The SMP was delighted to be welcome the First Deputy Speaker of the Malawi National Assembly, Hon. Madalitso Kazombo, and the Second Deputy Speaker, Hon. Nkungulu Aisha Mambo Adams, to Scotland on the 30th January 2020.
This was a brief visit to Scotland but we were delighted to host a special roundtable meeting for the Deputy Speakers to meet our members, and to help facilitate meetings with the Scottish Parliament and Government.
The meeting provided an opportunity for the Deputy Speakers to introduce themselves to SMP Members and present the Malawi National Assembly’s latest Strategic Plan. It also allowed us to brief the Deputy Speakers on the historic and contemporary bilateral links between Scotland and Malawi, and explore further collaboration.
The Speaker of the Parliament is expected to also visit Scotland in the coming months.
