Mnangagwa: not coming

The ministry added that new dates for Mnangagwa’s visit will be announced.

The Zimbabwean leader was expected to visit Malawi next week from 28th to 29th April.

His visit would have come days after another two day state visit to Malawi by Tanzanian president John Magufuli who came on Wednesday and left Thursday this week.

During his visit, Magufuli held bilateral talks with Malawi’s Peter Mutharika and opened the Tobacco marketing season at the Lilongwe Auction Floors.

Mutharika is currently at the end of his first year term and is seeking re-election in next month’s presidential elections.
