VIDEO: Prof Samson Kambalu and Susan Kambalu speaking in the Scottish Parliament

13 December 2022


We are delighted to share this short interview with Professor Samson and Susan Kambalu, recorded in the Scottish parliament as the Maquette of Antelope was installed earlier this year.

Samson, and his Scottish wife Susan, are longstanding friends of the Scotland Malawi Partnership. Together, they spoke at our 2021 AGM and, at that time, the SMP invited Prof Kambalu to have a version of ‘Antelope’ exhibited in Scotland. Samson’s preference was that this took place at the Scottish Parliament and the SMP was delighted to make this happen.

The SMP joined Samson and Susan at the Scottish Parliament on the 4th August for its installation at the Parliament. We were delighted to be the first to see the statue exhibited in Scotland and, together, meet the Scottish Parliament’s Presiding Officer, Alison Johnstone MSP.

We are hugely grateful to Samson and Susan for the loan of the piece and to the Scottish Parliament (including Liam McAthur MSP) for all their assistance. We are especially grateful to our commercial sponsor for this exhibition, SMP Members, Orbis Expeditions. It would not have been possible to have the work in Scotland without the support of Orbis, who are leaders in Scotland-Malawi responsible travel and long-standing partners and supporters of the Scotland Malawi Partnership.
