Minister assures MP Kadzamira Ntchisi-Malomo Road on Malawi govt priority

Minister of Transport and Public Works Francis Kasaila has assured Ntchisi North independent Member of Parliament Boniface Kadzamira that Ntchisi-Malomo Road is a priority of government and will be given necessary attention.

Kadzamira: Ntchisi-Malomo Road in bad state

Kasaila made the assurance after the MP had written the minister a letter dated July 22 2015,  copied to the chief executive officer of   National Roads Authority(NRA )and district commissioner, to make the road a priority.

“I would appreciate if this road were given priority for immediate grading and gravelling, especially in sections which are badly damaged. The Ntchisi-Malomo Road is the only road that connects people from Ntchisi North to Ntchisi Boma to access facilities like hospitals and banks,” reads Kadzamira’s letter.

Kadzamira also said the Ntchisi-Malomo Road is the shortest route to Lilongwe via Mponela but is now almost impassable.

The MP expressed concern that it is becoming difficult to transport patients, “especially pregnant women,” to Ntchisi District Hospital due to the bad state of the road.

He said: “We have had situations where women deliver on the way to the hospital due to the bumpy road surface.”

Kasaila has since said the road in question is a priority but is road is under “feasibility and detailed design stage” assuring that it will be given the necessary attention once all the groundwork is done.

President Peter Mutharika also said this week that a number of feasibility studies will be done this year of several roads to prepare for eventual construction works in a few years’ time.

“Good roads improve the welfare of Malawians by providing improved accessibility and mobility and access to socio-economic activities and services,” stated Mutharika.

He said the development agenda of the DPP government is stated “very clearly” in the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy (MGDS) which, among other priority areas has placed the development of road infrastructure as one of the priority areas in order to provide improved access and mobility for the people of Malawi especially those living in rural areas.

    Hilter
    I think you come from there but you have not gone there for a while. This road needs to be maintained as the mp has said. It is in bad state that now days one may wonder if such road exist.
    The only option to travel to Ns boma ios to use motor cycle not a car. Thats why the mp is only asking the grave road only so that petients should atleast have access to district hospital

    Boniface , kumeneko ndiye kubwera. Get in touch with them, write even quarterly as a reminder to make sure you , pay them a visit, use your auction skills to benefit the people in your area. Don’t listen to people who don’t represent anybody including their own relative, can not ask them to represent them even in a simple marriage arrangement. Well done !

    I don’t get it, did this MP ask about the gravelling of the road? That’s nonsense! My parents there find it had to move because of that road. Ask for a tarmac road man

    Starting projects they will never complete like Jali-Chitakale road.
    Lero anthu akuyanika ufa ku phalombe, kumene magalimoto odutsa kumeneko ndi zobanduka za kwa nyezelera mmamawa ndi madzulo.
    Mpaka pano malipiro athu sanatipatse nde mbuzi yina nkumati dpp ndi yachitukuko, IMBECILE

    Does Minister Kasaila know that this Malomo- Ntchisi road has not Even been graded this year? Kodi n’kupala komwe kukufunikanso feasibility study? Koma mwatilanga kuno ku ntchisi. Bolanso JB bcoz kupala kokha umapalidwako msewu umenewu.

    Don’t make a mistake by joining DPP , that will be your last chance of being an MP in your political career in the Central Region. Go and ask Kunsaila and Kandodo.

    Be as you are being an independent MP if not just join MCP being your regional party.
    OCHEWA OCHEWA !!!! OYEEEE!!!

  7. jb says:

    Malawi needs expressways (highways) to connect major cities (the ones you see abroad) and many more new roads in the cities!!! privatize the road network to attract investment from the private sector and improve the infrastructure

  8. Blessed Banda says:

    No 2, arev you sure there is no mistake on this combination? had goes together with “written”or to read “had written a letter”. Otherwise the report would have dropped “had” and just write “after the MP wrote a letter”.

  9. Patrick Phiri says:

    It’s only DPP in the multi-party era that is serious about roads. Others failed miserably

  10. Edwin Mwalwen says:

    No mistake bro unless u don’t know that “had” and “wrote” r past tense.
    He wrote a letter to the minister.
    The response of a minister has come after the MP’s letter, hw wud u write ursef?

  11. Tili Chenene says:

    “Had wrote …..” My computer should have told me that this mistake is obvious.
