On the other hand, the Malawi President cautioned and accused the United Nations for being undemocratic for matters of global importance.

“There are other countries that are more democratic in Africa than those in Europe and other parts of the world. We therefore request a fairness gesture when treating us.”
Mutharika spent some time in his speech to pronounce and exclaim development prospects of Malawi and Africa atlarge.
