German Ambassador Jurgen Borsch has challenged Malawians to take the route of constructive and peaceful dialogue if the country is to achieve success.
The ambassador has also urged every Malawian to embrace the spirit of unity and respect for other people’s democratic rights.
Borsch was speaking in Lilongwe on Thursday evening during celebrations of German Unity Day.
He described unity as a permanent task and the only key to success for any nation.
“Unity for any country is extremely valuable and it has to be jealously guarded. Unity is something that can be considered as a permanent task for everyone to work on and to share with everyone in the same country,” he said.
The ambassador also pledged to continue supporting the government of Malawi in implementing its policies and strategies for the benefit of Malawians as well as supporting private sector development.
In an interview, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Francis Kasaila, who was the guest of honour at the event, observed that Malawians need to remain united and learn to deal with each other’s differences.
“Whatever challenges or differences we may have, we have to find a better way of dealing with them other than thinking that by dividing ourselves, we will solve our problems.”
