 Malawi’s Dr Lazarus Chakwera was sworn in for a five-year term on Sunday as the Country’s 6th President. He has been leader of the Malawi Congress Party since 2013 and was previously Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly following highly controversial elections held on 21 May 2019 which were overturned by the Constitutional Court. He was President of the Malawi Assemblies of God from 1989 to 14 May 2013.
