We want Malawians in the diaspora to come back home - Mutharika

13 July 2016, 11:21

Lilongwe - Malawian President Peter Mutharika has reportedly ordered Justice Minister Samuel Tembenu to draft dual citizenship legislation to allow Malawians who are stuck outside the country to return home and invest. 

According to Nyasa TimesMutharika said that the ministry of justice was currently amending the legislation that would allow Malawians to hold dual citizenship, fulfilling a promise made that he would address the matter.

"We are currently drafting the legislation. Very soon we will have the legislation. This will be possible because we want Malawians in diaspora to come to Malawi," he was quoted as saying.

This came as Mutharika's administration was looking at ways to save a crumbling economy.

Mutharika's government has in recent months come under fire over its failure to solve the southern African country's economic woes.

In April, religious groupings under the country’s Public Affairs Committee (PAC) called for Mutharika’s resignation.

The PAC demanded that the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) "swallow its pride" and accept the fact that Malawi was drowning in its own problems.
