His Excellency the President of the Republic of Malawi, Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera, has this morning welcomed Dr. Tanaka Akihiko, President of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and his delegation, to bilateral talks at Sanjika Palace in Blantyre.

In his remarks President Chakwera appreciated Japan's warm friendship and its substantial contribution to Malawi, including the deployment of numerous volunteers, and interventions in the Agriculture, energy, and transport sectors.

He attributed positive developments in Lilongwe to Japanese grants and support, stating, "Lilongwe is wearing a new face because of some of your grants and support."

This marks the first visit to Malawi by the JIKA President, highlighting the deepening ties between the two nations.

Honourable Nancy Tembo, M.P, Minister of Foreign Affairs, expressed gratitude, stating, "We have a true partner in Japan." She highlighted the significance of Japan's assistance, particularly in the energy sector, and acknowledged the long-standing collaboration that has spanned over half a century of diplomatic relations.

During the talks, President Akihiko conveyed his pleasure at visiting Malawi, emphasizing the importance of understanding the country.

He thanked the government and people of Malawi for their support, especially in accommodating an increasing number of Japanese volunteers over the past two years.

The Japanese President extended his gratitude to President Chakwera for attending the ceremony marking the completion of the Nacala port.

He also emphasised Japan’s commitment to contributing to Malawis resilience to climate change effects adding that the Japanese are no stranger to climatic shocks.

In this regard Akihiko expressed a keen interest in hearing from the Malawi government on what way Japan can assist in this area.

The talks covered critical infrastructure developments, including the Electricity Substations at Old Town and Kanengo, integral to Malawi's developmental agenda.

In addition the discussion also touched on potential for capacity building in the area of rice production with the Malawi delegation expressing a keen interest in learning from Japan who has mastered the art.

Both leaders expressed optimism about the continued partnership and its role in fostering progress and growth in the region.

His Excellency is in the Southern Region of the country undertaking a number of activities including the Inauguration of the International Blantyre Cancer Centre later this afternoon.

REPUBLIC OF MALAWI DIPLOMAT TO REPUBLIC ZIMBABWE SPEAKS ON THE MISSION AND CORDIAL INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS

Stepping into the New Year:
Power Global Media on 31st December 2023, Conducted an Interview with Malawian High Commissioner to Zimbabwe, His Excellency, Dr. Mwayiwawo Polepole whom reflected on 2023 while focusing on 2024 Diplomatic Relations

1. Chilimunthaka: Can you introduce yourself to the Malawian audience?

H.E. Dr. Mwayiwawo Polepole: I am Mwayiwawo McLloyd Polepole a son born from
Traditional Authority Mkukula in Dowa District. I did my primary school at Chankhungu LEA, then my secondary school at Nkotakota Secondary School and my first degree at Chancellor College in Zomba. After college education, I started my profession at Dzenza Secondary School in the capital city of Lilongwe and then practiced my profession at different institutions, donor agencies before proceeding into the humanitarian industry as a global education advisor.

2. Chilimunthaka: How long have you been representing Malawi's interests in Zimbabwe?

H.E. Dr. Mwayiwawo Polepole: Before I answer your question, let me take this opportunity to thank the appointing authority, Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera, the President of the Republic of Malawi for appointing me to this honorable position in representing the President, the Government, and the people of Malawi here in Harare, Zimbabwe. It is indeed a great honor. I reported in Harare on November 28, 2021, so this makes it two years now.

3. Chilimunthaka: As we conclude 2023, what notable achievements can Malawians attribute to the work of Malawi's Embassy in Zimbabwe?

