President Prof. Peter Mutharika on Sunday assured Malawians living in United Kingdom (UK) that his government would soon sort out the issue of visa and dual citizenship for Malawians living in diaspora.

He was responding to challenges which the Malawians based in UK presented when they met him at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London.

Among other problems presented, the UK-based Malawians said they face problems when visiting their home country with children as they have to get visas for them because they are considered as UK citizens. They said it was difficult for them to obtain a Malawi Passport while in diaspora, therefore asked the Malawi government to consider the possibility of dual citizenship for foreign-based Malawians, especially those living in UK.
