The Murchison Widefield Array has now completed its construction phase (late 2012), its science commissioning phase (first half 2013) and has entered its full science operations phase since mid-2013. I will review the current status of the MWA instrumentation and the first scientific results from this exciting new facility for low frequency astronomy in the Southern Hemisphere. I will also discuss the MWA role in the SKA pre-construction program.
