US Senators meet Mutharika: Pledge America support to Malawi
United States of America (USA) Senators Friday met President Peter Mutharika for bilateral talks and development monitoring.
Speaking during the meeting at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe, President Mutharika said he was very grateful for the support the US-Government is rendering to the country.
“The USA Government has helped and contributed to the development of this country. It is helping us in the fight against HIV/Aids, maternal health, as well as relief aid to the people affected by floods in 2014/15 rainy season.
“Due to this situation, the country has been hit with food shortage in some of the districts which were affected by floods and the USA Government has been there to help us solve the problems” said Mutharika.
He further said the US-Government has helped in both fiscal and physical security and keeping peace in the country and Africa as a whole.
In his remarks, senior US Senator James Inhofe from Oklahoma said he was glad to meet the Malawi President face to face and have a talk on how the two countries could work on development issues.
“We came here because we love your President and the people of Malawi and to assure the President that the USA Government is there to assist people of this country,” said Inhofe.
USA Ambassador to Malawi Virginia Palmer said USA is looking forward to see that the support it is giving the country goes a long way in assisting the needy and families affected by HIV/Aids and strength the bilateral relationship which is there.
“The USA Government is committed to work with Malawi Government in several areas such as, education, health, agriculture among others for the beneficial of its people and we are looking at how we can expand the relationship so that a lot of Malawians can benefit,” said Palmer.
She said the senators did not only come to monitor on how the developmental projects are going on, but also to appreciate its bilateral relationship which is there between these two countries.
USA anthu oipisitsa inu. Mmalo moti mupita ku Syrian mukubwera kwa bata kuti
Imhofe must be on some exotic errand. just spending congressional money…he has no business there folks.
Mai Palmer, we the real Malawians appreciate the support American people render us. Please ignore the fairy tales uttered by your fellow American aka Peter Muthalika
Is this man still blaming floods for the starvation which is widespread across the country? Sad man? Does he not know that the food insecurity is being caused largely by poor agricultural policies and his government is doing nothing about it? A Chilima muli kuti?
This country is indeed in the hands of someone who will not own up to his cluelessness. No hope for Malawians with such an absent president and ruling party. Sad chapter for our mother Malawi.
Cant you see He was mocking them by saying US-government has helped in both fiscal and physical security and keeping peace in the country and Africa as a whole. who doesnt know US is responsible for instability in many countries not only in africa but other regions as well. Malawins wakeup, your fellow africans realised way back that these americans always have sinister motives and they are not tolerated to play their games there. the problem is by the time you discover kuti akupusitsani will be too late.
Wake up people! This is politics at international level. The USA delegation came to mend the fence because the allegation that the USA is/was plotting a coup against DPP is not good publicity for the Americans. However this visit does not imply that the Americans are happy with DDP leadership. From most of Ambassador Palmer,s statements, it is quite clear that the Americans would be quite happy with a regime change in Malawi. Is the idea of regime change good for Malawi? The implication of a sudden change of political leadership is that Malawi will suffer again from the negative… Read more »
Nanga Dausi uti chiyani tsopano coz that palmer whom you accused of plotting to boot out DPP is there to support the same government!!
Is this the Ambassador who is facilitating the coup? Please DPP and Peter, be real and start focusing on the real matters. Peter and his DPP people have run out of plans to end hunger and they want to divert the attention on something else.