H.E. Dr. Mwayiwawo Polepole: Thank you for the question. Diplomatic work is an exciting field of work. Someone said that diplomacy is like jumping into troubled waters without causing a splash. This means some of the work being done cannot be quantified nor shared but the fruits are there. However, what I can share with Malawians and those in diaspora is that the mission in Zimbabwe has represented you very well with pride and honor. During these past years we have seen some achievements in international trade. As we speak, trade between Malawi and Zimbabwe is in favor of Malawi. Malawian products are getting on very high demand in Zimbabwe. I meet several people who tell me that they do not eat any other rice other than Malawian rice. There are huge opportunities for both Zimbabweans and Malawians to improve on trade relations for mutual benefits. The mission continues getting inquiries on how Zimbabweans would like to trade with Malawi on various commodities and industries. We need to keenly open more doors and create innovative partnerships for advancement of trade between the two countries. There is a large Malawian Diaspora population in Zimbabwe. In fact, Chichewa is in the Constitution of Zimbabwe as a language. As I conclude, I need to inform Malawians that there is so much we can do between the two Nations. We need patience, persistence, and perspiration because that is an unbeatable combination for success, perhaps even more than skills, talent, and experience. Because it ain't over till it's over. What Malawians need to know and take advantage of is that both leaders; Dr. Chakwera, the President of Malawi and Dr. Mnangagwa, the President of Zimbabwe are serious about the missions between Lilongwe and Harare and therefore contemplating implementing sustainable economic diplomacy. There is so much I can share, but for today allow me to halt here.

4. Chilimunthaka: Considering the impact of Cyclone Freddy on Malawi in 2023 and the swift assistance from the Government of Zimbabwe, including President Mnangagwa's visit, what factors have strengthened the bilateral relationship between the two countries?

H.E. Dr. Mwayiwawo Polepole: Thanks for the question. The bilateral relations between Malawi and Zimbabwe are beyond our understanding. It is more than a bilateral relation but rather a brotherly bond. It is a web difficult to comprehend. This is why it makes it difficult to point out that the relationship between the two nations is based on diplomacy as I think, diplomacy comes in because the two countries are sovereign states. On that basis, we can talk about diplomatic relations otherwise Zimbabweans and Malawians are related by blood. I was amazed to see solemn faces when disaster hit Malawi as relatives of Zimbabweans were affected. Just imagine, President Mnangagwa addressing Malawians at a rally at the Kamuzu International Airport in Chichewa. That was not practiced. Of course, after President Chakwera declared a State of Disaster in the districts that were affected by Cyclone Freddy, I established a Disaster Emergency committee at the embassy that was headed by the Deputy Ambassador, Major General Elias Mpaso. The mission shared the communication from Malawi with different state and non-state actors. Upon hearing the news regarding the devastation, Dr. Emersion Dambudzo Mnangagwa, the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe invited business personnel and government officials to the State House and raised resources in support of those affected by Cyclone Freddy in Malawi. The first consignment that left Zimbabwe was the 300 tons of mealie meal (ufa). There were ten (10) thirty tons trucks through ZIMAID that left Zimbabwe to Blantyre. ZIMAID worked very well with DoDMA and later other support came through. Some relief materials were delivered at the chancery and the mission with support from DoDMA and well-wishers dispatched some thirty-tons trucks with assorted items to Malawi. As we speak this process is still going on. You may wish to know that it takes at least quiet a moment to resettle people affected by such damages caused by Cyclone Freddy. The time President Mnangangwa visited Malawi for him to assess and appreciate the damages caused, he delivered ninety (90) tons of cement and prefabs besides, other assorted materials to his brother President Dr. Chakwera as an assistance and major help in provisions of building shelters for the affected people.

5. Chilimunthaka: We've learned about your office's contribution of medical equipment to Zimbabwe through the Ministry of Health. Could you elaborate on the significance of this initiative for both nations?

