Tanzania and Malawi today  officially presented their Joint Letter of Application before the Forum of Former African Heads of State and Government in the spirit effort to find solution to the Lake Nyasa border dispute.

The Joint Letter was submitted on behalf of the United Republic of Tanzania's President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete and the Republic of Malawi's President Joyce Banda to the Chairperson of the Forum, retired President Joaquim Chissano, who is also the former President of the Republic of Mozambique.
Leading the Tanzania delegation, Hon. Bernard K. Membe (MP), Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation said that the Forum is expected to review and evaluate any and all proposed argument papers from both countries and issue a suitable recommendation.

On his part, President Chissano said that he was humbled by the solidarity spirit showed by both countries in finding a lasting solution to the long history border dispute.
The two countries have been in ongoing negotiations for two years over the Lake Nyasa border dispute without any formidable solution.

"We have now decided to appeal to the African Forum of Former Heads of State and Government to mediate the matter and find amicable solution. We are jointly requesting that the mediation team should be conformed of former democratically elected Leaders originating from the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC)," said Hon. Membe.  
Hon. Chiume of Malawi also asserted that both countries have expressly requested that the Forum’s former Leaders that derived from Tanzania and Malawi should therefore be excluded in mediating this border dispute due to their immediate conflict of interest.  Said former Leaders are President Ali Hassan Mwinyi (Tanzania), former President Benjamin W. Mkapa (Tanzania) and former President Bakili Muluzi (Malawi).
For Tanzania, Judge Frederick Werema, Attorney General, H.E. Shamim Nyanduga, Ambassador of the United Republic of Tanzania and members of press from Tanzania were all present during the occasion.  For Malawi, the delegation was led by Hon. Ephraim Chiume, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Anthony Kamanga, Attorney General and other legal service officers from the Malawi Government.
The Forum is expected to work on the matter for a period of four months or more starting January 2013, in an effort to find amicable solution to the Lake Nyasa border dispute.

    Najua michuzi maoni haya h nia inapoanza kuwaita watanzania wavamizi wa viwanja na kuwabomolea nyumba zao ni kosa kubwa.
    Ndio maana na Tanzania nayo sasa inaitwa mvamizi wa ardhi za watu. Watanzania tulikuwa tunanunua viwanja na kujenga bila ya kuhitajika kuwa na hati. Sasa Tanzania nayo ionyeshe hati ya ziwa.
