    Malawi has asked United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to mediate in its Lake Malawi boundary dispute with Tanzania, a senior government minister has said.

    "The Tanzanians want (the Southern Africa Development Community) SADC to mediate but we have asked the United Nations Secretary General to mediate," said Malawi Foreign Affairs Minister Ephraim Mganda Chiume.

    Chiume, who led a team of Malawian government officials on a tour of the border district of Karonga Thursday where he assured residents of government protection following the simmering tensions, said the border wrangle "will be well handled".

    He said Malawi has not given up hope that an amicable solution would be found.

    To show solidarity with the Tanzanians the Malawi government delegation went as far as Kiyera inside Tanzania where District Commissioner Margareta Esther Malenga also assured the Malawi delegation of a peaceful settlement.

    "We went to Kiyera to demonstrate that there was no cause for panic," he said.

    Meanwhile, Tanzania's High Commissioner to Malawi, Patrick Tsere, said the lake still belongs to Malawi and Tanzania until the border dispute between them is resolved. Tsere noted that the water body's resources are accessed by both Malawians and Tanzanians.

    "In fact, our rough estimates reveal that over 600,000 Tanzanians benefit from resources from Lake Malawi. Therefore, there is no way Malawi and Tanzania will go to war on this matter because Tanzanians love Malawi and likewise, we strongly believe that Malawians also love Tanzania," he said.

    "To this effect we are therefore, still ready for talks with our Malawian counterparts to resolve the matter."

    Wamalawi Wanajuha HISTORIA ya SADC; Nchi zote hizo ZILIPATA misaada au mvuto toka kwa TANZANIA enzi za JK NYERERE; Sasa Ukienda huko MALAWI wanajua nothing will be for the best of their interests...
    Kila Freedom Fighter SOUTH walikuwa wanamchukia Kamuzu Banda...

    FIKIRIA KWANZA... Oh Samahani ni labda wewe ni Umezaliwa Miaka ya 90 na historia yetu Imebadilika kweli..

    I do not see that seriousness in our leaders. Ni dharau au ndio bado wanajipanga?