H.E. Dr. Mwayiwawo Polepole: You are right Chilimunthaka, when disaster hit one of the
donors whom we have been dialoguing with until now, understand that support to help affected people as in the case of such disaster takes long. The donors dispatched an assessment team to Malawi and among many findings, they opted to support medicines and psychosocial components. They trained about 200 religious leaders with psychosocial skills and manuals.
Additionally, they found out that QECH was overwhelmed, and they offered relief doctors and medications to assist in the relief efforts. After some time, the donor provided medications and medical personnel at the time of delivery. The hospital director indicated that some of the medicines provided were out of stock and having the donations at that time was of great assistance and the hospital was grateful for all the efforts and initiative taken. DoDMA was represented by Fedson Chikuse whom witnessed the events and distribution ceremony. The delivery was made possible because Malawian Airlines whom the embassy approached, provided flight services free of charge to the embassy at Malawian Airlines costs from Harare to Blantyre. As a mission, we are grateful to Malawian Airlines for the gesture they have showed and done. The donor is currently working with Ministry of Health, DoDMA and QECH to facilitate a second consignment of medicines. The list of these needed medicines was compiled by QECH and approved by Ministry of Health while Ministry of Foreign Affairs is facilitating the process. This donation is very significant to our health sector as it provides the much-needed medical supplies of which would have required a significant time and resources from Government to supply the much-needed humanitarian reliefs, items and resources.

6. Chilimunthaka: Reflecting on the past year, what specific initiatives has the embassy undertaken to serve the interests of Malawi?

H.E. Dr. Mwayiwawo Polepole: As the year winds up, we are very grateful that we have managed to serve Malawians in many various ways and in the new year we will be continuing doing that while improving in areas that require improvements. This time of the year as you might be aware, there will be a lot of Malawians traveling through Zimbabwe, either from South Africa or Botswana and vice versa. It’s always at this time when our Consular services are at the pick. I assure all Malawians who may need our services that we are ready and set to help in the best way we can. We only ask for those that will be traveling to make sure that they have valid travel documents and make sure they follow good health and hygiene practices as there are still some pockets of Zimbabwe affected by Cholera. During this calendar year, we had so many activities that we accomplished in which they are so numerous to mention. Let me cite a few of them. For instance, the mission continued providing support to Lindela prisoners from RSA as they transit through Zimbabwe. We celebrated the birthday of Prophet Magaya and a lot of Malawians were here to attend the events. The Lilongwe team was led by Prophet Gongwe and it was a great reunion and a very memorable time. The climax of the year was when the mission facilitated the visit of President Dr. ED Mnangagwa to Malawi end of May following the visit of the President, Dr. L.M. Chakwera to Zimbabwe when he attended a Transform Africa Summit. We also hosted several Malawi Ministers who were here in Harare for different assignments. Some of such notable events are when Dr. M. Ussi, the Minister of Natural Resources visited Victoria Falls at the invitation of the mission to attend a conference. Then Dr. Ken Zikhale Ng’oma who represented President Chakwera at the inauguration of President Mnanagwa after winning the elections that gave Dr. Mnanangwa a Second term in the Office of the President of Zimbabwe.

7. Chilimunthaka: What are the upcoming plans and priorities for the Malawi High Commission in Zimbabwe in 2024?

H.E. Dr. Mwayiwawo Polepole: As a mission, we are looking forward to 2024 as a year to consolidate the gains we have so far achieved and engage into a higher gear especially in the areas of trade. The mission will continue engaging with MDAs in Zimbabwe that have equal interests with Malawi. We are also looking forward to a midterm review of a JPCC in which we will be reviewing achievements or any deficits that may be assessed to find ways in making sure that the bilateral relations between Malawi and Zimbabwe continue to flourish. More importantly, we want to make sure that the benefits of economic diplomacy reach out to areas where needs be. We are also looking forward to advance the initiatives we have done in reaching out to many locations where there are more Malawians to sensitize them about the dual citizenship law that Malawi has ratified. Indeed, we hope we will strive to make sure that Malawi products increase on the market in Zimbabwe and promote bilateral visits between the two sovereign states. We would also like to see many other players of the economy visiting us in Harare such as journalists of your caliber to help profiling the work we are doing here in Harare and across Zimbabwe
