The donor community in the country on Wednesday met in Lilongwe to discuss the current political tensions in the country, a week after Britain said that this could hinder food aid to over 4 million people facing hunger in the country.
British deputy high commissioner Chris Wraight confirmed the meeting on Wednesday but declined to disclose the details of the agreements.
“We met it’s true and discussed the current political situation but I can’t comment because we would be releasing a statement in due course,” he said.
Donors’ concerns come fast on the heels of a complaint by the British government two weeks ago that the current political landscape could hinder food aid to millions of Malawians facing a food shortage.
The Malawi Council of Churches also has condemned moves to impeach Mutharika while the Malawi Law Society has called for a referendum on constitutional amendment, especially on the National Governing Council bill which seeks to stop the Vice President from taking over the Presidency should a vacancy arise in the office of the President.
