President Lazarus Chakwera has appealed to foreign governments and international agencies for support in the investigation of the plane crash that killed Vice-President Saulos Chilima on Monday.

Chakwera made the appeal yesterday when over 20 Heads of Missions and international agencies visited him at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe, according to a statement made available to Nation Online by State House press office.

“As the Malawi Defence Force begins its investigation into the cause of the crash today, I am aware that some of your governments have expertise in this area, and so I ask you to render your support,” he said.

Chakwera also expressed gratitude to foreign governments that quickly supported the search and rescue operations immediately after it was reported that the aircraft carrying the Vice-President and eight other passengers was missing.
