Lake Malawi row blamed on Joyce Banda

George Chaponda: JB made mistakes.

The Malawi government says it will resolve the lake wrangle with Tanzania but has blamed the Joyce Banda administration for failing to resolve the matter quickly.

Minister of foreign affairs and international cooperation George Chaponda said the lake wrangle could have been resolved long time ago but the previous administration did not use the right procedures in allowing a forum led by former Mozambican President Joaquim Chissano to mediate on the issue.

“We will resolve the Lake Malawi wrangle soon and the heads of state who are handling the matter will meet in May,” said Chaponda.

He added that he went to Mozambique where he met Joaquim Chissano and they will resolve the matter in May.

Chaponda assured Malawians that the lake belongs to Malawi no matter what.

Said Chaponda: “If the matter favors Tanzania we have no choice but to go to the International Court of Justice because the lake belongs to Malawi.”

The dispute between Malawi and Tanzania started way back at independence and the issue resurfaced when it was discovered that the lake has oil under it.

Tanzania has been claiming part of Lake Malawi is theirs while Malawi says the whole Lake Malawi belongs to her.

  10. This is full of shit,why always you point fingers on JB? Let me tell you one thing,Malawi is full of Ignorance,the major source to this problem is late Hastings Kamuzu Banda,Malawi’s border was up to Iringa but because we had a leader who was not a Malawian that’s why we are fighting against the lake with Tanzania,why not blaming Kamuzu Banda govt,Bakili Muluzi govt and Bingu govt,by the time you were doing campaign you told us that you will do every thing,now you are in the office why do u point fingers on past govt? That’s we call Education without wisdom,that’s why Malawi doesn’t have real History because you respect John Chilembwe rather than respecting Orton Chirwa who died for the freedom of this country.

  11. kodi makape inu everything wrong its jb who told a rally that if he was thepresident he would have applied war on tz its u pitala now uare coming up with changed statement wy? mr mathanyula

  12. but why we are so selfish? those people who live in the shores of this lake depend on it for their survival, how can u stop them just bcos white man said ts for nyasaland? these nyakusas are cousins of ngondes n their roots are the same, it was white people who brought this, hatred against each other. how wll we defeat poverty if we hated by our neighbors? we are a landlockd nation n we need tanganyika for us to use their ports. if mozambique ve a share wy nt tanzania, ask them to give us more land n they take part of that water, thats cool. in that case there wll be no loser, all wll be happy. peace
