Malawi names China-funded stadium after Bingu wa Mutharika

Malawi government has named the  Chinese-funded stadium being built in   in the capital city, Lilongwe after  late president Bingu wa Mutharika.

The stadium, which is earmarked for completion in November,  will be called Bingu National Stadium.

Youth Sports Minister Grace Obama Chiumia confirmed the development and said this is in honour of the fallen leader who initiated the construction of the stadium with a 40 000 capacity.

“The reason was that the late president was the one who initiated this project and cabinet felt it wise and proper to name it in his honour,” said Chiumia.

The stadium is being built with funding from the Chinese government.

The $70 million (K26.6 billion) stadium built in Lilongwe boasts an extendable roof, electronic and electrical equipment, an electronic scoreboard, 110 closed-circuit television cameras and a posh VIP lounge.

Once completed, 85 percent of the stadium will have covered stands with in-built floodlights.

The stadium was previously moved to Blantyre by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) under the leadership of late Mutharika but later President Joyce Banda who took over the leadership following Mutharika’s sudden death relocated it back to Lilongwe.

She laid a foundation stone marking the beginning of the construction of the stadium on 11th July, 2012.

Meanwhile,  Malawi government has arranged a trip to Zambia for officials in the Ministry of Sports to learn how to manage the stadium .

China already built a similar stadium in Lusaka, Zambia.

Deputy principal secretary in the ministry, Symon Maliko, said the orientation is to prepare for eventual takeover of the facility from the Ministry of Lands.

  6. Mandevu Waluza says:

    Only for this stadium we need to consult all Malawians to avoid changing of the name in future. I do not think DPP will be there forever. UDF changed Kamuzu Stadiun to Chichiri Stadium and when DPP came in it was reversed back to Kamuzu Stadium. Please only for this stadium let us have the name that will be agreed upon by all Malawians and not only very few ones.

    Guys, Chinese built a 60,00-seater stadium in Dar es Salaam Tanzania at a total cost of $56 million. Is the $70 million for a 40,000-seater stadium fair for Malawi or someone somewhere is taking the other 20%?

  29. Mwiza says:

    Bingu didn’t want the stadium built in Lilongwe so in my raw thinking it shouldn’t have been his name. Anyway, it’s ok.

    1. Malindima says:

      The issue of where the stadium was to be built is irrelevant. What matters most is that it has been built in Malawi and was initiated by one of the bright sons of Malawi. We argued on similar sentiments in 1972 when Kamuzu wanted to relocate the capital city from Zomba to Lilongwe. The west opposed to his idea and therefore did not assist him with aid on this one except for RSA on his persevierence. Could we say we can’t appreciate him just because he wanted to develope his home Region? Not at all! He is also one of the bright sons Malawi has ever produced hence: Kamuzu Central Hospital, Kamuzu ……… with a long list if things named after him.
      Therefore Bingu National Stadium befits this reason.

    DPP frastrations! Kulakalaka kuzula kupititsa kwao

  31. Jelbin mk says:

    Are we going to name every structure in Malawi after the initiating presidents? Then how many former presidents names will be there?

  38. Weniweni Balakasa says:

    Why african govts are fond of naming national structures in honour of their political party leaders who have done little contribution to the development of the nations? The best name could be Lilongwe national stadium. Grace chiume jack up such names are likely to be reversed when new party govt takes over. For example flag change and KIA. Dpp cabinet can not learn a lesson

  39. mmihavani says:

    I dont understand mbuli zonse zomwe zikuti the stadium should be called Joyce Banda. Koma mwana akabadwa whose surname does he/she use, is it the one who impregnated or the one who took care of the baby?

