Good Friends, I wish to congratulate our beloved President His Excellency Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika and my successor, our new Vice President Saulos Klaus Chilima.
I would like to sincerely thank our former President Dr. Joyce Banda, for giving me the opportunity to serve Malawians as their Vice President. Let me also thank all Malawians for your support. I am humbled and will always cherish and be proud of you, fellow countrymen.
I ask that you should offer the same support to our new Vice President as we endeavour to build our nation.
As for my followers in Mzimba, thanks for your continued trust in my leadership.
I leave you with this quote from the Great Mohandas Karamchand Ghandi "Its the choice and not the fruit of the choice that's important. We have to strive to make the right choices and lead ourselves into the right direction". I hope I have tried to do that.
