Malawian President expected in Zambia for an official visit

Headlines Malawian President expected in Zambia for an official visit

President of Malawi, Lazarus Chakwera is scheduled to undertake an official visit to Zambia, tomorrow, Tuesday, 22nd September, 2020.

Dr Chakwera will be accompanied by First Lady, Monica Chakwera.

The visit will be the Malawian leader’s first official engagement outside his country, since his election as Head of State in June 2020.

According to a statement released to ZANIS in Lusaka by Minister of Foreign Affairs Joseph Malanji, the Malawian leader will be in Zambia to discuss areas of mutual interest to enhance bilateral relations between the two countries.

“Zambia and Malawi share strong historical bilateral ties and a common border. Our two countries continue to actively cooperate in social, political, and economic areas, within the framework of the Zambia/Malawi Joint Permanent Commission on Defence and Security and the Joint Permanent Commission of Cooperation, for the betterment of our peoples,” said Mr Malanji.

The Minister said Zambia and Malawi have also continued to collaborate at regional, continental and international levels through the United Nations, the Commonwealth, the African Union, the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA).

He disclosed that during the visit, Dr Chakwera will hold bilateral talks with President Edgar Lungu at State House and also lay wreaths at the Presidential Burial Site at Embassy Park in Lusaka.

He said the Malawian Head of State is expected to depart for his country immediately after his engagements.


  1. Whilst the diasporan upnd supporters were busy saying utunensu and saying that the president of Malawi would never invite our president. Surprisingly now he’s coming to see not HH, but his excellency EC Lungu. This is because this country is being ruled by ECL and will continue to be ruled by him in 2021

  2. Let’s hope he is not coming to learn to steal from poor people of Malawi.

    The mothers and grandmasters of thieving are in PF government. These are men steal without shame and not scared of anything.

    He must be very cautious when he meets Edgar Lungu.

    Because there is nothing to learn from this PF government.

    PF must go!

  3. Just exchanging corona virus.
    I feel sorry for Chakwera, nobody knows that he president because he came during pandemic.

  4. Take him to Misisi ,Kamwala and Chibolya instead of Embassy Park + Plot One to see the poverty that Lungu has engineered.Then on to Central Bank to see the depressing economic indicators.

  5. This was arranged by Bokani Soko and Grandview as they had bank rolled the MCP election campaign
    That is why the first tender for supplying ambulances was given to Sokos company Grandview …

  6. Let him speak to Lungu about the over priced tenders which have been imported to his country by thugs linked to Chishane Shane .

  7. Ati take them to Misis, Chibolya? Should ECL be taken to Ndilande or Dedza in Malawi? Zambia is far much better than Malawi this time around

  8. Let’s start thinking positively Malawians and Zambian are one people no doubt about it. It we think Zambia is much better than Malawi then we are wrong..

    If Zambian political land scape if full corrupt people or they win with small margin it’s time to change, for the sake of justice.. if the next election can be conducted like the way Malawian election was conducted there shall be no rigging straight.

    The most important thing is justice…
