Malopa is a project promoter for CMI venture consisting three projects conceived and pursued by Cape Maclear Hotel and Golf Resort  Limited.

He is quoted in the local press saying the project has  already identified sponsors, including NEO Energy Asia, China Harbour Engineering from China, Al Manhal International Group from Abu Dhabi in United Arab Emirates (UAE) and AE7 Group of Companies as project finance and development managers.

Accoridng to Malopa, Nico Holdings Limited and conglomerate Press Corporation Limited (PCL)  are also in the loop and discussions are at an advanced stage.

“The  investors are  ready to pump into this project between 30 percent and 40 percent of the total project cost whereas the rest will be debt from PTA Bank, African Development Bank (AfDB), Afrexim, KFW and HSBC and hedge funds from Switzerland subject to clear position on Mangochi Airport,” Malopa is quoted by The Nation.

According to what Malopa told the paper,  CMI is exploring possibilities of empowering locals with the help of United States Agency for International Development (USaid) to invest in fish farming to supply the resort and other external markets.

CMI is an ambitious project that could change the face of Monkey Bay and turn it into a mini city, according to unnamed tourism experts cited by The Nation.

How did he find himself as the project coordinator? Was the post advertised or its the same scenario of nepotism and cronyism. We need people who have clean records not these mbuzi zongokhalira kuba…kodi malopa yi si amene MBC inamukanika uyu. Shame on Malawi.

Dr Chodziwadziwa, Malopa is not project coordinator but a project promoter. I think the two are not the same. Maybe your question should be why Malopa when Mota-Engel was chased from same area? Where did Malopa get the money to buy the land he is to develop when Mota-engel failed to win the support of the people?

Please appreciate that this is his private project. It is the same as you running a kabaza business and making yourself managing director of your business.
