Speaking during an audience with Commonwealth Development Corporation (CDC) leaders in Lilongwe, Mutharika said foreign investors can come in to bail out the country on the challenges being faced.
“We are facing challenges in the energy sector and this is the area that we would invite you,” said Mutharika.
