    Iwe ukuti nzakoyo buluzi iwe ndye ndani finye ngati iwe. The issue is Dangote is coming here to invest if he get satisfied with Malawi.

    This is a very good start and I hope the country will create an enabling environment for investment; that is improving energy capacity, improve road infrastructure; upgrade the railway line both Nacala and Senna to standard gauge to make transportation of raw materials in and export of finished produce cheaper. Our colleagues in Kenya have even gone to County/Province or our case Regional International Investment Conferences such as the Meru County Investment Conference where investment amounting to 250 billion Kenyan Shillings is expected; that is about 2.5 trillion MK for County Investment. What big strides our friends have made. We need to look around how our neighbours are fairing and not just at ourselves.

    men and women, do not let MCP dream of leading this country. Let this happen only if Chakwera goes back to the pulpit. DPP is the party I will vote for in 2019 because this is the only party that has the development agenda for this country. When this man Nangote comes here, tell hill this country needs part of his dollars invested here in terms of tourism, mining and infrastructure under the leadership of APM and DPP, the southern region party.

    We needed such initiatives way back. In fact we should have been having these forums every five years. By now, Malawi could have been somewhere. This is good and worthy supporting.

  14. Malawiana says:

    What really are we intending to showcase during this forum other than the speeches and power point presentations? I dont think we have bankable projects ready for this ill timed forum. Educate us MITC if there is anything tangible on the table other than seeking personal favours.

    That’s good news. Only development cautious party DPP can initiate, plan and indeed host this forum. Dictators of MCP think Malawians can develop thru ngodya zinai basi.