  40. mmihavani says:

    Achewa mwano siukukuyenerani. Honestly Bingu did alot in Lilongwe than in Blantyre. Let us learn to be honest. Lilongwe yasukusula lero and ikuoneka bwino, ngakhale anthu ake ali otuwa, chifukwa cha Bingu. There was nothing that was done by Bingu in Blantyre. Good roads, a highway, hotel of international standard, Kamuzu Musoleum, Parliament, Stadium etc ndiye osamalalata ayi. Nyawu anazichotsa munsewu and cleaned it. For the first time a good road to Nchisi etc

  41. Jk always says:

    Palibe vuto ndipo boma lachita bwino ndipo coz of this name flames idziwina mwina tipite ku world cup. Mumaziwa dzina limathandiza bingu eyi mamuna bambo zina lafika maiko ambiri ili world cup tikamenya basi. Kamuzu tamuyesa walekedza pa africa cup of nation pano tiyese bingu name. Mukuona ngati dzina amangopereka chipereke pereke eti? Mufuna maina apakati achina poferakwenje, ochakwera chamba chani?. Asafuna afuna bingu wa mutharika stadium khani yatha. Achina joyce banda mayina omaika pa shop. Zikomo

  42. alukosyo says:

    Ikanakhala National Stadium basi not Bingu pambalipa
    on management we are very poor. chitivuta ichi kusamala. ngati ma cctv sikugwira ntchito ku state house ndiye mwati apa hmmmm

  43. M'malawi nr 1 says:

    Will the stadium be known as” Ngwazi Proffessor Dr Bingu wa Mutharika stadium”? By the time the name is fully pronounced, Someone will have drunk all his cocacola, or a car will have travelled atleast 5km. Why not just name it “National stadium” or “independence stadium” and do away with shrines.

  44. wanangwa says:

    We will change the name when DPP is out of power

  45. kanyimbi says:

    Bingu should be honoured for finding the donors to build the stadium. Moreover the stadium is for Malawi and Lilongwe is part of Malawi. Even if it was built in Nsanje there was no problem.

  46. paulo says:

    Is it correct that when bingu died, billions of US dollars and other currency was found in suitcases in his palace, the same money that was supposed to be for the welfare of malawi and its citizens ? and now a national stadium bears his name like he is in the same league as Nelson Mandela or other humanitarian heroes ! The world is laughing .

  47. zuze says:

    Abale, tili nayo kale Bingu International Conference center. It is enough. Why Bingu – Bingu again????? Alomwe inu!!!!

  48. kaya muitchula kuti chani,kaya ikhala yopanda dzina ndilibe nazo ntchito ine changa ndiçhimwemwe kuti anamangidwa kulilongwe.

  49. I think to name the stadium after Bingu is the right thing to do,I agree with you ”above” for insinuating that China is building Stadiums all over Africa,
    somehow you’re devoid of reasoning the question you supposed to ask yourself is
    who came up with an Idea of chucking out Taiwans and bring in Chinese? the answer is Bingu` thereupon he’s getting the recognition he deserves,from whatever angle you can look at it you will see the finger is pointing at Bingu
    Almost all the Government structures and parastatals were named after Kamuzu(the dictator)
    Thanks to Atcheya the champion of democracy for bringing democracy in Malawi,if it was for Atcheya who knows maybe all our private properties would be named after him(The Ngwazi)

  53. Mtumbo Utuma says:

    Akuluakulu Bingu was the best strategic president Malawi has ever had. Anali munthu wowona patali. Why brame someone on Zero budget when u r all going there and u offer no alternative. This is the problem with Malawians always settling for mediocrity.

    The only crime Moya committed was to refuse to be a stogee of EU.

    There is no strategy your JB introduced to be worth praised apart from licking the boot of EU.

    The catholic church made the same blunder of sidelining one of the best contemplary theologian in the world by the name of Patrick Kalilombe who planned the future of the church almost 50 years ago and as is aklways the case with malawians settled for mediocrity in terms of bishops to guide them.

    One of the reason malawi is one of the poorest country in the world is because of this culture of settling of mediocrity.

I have been in Thyolo u cant compare those mulakhoz and people from LL kuukonda mpila ayi, chibwana cha mchombo lende chenicheni, they are very good t womanising and proscution, so to name the Stadium under his name its total assasination and a Morkery to LL peaple, if so aply a name on the centre to apriciate the Late, so it must be Bingu mpumulo wabata Ndata Stadium. Kk.

  56. Kadakwiza says:

    Bingu National Stadium? My foot. What had he done to Malawians. Moreover he wanted to be built in Ndata. Malawians, wakeup.

