Malawi’s Minister of Industry and Trade, Joseph Mwanamvekha, told Journalists in Lilongwe on Wednesday that the Nigerian billionaire who has investments in cement, sugar and flour, will be visiting Lilongwe towards the end of June to hold private talks with President Peter Mutharika to discuss avenues for a potential investment.
