U.S Independence Day Celebrations
The U.S. Government has recognized future Malawian leaders who have benefited from U.S. Government assistance and are positively contributing to the development of the Malawi nation.
Taken from various sectors of society, the future leaders are contributing to the development of education, health, security and agriculture sectors in the country or have achieved notoriety as highly successful Malawian students in the U.S. The future leaders were recognized during this year’s United States independence celebrations which took place on 3rd July in Lilongwe.
Speaking at the celebrations, U.S Ambassador to Malawi Jeanine Jackson said her government will continue supporting the Malawi nation in addressing various challenges. Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Ephraim Chiume thanked the American Government for standing with the people of Malawi even at the time when the country was gripped in bad governance and human rights abuses.
The U.S. commemorates its independence on 4th July every year and this year marks the Americans’ 236th years of freedom.
