On his second day in neighboring Mozambique, Malawi President Lazarus Chakwera paid tribute to fallen heroes and freedom fighters at the Heroes Acre Monument in Maputo.
According to Chakwera, the visit evoked familiar memories because Malawi and Mozambique share notable similarities in the fight for independence saying the two countries unite in honoring our heroes who led the political struggle that set the continent free from colonialism.
After that, the Malawi Leader held one on one deliberations with President Filipe Jacinto Nyusi on what he called a range of issues of mutual interest that drive socio-economic development of people in the two countries.
“Discussions centered around how the two countries should fortify mutual cooperation in areas of trade, security, transport, energy and diplomacy. We are assured of immediate actions on all issues agreed because both countries were represented by great delegations,” said Chakwera, adding “Both sides have agreed to continue collaborating to fully harness opportunities and address existing bottlenecks for the betterment of our people.”
The Malawi team accompanying the president in today’s deliberations included Minister of Trade Mark Katsonga – Phiri, Minister of Energy Ibrahim Matola, Minister of Foreign Affairs Nancy Tembo, as well as Deputy Minister of Defence Harry Mkandawire and Deputy Minister of Transport Nancy Chaola – Mdooko.
