But impeccable source from the office of the Vice President indicate that Chilima has vowed never to associate himself with Mutharika, arguing the president has shown that he is incompetent to the core.
“The VP could attend the function but the presence of the state president was a stumbling block to him. You know the president has been insulting the vice president in his quest to hide his incompetence and the VP seems to furious with the behavior of the president,” said the source.
The event was officially opened by HE President Mutharika, and it was attended by all relevant government ministers and stakeholders.
Over 500 investors from 29 countries across the globe meet in Lilongwe Monday to discuss possible investment deals during the third Malawi Investment Forum (MIF).
