Malawi’s President, Dr. Lazarus Chakwera, accompanied by First Lady Madame Monica Chakwera, arrived in Karonga via Karonga Airport on Monday morning, embarking on a series of official engagements within the district.

Upon their arrival, the President received a warm welcome from various dignitaries, including Minister of Agriculture Sam Kawale, Minister of Water and Sanitation Abida Mia, Minister of Defence Harry Mkandawire, as well as prominent figures from the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) such as Regional Chairperson for the North Kezzie Msukwa, Vice President for the North Harry Mkandawire, and Senior Chief Kalonga, among others.
