”

She will see first hand what life in Malawi is really like and not how it is painted by President Mutharika. Hopefully the Malawi Tourist Board will take the opportunity to present the country as a tourist destination. Let’s hope there are no blackouts during her visit.

“Through open diakgue and exchanging ideas we have a great opportunity to learn from one another”. (But not with APM). This Melania’s a genius and well-briefed!

During salutations, the American first lady will be shocked to learn that her Malawi counterpart Is Madam Dr. Professor. I pray the visitor does not go into a chat about her hostess’s university teaching career.

This is an opportunity to showcase Malawi on a global stage. Where is Dept of Tourism; where is Brand Malawi? Malawi has failed dismally to position itself as an attractive tourist destination due to budgetary constraints and yet we have Rihanna, Madonna and now the US first lady visiting our shores. I bet Malawi has no credible program to get maximum mileage from global TV stations like CNN and BBC. This would be a freebie marketing for our country. The fact Malawi has been chosen amongst three big economies in Africa speaks volumes. But then we have leaders in critical… Read more »

You’re right. She can visit “shithole” states like Mississippi which look like a third world country and call it quits.

She must really come and see how messy our cities are. It is indeed a shithole country without proper sanitation and electricity while the Chapondas has starched US dollars in the bedrooms. Long live the shithole country.

Thanks Mrs Trump for visiting shithole countries where corruption is part of development. People going to sleep without food and sleeping on a sack without a blankets without power hence the ruling elite keeps on telling the whole world that things is ok but on the ground things isn’t ok.
