Lilongwe

Lilongwe –Malawi

In 1975, President Hastings Kamuzu Banda named Lilongwe as the new Capital City of Malawi  11 years after it gained independence in 1964. Lilongwe existed as one of the oldest settlements in Malawi. The British colonial government made it their administrative centre, and it was officially recognised as a town in 1947. The last government offices were formally moved to Lilongwe in 2005 which marked the end of the move from Zomba.
