The President of Malawi, Chakwera travels to UK for virtual conference due to poor internet connection in Malawi
Lazarus Chakwera is said to have travelled to the United Kingdom (UK) to attend a virtual conference owing to bad internet connection in his country.
It is reported he left his country to attend the Global Education Summit which is hosted by the British prime minister, and Malawi being one of the beneficiaries of the programme needed representation.
The Malawian president in defence of his action said the internet connection in his country is not reliable and that may affect his participation. The president’s reason for embarking on the journey sparked criticism in Malawi and some critics accused him of nepotism.
