Lazarus Chakwera, the president of Malawi, is said to have travelled to the United Kingdom (UK) to attend a virtual conference owing to bad internet connection in his country.


Chakwera, 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.

 

Chakwera listed 10 delegates who accompanied him on the journey, including his wife and daughter, but he reportedly dropped the minister for foreign affairs.


According to him, his daughter was included in the delegation to take care of his wife who is not feeling well and to give physical support.

 

The president’s reason for embarking on the journey sparked criticism in Malawi and some critics accused him of nepotism.
