Lilongwe — Malawi President Prof Peter Mutharika left cheerful faces at Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe on Friday upon departure for the 'US-African Leaders Summit' after he had assured the escorting crowd of not putting up an impressive performance.

"I will be the first to speak on Monday and don't worry, I will not disappoint. I am going to sell Malawi to development partners and I promise to put up an impressive performance," said Mutharika cheerfully, drawing cheers and ululations accompanied by drum beating.

The Malawi leader also disclosed to the crowd that international community was overly impressed with his development strategy and that there is for Malawi as some have already eyeing investment prospects.

Mutharika has left for the Washington DC leaders' gathering along with his wife Madame Gertrude Hendrina Mutharika.

According to a Press Statement released by Malawi's State House, President Mutharika leaves for the summit upon invitation by United States of America President Barrack Obama and he will join other African leaders.

The summit is to be held under the theme Investing in the Nett Generation which according to Mutharika, is timely for Malawi as it is in alignment with his administration's development agenda.
