Information that FaceofMalawi has indicates that Mutharika will be crowned the Malawi President officially at the High court premises in Blantyre after being declared by Mec as victor in the May polls.

Meanwhile, it has not been established if any foreign dignitary will attend the swearing in ceremony of Mutharika who will become the fifth President of the republic, taking over the mantle from Joyce Banda.
