NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 28 – Malawi’s newly elected leaders have been inducted to office during an inauguration ceremony held in the country’s capital Lilongwe.

Chilima, a sitting Vice President and leader of the United Transformation Movement ditched incumbent Peter Mutharika to support Chakwera’s election.

Chakwera who vied on a Malawi Congress Party ticket defeated the incumbent Peter Mutharika after garnering 58.57 per cent of the vote, following a re-run in the presidential vote after Malawi’s constitutional court annulled the incumbent’s win in February citing vote tampering.
