This is where all the politicians gather solving issues regarding their nation. Located quite secluded and quite a distance from the hustle bustle of the commercial and business activities. Quite a distance from other attractions

Great to visit if you have time, but the access is restricted. We ended up taking picture and leaving immediately. Not a must!

However, you need to book two das ahaead: you cannot just walk in, which is a bit odd and I am sure dissauded a few visitors. Next door is the musealium to Dr Hastings Banda and worth a visit by itself. Try and do both

Bombastic non-African building, no need to visit. Disappointed we went there on a tour. You feel really out of Africa

Enjoy a guided tour, not least to hear about the history, from the original - largely white, of course - Nyasaland Legislative Council to today's multi-party democracy. Large, elegant and modern, it is definitely worth visiting.
