Chief sports officer responsible for infrastructure in the ministry of youth development and sports Joseph Kayamba, Wednesday said this after the ministry officials conducted a special tour at the stadium for the government departments representatives to appreciate the new Bingu National stadium in Lilongwe, which has a space to hold capacity of 41, 100 people.

“We organized this function for these officials to appreciate the features of the new stadium and at the same time for them to take note of any shortfall that may be there so that these defects could be recommended to the contractor for improvement.

“We have received several positive suggestions from the government representatives which we may wish to take into account. Some officials have highlighted on the need of re-working on the VVIP stand and improve on its current design. For example, there is need to include a canopy, space and maybe even some stairways that may lead into the field,”aid Kayamba.

He further said as Bingu National stadium is unique in Malawi, the function today has been of great importance as it has encouraged the ministry to move forward.

Some of the government departments that were represented are the department of Public Events, the Office of the President and Cabinet, State House, Ministry of Information, the Malawi Police Service and the Malawi Defense Forces. -Mana

    People are dying of hunger but MW is building stadium?
    No Medicines in the Cattlehouses called Hospitals but you are focused on a Stadium?
    Even the new Hospital which just opened can’t find money to operate..
    No roads in the country…
    THIS COUNTRY AND ITS PEOPLE ARE STUPID…We hope Donors don’t even give them anymore Budgetary support!

    As to the Author, we don’t have Ministry of Youth Development and Sports. Youth is under Labour. Are you in Malawi?

    since I don’t trust government to handle state-of-the-art facility like this I would wish another entity within government takes over management of this facility not ministry of sports. The ministry of sports should just take a laissez-faire approach and give management to MDF.MDF with their military approach to management will ensure that this facility lasts long.

  15. Danwel says:

    Unless this can be managed by a private company it will be an eye sore sooner than later. Government being what it is does not know how to care for the public properties and this we have seen happen to many of such infrastructures

  16. BANDASLINE says:

    This is ill-timed. Can hungry, poor and sick people go and watch football and other matches at the stadium? This is a sign of the loss of direction by the DPP people have been talking about.
