Mutharika deported the envoy over a leaked cable in which Cochrane Dyet described Mutharikaâ€™s administration as being dictatorial and not having the welfare of Malawians at heart. In a tit for tat game, Britain also deported Malawiâ€™s envoy in London Flossy Gomile Chidyaonga as well as suspending budgetary support to the country.
But head of the Department for International Development in the country Sara Sanyahumbi assured the nation during World Food Programâ€™s targeted food distribution launch in Ntcheu district that her country is committed to supporting Malawi. Sanyahumbi said Britain is among the contributors in the targeted food aid and that they are looking for different ways of supporting people in the country.
Britain has contributed cash amounting to over 76 million kwacha for logistical expenses in the ongoing food distribution program.
