The elections in Malawi are of “historic significance for Africa and the world,” says Shaka. The new President Lazarus Chakwera was sworn in Sunday in the capital Lilongwe, after he defeated two candidates, including former President Peter Mutharika, in the tightly contested presidential election rerun held last week.
