Lilongwe - The US government approved a $350m grant on Friday for Malawi’s dilapidated electricity network that had been delayed because of human rights concerns.

“My government wants to assure the US that we will adhere to principles of good governance, freedom of expression, association as well as economic and academic pursuits,” Malawi President Bingu wa Mutharika said at a signing ceremony.
