Following questioning by some Malawians in the lone star state about the process of appointment of An Honorary Consul to Texas, The Non-profit organization of Malawians in the state has released a statement below denying any involvement in the protestation.

To whom it may concern,

Malawians in Texas Organization (MITO) would like to distance ourselves from a letter that was written by a concerned group of Malawians living in Texas to the Ambassador of Malawi in regard to the commissioning of Mr. Jordan Scofield Price, as Malawi’s Honorary Consul in the state of Texas. We noticed in the letter the usage of Malawians in Texas as well as being tagged on various social media sites with the letter. We would like to inform the general public that the concerned Malawians in Texas are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form to Malawians in Texas Organization.

As a registered non-profit organization, with a 501(c) (3) status under the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) code, we do not get involved in any political activities nor decisions made by a foreign government. We are therefore distancing ourselves from the letter and its contents.

We are an organization with a vision to “simply Make A difference” and with a mission to support and promote cultural interface, as well as educational, medical, economic and professional linkages for the mutual benefit of its Members/supporters as well as, communities in Malawi and the United States.

[Ambassador Yakobe Sawerengera responds to Malawians who have raised concerns on the Appointment of An Honorary Consul to Texas]

MITO would like to take this opportunity to thank our supporters and donors to our projects throughout the years and extend gratitude to our partners and stakeholders who have been involved and continue to be involved in our projects aimed at making a difference in Malawi and the United States.

As a 501(c) (3) organization we will continue to do our non-profit work by bringing together like-minded individuals who want to make a difference in the lives of people in Malawi and the United States

Very Respectfully,

Agnes Nkhata-Blackwoo
President of Malawians In Texas Organization (MITO)
