“The ties between Malawi and Zambia are immemorial. We do share common values, history, languages and culture, over and above sharing borders. We are one people from many facets.

“We have many Malawians living in Zambia and vice-versa. I therefore look forward to my tete-a-tete with HH to find sustainable solutions for the advancement of our two countries.
