Mutharika

Malawi's President Bingu wa Mutharika gives an interview with AFP on July 18, 2011 in Lilongwe. Malawi will not apologize for expelling Britain's top diplomat, Mutharika said, insisting the former colonial power's aid suspension would not create a budget gap. 'It's certainly not a possibility. What do we apologize for? Here is an envoy who insulted our country,' Mutharika told AFP. Britain last week suspended budgetary aid over Malawi's failure to address concerns over economic management and governance in the latest worsening of ties since a diplomatic spat in April.
