Malawi reverses expulsion of British diplomat
Blantyre: Malawi has withdrawn its expulsion of Britain`s envoy, asked to leave in April after he was quoted expressing concern about the Malawian President`s intolerance of criticism and about deteriorating human rights here.
Britain expelled Malawi`s envoy and suspended aid in response to the Malawi order that President Bingu wa Mutharika`s administration described on Friday as "unfortunate”. Malawi says the British envoy is free to return.
Also on Friday, Malawi revoked a four-year-old deportation order against the president of neighbouring Zambia. Zambia`s Michael Sata, elected President last month, had been an opposition leader when he tried to visit a Malawian opposition leader in 2007. Sata refused to attend a regional summit this week in Malawi because of the incident.
