John Magufuli

Magufuli not at UNGA.

President Peter Mutharika might have to discuss with himself the row over Lake Malawi that the country has been dragged in by her neighbour Tanzania if he is to still go ahead with his plans to discuss the lake row at the side-lines of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA)  in the US.

Information that Malawi24 has indicates that the Tanzanian leader who has been championed as a serious reformer with the heart to move Tanzania forward will not be attending the UNGA.

According to media reports from Tanzania, John Magufuli has had to cancel his trip to the UNGA over an earthquake disaster that struck the country killing about 19 people and leaving 200 others injured.

“The President will be represented at the General Assembly meeting. He has decided to stay home because of the Kagera earthquake disaster,” said Ms Mindi Kasiga, spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, East African, Regional and International Cooperation.

She told a Tanzanian newspaper, The Citizen, that Magufuli had postponed all foreign trips to deal with the aftermath the disaster that has claimed at least 19 lives and left over 200 others injured.

President Mutharika had highlighted that apart from attending the UNGA, he would also be meeting with the Tanzanian leader over the lake row on the side-lines of the UNGA.

However Tanzania has disclosed that it will disclose the official that will represent Magufuli in Tanzania. It might be that person who will meet with Mutharika.

  3. Indeed cowards die many times before their death,and it’s Crystal clear,Magufuli is slowly seing dark clouds and yet some maturity in Peter’s treading.

  4. 3/4 of the lake z controlled by malawi and Tanganyika knows it but the thing is still Tanzania in kyela and songea use d lake and on international boundary dispute where there is water there is no boundary so they have the right to claim on lifes of there people only if we can start drilling oil and pipes bust how many people will b affected both in two countries so this will need better clarification n both nationals

  5. I think Nyanja inalandidwa kale, Tanzania is patrolling and controlling part of the lake it consider it’s territory!!! So what else? What does Malawi lose?? Who cares? What is pan African?? So many questions…. Malawi @ 50 plus!! Kuti tisaope…..

    • Malawi is land lock country and we can compare with tz and tz have ocean and lakes also dont mixed the story of 1845 but we talk about boarders only issues

  9. All the things in our country the’re gowing wrong’ because wie don’t have good leader president in malawi,wie can see what malawi his dowing this day there killing malibinos do you think that is light thing and Mr president what hi say about that nothing it means hi nows dank

  10. It’s because our government is very week why there was in Dr h kamuzu and muluz? they took advantage on peter coz they know that his not strong enough…..shame on my mother land Malawi

  11. if APM doesn’t fullfil his promise on the Lake issue that he said to us during the manfestal time “Tiona zomuchita” magically coz it was a promise for the whole nation ndiye tikufuna chipangano chioneke chifukwa mwa zina mwa mfundo zomwe ananena asanasankhidwe zinali nkhani zokhudza nyanjayi ndiye tikudikira

  12. Magufuli has failed to attend UNGA because of the death of 19 Tanzanians while APM is at UNGA despite the death of 15 Malawians. What does this indicate about these two leaders??

  13. The other thing worthy knowing is the fact that APM has expertise in settling international boundaries disputes for he has been hired to chair tribunals of such causes internationally. Hopefully he is treading on the case of our lake with utmost brilliance.
