With no apology coming his way, President Michael Sata has decided to reconcile with president Bingu Mutharika of Malawi.
When Sata became president of Zambia about a 100 days ago, he demanded any apology from Mutharika for deporting him from that country in 2007.
Sata was also declared an unwanted element and prohibited immigrant to Malawi.
The Malawian government withdrew the status of unwanted element and prohibited immigrant but refused to apologise saying what was done was done to Sata as an individual and was not president of Zambia.
Sata even refused to attend a regional summit in Malawi demanding an apology first.
But Friday 30th December 2011, Sata told visiting former president of Malawi Bakili Muluzi that he is willing to reconcile with Mutharika for the sake of the people of the two countries.
He said he has written a reconciliatory letter to Mutharika and will give it to Muluzi to deliver it.
‘As far as I am concerned, let by-gones be by-gones, so we shall see you in Malawi soon’, Sata said at State House after a closed door meeting with Muluzi.
