151

A plane carrying United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon made an emergency landing at Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe on Sunday night.

According to reports, the plane which was on its way to South Africa crash landed after it run out of fuel, forcing the UN chief to spend close to an hour in the country.

Ban Ki Moon

Ban Ki Moon made an ‘unwanted’ visit to Malawi.

He was however not alone during that time as President Peter Mutharika ordered Minister of Agriculture George Chaponda and several police officers to go to the airport and keep Ki Moon company.

Minister of Information Patricia Kaliati said Chaponda and Ki Moon did not discuss anything official.

“President Mutharika sent the Agriculture minister just for protocol, to be with him when his plane was being refuelled, they did not hold diplomatic discussions,” said Kaliati.

Ki Moon is famous in Malawi for negotiating for the release of two gay men who had been jailed for 14 years in 2011.

  1. Amalawi musamatione kupusa. Ndipo palibe chinsinsi padziko lapansi. Ngati ili emergency landing bwanji Press tv Dw Aljazira sadalengeze zifukwa zake.

  2. OMG. The plane crashed landed, survived the crash landing, it’s crew came back to their senses, trouble-shooted why the plane lost thrust, discovered that it lost fuel, eventually it had to be refuelled!!

    A story full of paradoxy; not even a deaf person would believe it. The reporter is not well versed in aviation vocabulary. Nonetheless, I am not a pro- DPP supporter but it’s obvious that APM had nothing to do with Moon’s emergency landing!

  3. It’s good to die out b’se the man is the idiot of South Sudanese resources and fuck his American could have make good funeral for him,

  4. Hello I’m Samuel Okizou by name, I’m giving a testimony about Dr.Sule the great Herbalist, he has the cure to all manner of diseases, he cured my HIV disease, though I went through different website I saw different testimonies about different herbalists, I was like: “Many people have the HIV cure why are people still suffering from it?” I thought of it, then I contact Dr.Sule via email, I didn’t believe him that much, I just wanted to give him a try, he replied my mail and Needed some Information about me, then I sent them to him, he prepared the CURE and sent it to me via UPS courier service, they told me that it will take 3-4 days before I’ll get the parcel, 3 days later I received the package and I started taking the medicine as prescribed by him, after 7 days of taking the medicine I went for check-up, I was tested HIV NEGATIVE… IF YOU ARE SERIOUS YOU WILL BE CURED!!! contact Dr Sule on whats-app +2348162447651

  7. Does stopping to refuel constitute an emergency? You are driving to Karonga from Blantyre and stop over in Lilongwe to top up on fuel. Will that constirute an emergency or just a regular refueling stop? Many aeroplanes stop over to refuel in Malawi. Why isnit an issue with Ban Ki Moon’s aeroplane? Ikanagwera kwinakwake & the secretary general was injured that would have constituted an emergency

    • Ngati kunvetsa zinthu kumakuvutani tsatirani zomwe akuuzanizo. My brain still works and refuelling in Malawi did not constitute an emergency to me

    • Mediocrity dats our syndrome in malawi what a poor headline a five year got more sense then this dude who got paid to write that garbish headline

    • I also think it was an emergency landing. The destination of the flight was South Africa but for the shortage of fuel it would not have landed in Malawi. Obviously that was an emergency situation. Moreover flying in the air is not analogous to travelling with a car on land where you can decide to stop anywhere at any time.

    • They knew the fuel they carried would not reach South Africa and they planned to refuel somewhere in central Africa. Since Malawi was on the direct route as well as secure they chose to refuel here. Since Mr Moon is such a high profile person it was necessary for the host nation to at least say hello or even offer him free fuel. By the way why are we making an issue out of a refuelling stop? Do you people know how many aeroplanes make refueling stops in Malawi? Malawian airlines boeing 737 stops at chileka to refuel everyday as it flies from South Africa to KIA. Does that constitute an emergency? If you want to make yourselves heros about something try dealing with the hunger issue without the help of external partners or better still dealing with albino killings.

  8. Who alerted peter that moon is at the airport? Why he bothered himself sending ministers to keep moon accompany when its an emergency visit?

    • A frog doesn’t jump in a broad-daylight for nothing. Our old president has become so arrogant and stubborn,this might be one of the reasons of Moon’s night visit,I suspect.When an old dog is about to die,it becomes very stubborn.This fool called president is heading for disaster

    • You are the one who don’t know the meaning of emergency,, oky munjila ina bwanji galimoto zimathela mafuta malo oti sungapeze malo ogulisila mafuta?? Emergency ilibe kuti ungaasankhe malo kapena nthawi yochitikila chimodzimozi ngozi sumaziwa kuti ukuchitikila nthawi yanji malo anji.

  12. It’s not an emergency landing; these people know wat they are doing; we are going to hear something peculiar just in a short while; i really bliv that he came with a purpose; we are being blindfolded; those are lies of politicians-deadly games!
