Britain’s Prince Harry hosted Malawian president Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika at Buckingham Palace in London where they had a private audience on April 17th.
According to Presidential Press Secretary Mgeme Kalilani, the Prince and the Malawi leader discussed how to further promote wildlife conservation as one way of enriching benefits that Malawi gets from its tourism industry.
Prince Harry is a nature conservationist and President of NGO African Parks. He has been involved with several conservation projects in Malawi, including the relocation of elephants from densely populated national parks to those with fewer animals.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Dr Emmanuel Fabiano said the President’s meeting with the Prince was ‘fruitful’.
Meanwhile, Mutharika has hailed the long standing partnership which Malawi enjoys with the All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) in the United Kingdom Parliament.
APPGs are informal United Kingdom cross-political party groups which work as lobby groups for various national and global interests in areas such as human rights and political governance.
Addressing members of the group, President Mutharika, who was accompanied by the First Lady Gertrude Mutharika, highlighted strides that his government has made to develop Malawi in all sectors.
Lord David Steel was leading the United Kingdom’s APPG at the audience.
