Every 15 January is “John Chilembwe Day” in Malawi.

It is a day when the earliest hero of Malawi’s independence movement is remembered. His portrait is on the 2000 and 500 Kwacha notes.

We stand with the Nigerian Armed Forces as they celebrate Remembrance Day today.

We hope that every soldier and officer who goes to battle is treated with the utmost respect. And they in turn respect the Human Rights Charter.