  57. Benz says:

    It does not make sense that the new stadium and almost all Chinese projects that he initiated should bear his name. Malawians have not forgotten how Bingu moved the
    phenomenal project to his village before he died. Honoring him for such a project when he is not the one who brought it to Lilongwe is an insult. Give Dr Joyce Banda her dues
    for being unselfish and reversing the decision. Some good deeds you cannot just bury anyhow.

    Initiative alone can’t be a reason enough for naming the stadium. There can be some reasons, yes, but more importantly not that one.

  60. Bwande says:

    Bingu moved this stadium to Blantyre just as he did to MUST. I think this is a mockery to Lilongwe residents and others who wanted it to be centrally located

  61. Patricia says:

    naye uyo mukumutu minister of sports obama.why naming it without consulting amalawi tonse. mutiyesa ife zitsilu eti. there are so many names you could have named our stadium like hero stadium in honour of players like dzimbiri, dandize ndi ena ambiri. kuphangila basi. musatipangise kufuna ku kaguba chifukwa cha dzina la staduim. mudzafa imfa yowawa mwanva inu azinduna a pitala

  66. ujeni says:

    Bingu did not initiate the building of the staduim. China is building staduims all over Africa not only in Malawi. Stupid DPP government and its Minister of Sports are personalising infrastructure development as if we are still in dictatorship. Show us the money DPP government of Bingu used to construct the stadium? Dont take Malawians like fools.

  67. Fwangalubiro says:

  69. Chipoya LJ. says:

    Remember we have, Kamuzu Palace, Kamuzu International Airport, Kamuzu Stadium, Kamuzu Procession Road, Kamuzu Bridge. Kamuzu Central Hospital, Kamuzu College of Nursing, Kamuzu Barracks and others. Why not with Bingu? Ntchito za manja ake zimuchitire umboni basi.

    Let’s we not politicize everything. Isn’t it good to honor somebody’s achievements. Let’s we all agree that Bingu tried his beautify the City of Lilongwe with important structures like roads, buildings and others. How I wish people of Lilongwe and the entire central region to be the first ones to applaud late Bingu and moreover all we wanted is a good and modern structure (stadium) like this one. The name itself do matter nothing to me.

    Even if it were to be constructed in Blanytyre, inakakhalabe ya a Malawi basi is Blantyre not in Malawi? We have Kamuzu stadium in Blantyre, does it benefit only those in Blantyre and Southern region? Politics by failed political morons in opposition camps.

    All in all, GOD Bless Malawi!!!!!!!!

  70. The Truthful One from the West says:

    Bingu wa Mutharika was not a visionary leader as he brought Malawi to its knees by April 2012. Those who call him a visionary leader are blind DPP Supporters. As long as Malawians do not criticise their leaders including the President when they make blunders Malawi as one of the poorest countries in the world 50years after independence will continue to remain poor.

    1. Kes munthali says:

      Za zii ! Palibe chanzeru apa..

  71. Noname says:

    The Reserve Bank about to be ready was also Bingu’s plan. So will it be named Bingu Reserve Bank. NB Hospital in its final stage was also initiated by Moya. Will be be known as Bingu Nkhata Bay District Hospital?

  72. Mphongo Zidana says:

    Please give the stadium a neutral name. Let not use political figures names. Political figures come and go, but these neutral names shall remain.

    If we want the names of people like Bingu to remain amidst us, then history books are the right place for them.

  76. popapo says:

    My advise to Peter is that Bootlickers will always cheat even the most credible mind. Your Excellency, you know the politics that surrounded the construction of this stadium (place). Malawians will not cancel your endorsement to the proposed name BUT surely do you want it that way. As brother to Late Bingu do you want his name to be ridiculed all the time ? Please put more land mark developments and name one of them after Bingu let the stadium get a national name if JB ‘s name is a curse to Malawians.

  77. JOYCE NATIONAL STADIUM says:

    MAI JOYCE BANDA RELOCATED THE FACILITY TO CENTRE OF MALAWI,FROM THE JAWS OF THE GREEDY BINGU.CREDIT GOES TO JOYCE BANDA .I URGE ALL MALAWIANS WHO HAVE BEEN IMPRESSED WITH WHAT MAI BANDA DID TO SUPPORT ME RIGHT HERE ONLINE ON NYASA TIMES.AS FOR ME I BELONG TO NO PARTY BUT LETS PLS REMEMBER MAI BANDA FOR HER RATIONAL DECISSION.BINGU HAS WHITE ELEPHANT BINGU NSANJE PORT.YES TO “JOYCEBANDA NATIONAL STADIUM!”.MPAMVU KWAIFE ANTU.

