Chilima left Mzuzu Airport through Chartered Plane at around 1:45 and landed at Likoma Airport at around 2pm and was welcomed by some top officials.
Chilima, who is also Malawi’s Vice President will later in the afternoon return to Mzuzu and hold a final campaign rally in the northern region at Mzuzu Upper Stadium.
