A military plane carrying Saulos Chilima, Malawi’s vice-president, and nine others has gone missing.

 

Authorities said a search is underway.

 

A statement from President Lazarus Chakwera’s office, said aviation authorities lost contact with the plane when it “went off radar” on Monday.

 

“All efforts to make contact with the aircraft since it went off radar have failed thus far,” the statement reads.

 

The plane carrying the 51-year-old vice-president had left Lilongwe, the capital, but failed to make its scheduled landing at Mzuzu International Airport.