  82. Alfred Munduwabo says:

    Just call it NATIONAL STADIUM.

    We already have BINGU CONFERENCE CENTRAL. Malawi has a population of over 16 million people , we should not have politicians trying to please their masters. For that stadium to be where it is built it was against Bingu’s idea. Let’s not go into details.
    He did his part , some were good and some were bad. Malawi was saved by his death.
    NATIONAL STADIUM , would be a neutral name , don’t go too much into pleasing a deadwood.

  83. Matey U .Mopiya says:

    Bingu Stadium no!but Lilongwe stadium ,ndikatoyesa mbuyache Bingu anati stadium yikatomangidwa ku Blantyre osati Lilongwe monga ma MP anagwiri zana ku Parliament ,kupanda Mai JB stadium bwenzi itamangidwa ku Ndata Thyolo .
    Tikupempha ma MP akakambilane za dzina la stadium ,ma cabinet ministers achuluka Chinyengo .We are in democracy let everybody have a say on naming of the stadium .

  84. wobeba wanga says:

    No, it should still be Bingu Stadium because he is the one who brought that Idea to construct that facility. And in fact, the initiative was to be constructed in Blantyre not Lilongwe

  85. Bob says:

    Asaaa!!!!!

  86. KING SOLOMONS WISDOM says:

    PLS CALL THIS “JOYCE BANDA NATIONAL STADIUM”. REASONS:(1) SHE RELOCATED THE NATIONAL STADIUM FROM THE GREEDY BINGU’S AREA TO THE CENTRE OF MALAWI.NOT ONLY TO THE CENTRE OF MALAWI BUT TO THE CAPITAL CITY . SECONDLY SHE LAID THE FOUNDATION STONE. THIRDLY ,BINGU ALREADY HAS “BINGU PORT OF NSANJE-white elephant”,AND BINGU COMFERENCE CENTRE. IT IS WE THE MALAWIANS WHO PUT UP A FIGHT AGAINST BINGU’S GREED AND MAMA JOYCE BANDA GAVE THE NOD AND LAID FOUNDATION STONE AT THE RIGHT PLACE BINGU HAD WANTED THE FACILITY TO BE AT HIS VILLAGE .PLS DO NOT HONOR GREED.VIVA,” JOYCE BANDA NATIONAL STADIUM!”.

    Is it really a national stadium or a DPP opportunist stadium? please do not complicate issues here.Bingu has no share in this issue however he is dead and it was his obligation to initiate these projects all in all he was on the MG payroll.With this mindset am afraid we are heading for disaster.We already have Bingu Conference Centre why no choose a neutral name instead of this politically motivated biased name.

    No problem to name the stadium Bingu but my appeal to Prof APM we need another stadium in Blantyre like the Emirates of Arsenal kkkkk.Am sure you are aware of this problem of stadium in BT and you will not let us down in your presence.In Prof APM and DPP,we trust.

  94. Patrick says:

    Better call it Joyce Banda International Stadium as she is the one who moved construction of the stadium from Blantyre to Lilongwe. It is better when it is in Lilongwe than when it was going to be in Soche kwa Manje.

  95. kwenda says:

    lilongwe stadium fine, not Bingu.

  96. Kakha Erutu says:

    “………., because it is in honor of Bingu, the visionary leader who initiated it”.

  97. KASIYAMALIRO says:

    Koma Amalawi sitimamva. Cholinga cha ma Minister ndi kusangalatsa APM basi. Tinatopa nazo izi. Kodi ndimayesa a Bingu anafuna kuti Stadium ibwere ku Blantyre? Do not personalize ma national projects. Tawasiyani A Bingu apumule!

  99. Moya says:

    I hear ministry of lands and sports on stadium management my heart drops none of those electronic gudgets will be functional in the first year. These government employees care less pliz subcontract a private company to manage this important national asset
