When the President learnt that the motorcycles are made in Malawi and produce zero carbon emissions, he insisted on taking one for a test ride around the State House grounds.

The President thanked the makers of the bikes for taking his message of transitioning Malawi from a mindset of consumption to one of production seriously and contributing to the Malawi 2063 vision of a self-reliant, industrialised, middle-income nation.

He encouraged the company to develop a strategy for scaling up production that can benefit from Government’s business-friendly policies.
