Presidential ‘lie’ forces Rumphi people to start rehabilitation of Njakwa Road

People living around Livingstonia area in Rumphi have taken up tools to rehabilitate the Njakwa-Livingstonia Road, saying the pathetic state of the road is making it impossible for them to access certain basic social services.

According to some people who spoke to Nyasa Times on Friday, the road has a lot of gaping potholes and gullies which are making it “impassable.”

Stern Mhango – one of the people working on the road with holes – feared that the condition in which the road is would lead to them not getting some services, “especially health.”

The people, Nyasa Times learnt, have bettered a 20 kilometer stretch – from Njakwa to Chilulu – of the 80 kilometer Njakwa-Livingstonia Road which President Peter Mutharika promised his government would work on.

The President, on March 21, led a delegation to symbolically open the official opening of road’s construction.

Sub Traditional Authority Chisovya confirmed his people working on the road.

“They are feeling the pangs. They had to take an initiative,” said Chisovya.

He said they had written the National Roads Authority (NRA) through the District Commissioner’s office some four months ago but they have received no feedback.

According to our findings, the NRA last worked on the road four years ago.

Rumphi DC Lusizo Nhlane confirmed receiving the complaint and forwarding to NRA.

When contacted, NRA public relations officer Portia Kajanga asked for more time.

Bretheren from Rumphi ask Bushiri to help on that road instead of waiting for these DPP idiots who like lying, lying , and lying; with their Jappipipipipi Mhango lying as well in the name of defending what cannot be defended. I gather Bushiri’s mother comes from Rumphi so he would be happy to ease the suffering of his mother’s kinsfolk.

It is sad and unbelievable the extent of the hatrade Malawians from the South and Central Malawi have against the few Northerners. Really,what is the reason behind this atrocious and ungodly animosity against fellow Malawians who in their minority status,played a pivotal role both in independence and multiparty struggles.Nobody had blocked the opportunities for our brothers in the South and Central to go to school to get education because if they had gone through classes,at least they could broaden their knowledge to demarcate what is good and what is bad.Chasing rats in the forests and dancing nyau,will never uplift your… Read more »

These Tumbukas should not start crying because after Peter Mathanyula did the ground breaking for the road they went to town on MBC radio and tv talking ill in any manner of other people and parties. They will always be taken for a ride because of their folly. Just imagine when Peter was Minister of education in his elder brother’s government (May His soul rest in peace) he went to the same district of Rumphi on a government chopper and laid a foundation stone for a TTC which is nowhere in site up to now. It is a known fact… Read more »
