The unveiling of the roundabouts is part of First Lady’s commitment to beautify Lilongwe and Malawi at large.

The reconstructions of the two roundabouts, is a brainchild of Beautify Malawi Trust (BEAM), whose vision lies in transforming Malawi into a beautiful country.

Presiding over the ceremony in Lilongwe, the First Lady said the unveiling of the ceremony is a milestone in the works of BEAM as the completion of the work will bring out the infrastructure beauty of roads in Malawi.

“The beauty that will come out from the roundabouts will surely transform our cities and beautify our countries”.

She said “I realise that as we are talking about sanitation we cannot take out the general outlook of the structures which includes our roads”

The President’s wife also called upon companies’ organization and individuals to come forward and partner with BEAM trust so that construction of  more beautiful state of the art roundabouts move to other cities.

Lilongwe City Assembly’s (LCA) Chief Executive Officer, Moza Zeleza said the unveiling of the two roundabouts shows the strong partnership between BEAM and LCA which has seen to be bearing fruits and growing.

The reconstruction of the roads was done after consultation from the Malawi Police Service, LCA, Roads Authority and Road Traffic Directorate to ensure safety of the users especially motorists

The reconstruction of the works which started in March 2016, is expected to finish in September 2016.

Upon finishing the two roundabouts, will be most beautify roundabouts in Malawi.

    Excuse me, is Beatify Malawi Trust a localized and specialized in cities only?

    You spent two years teaching Lilongwe resident how to keep the city clean.
    Basi tigoti mpaka 2099, mukusesa mu Lilongwe mo.

    All this while village women walk for hours, each day, to fill buckets from dirty puddles, risking disease and never finding enough for their families even to drink! Where are your priorities?

    1. Khethesa says:

      It’s all because they are living in their own world not Malawi. They don’t know what the real Malawi is and its priorities

        I thought it was the City Council which was constructing those ugly roundabouts. Sorry the mayor. Sorry the CEO of Lilongwe. Truth be said, there is nothing beautiful about those roundabouts. In fact they are death traps. Simple roundabouts with flowers could have made the city more beautiful. I have never seen any roundabout in nthe world that is as as ugly as those in Liloongwe.
        Please divert the money to real projects that can transform the livelihood of hewe povos. What is in a roundabout? Who designed them? BEAM is defacing Lilongwe. big time. The next govt MUST demolish those ugly roundabouts.

        1. Mvulayagunda says:

          The Parliament roundabout is not too bad because it is low enough for a driver to see all four sides. However, the Capital Hotel one is going to be one big death trap: Which idiot came up with this design? It’s too high such that you can only see two sides. This should be demolished forthwith. How did the Road Traffic Directorate approve of such an obvious disaster?

          I have no doubt that the next Government will bring back our beautiful grass and flowers roundabouts. But long before that, these hideous tiles will have been defaced – I doubt that there will be night guards on these roundabouts. Why waste precious resources in this way?

      Why can’tyou use the money to buy medicine?? nonsense government. And why wearing party color?? supiti

      1. Bindura Ngalonde says:

        Where is party colour here? Ubulutu basi!

      …..defeating Muslows hierachy.kukongoletsa kunja kubisa mavuto ali mmamidzimu. Am so sure padyedwa ndalama pamenepa. Its a good idea to beautify the cities but addressing critical problems is ideal in our situation.
