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.

It is a nice building in the center of the capital. It has beautiful gardens around a national monument right next door. Worth the visit.

Quite a strange thing, this enormous building in this enormously poor country. Even though this is the people's parliament, making a photo of it is strictly forbidden. But the irony here strikes twice! The parliament is build by China! The Chinese are supporting democracy! Wow.
