MANGOCHI-(MaraviPost)-Malawi President Lazarus Chakwera and former Malawi leader Peter Mutharika met on Sunday, December 27, 2020 in Mangochi, the first meeting between the two leaders since the June 23 presidential elections.

This a rare and commendable move for the two to meet.

The two together with former First Lady Gertrude Mutharika and First Lady Monica Chakwera met at Mutharika’s house in Mangochi.

“Today, the President of Malawi, His Excellency Dr Lazarus Chakwera, made a courtesy call on me at my Villa Mutharika in Mangochi. We had a very good chat. God bless Malawi,” Mutharika posted on Facebook.

The State House Facebook Page also confirmed: “On this final Sunday of the year 2020, it has pleased the President of the republic of Malawi, His Excellency the State President, Dr Lazarus Chakwera and The First Lady of Malawi, Her Excellency, Madame Monica Chakwera, to pay a courtesy call to former State President, Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika, and former First Lady, Madame Gertrude Mutharika, at their home in Mangochi.”

Chakwera and Mutharika were the main contenders in the 2020 Fresh Presidential Elections in which Chakwera emerged winner.

Mutharika has always maintained that the elections were rigged against him and that the holding of the presidential elections after the nullification of the 2019 elections – which Mutharika won – was part of a plot to remove him from government.

The meeting between Chakwera and Mutharika has shown that the two leaders are ready to move on.

It has also excited Malawians who believe that that the two leaders are willing to reconcile.
