Chakwera to attend Transform Africa Summit in Zimbabwe on Wed

Malawi’s Ambassador to Zimba, Mwayiwawo Polepole, told media in Zimbabwe that Chakwera’s visit would also culminate in the holding of bilateral discussions with Zimbabwe President Emerson Mnangagwa on the sidelines of the summit.

“The coming of the President of the Republic of Malawi, His Excellency, Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera to attend this summit, is a great solidarity visit. Apart from participating in the summit, the visit will provide an opportunity for the two Heads of State to have some space between the two for bilateral discussions,” said Polepole.

He stated that the sideline discussions between Chakwera and Mnangagwa will dwell much on Cyclone Freddy, which recently devastated Malawi and the subsequent assistance rendered by Zimbabwe.

Polepole added that the summit will provide a platform for the convergence of ideas to carry the African continent forward.
