Date:

The following is a statement by Johnnie Carson, Assistant Secretary for African Affairs, United States Department of State.

On April 5, President of the Republic of Malawi, Dr. Bingu wa Mutharika, reportedly passed away after a sudden illness. The United States extends its condolences to First Lady Callista Mutharika and the President’s four children.

Our thoughts are with the people of Malawi during this time of sorrow.As Malawians mourn the loss of their President, the United States remains committed to maintaining our strong relationship and partnership with the people of Malawi.

Malawi’s constitution lays out a clear path for succession and we expect it to be observed. We are concerned about the delay in the transfer of power. We trust that the Vice-President who is next in line will be sworn in shortly.
