LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Hot headed Foreign Affairs Minister Eisenhower Mkaka chartered a Malawian Airlines plane to Somaliland leaving hundreds of customers stranded after the airline canceled flights.
We can reveal that Mkaka who is on an ‘official visit’ to Somaliland demanded that government charters the plane for him and a few officers from Foreign Affairs ministry.
“I am almost always outside the country representing Malawians on foreign policy. I need a plane dedicated to this great task. Find a way to make it happen,” ordered Mkaka.
Then Malawian Airlines canceled all their flights and gave the only plane they have to Mkaka to travel to Somaliland.
Malawia Airlines does not fly to Somaliland which has nothing that will significantly benefit Malawi.
This is the first time in the history of the country where a mere cabinet minister would charter a plane leaving commercial passengers stranded.
Pictures from Somaliland shows Mkaka disembarking from a Malawian Airlines plane at Hargeisa International Airport in Somaliland Saturday afternoon.
Mkaka is said to be one of the powerful cabinet ministers who has publicly boasted that he cannot be ‘touched’ by President Lazarus Chakwera as he is the one who controls the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) which Chakwera leads but do not have grassroots support.
