Micheal Usi Emerges Malawi Vice President

In a significant reshuffle within the Malawian government, President Lazarus Chakwera has appointed Michael Usi as the new Vice President. This announcement comes in the wake of a devastating airplane crash that claimed the life of Saulos Chilima, the former Vice President, along with nine other individuals. The tragic accident occurred on June 10, as the military aircraft they were on board was en route back to the capital, Lilongwe.

Michael Usi is set to be officially sworn into office on Friday, per a statement released by the government. With a robust background in public service, Usi previously held the positions of Minister of Natural Resources and Climate Change and Minister of Tourism, Culture, and Wildlife. Notably, he was also a prominent political figure alongside Chilima, serving as his running mate in a prior presidential election campaign.
