Malawians will for the first time in 25 years watch football under floodlights when Bingu International Stadium opens in April.
Government chief architect in the ministry of Transport Night Munthali said there are few areas that need to be done before the multibillion multipurpose stadium opens its doors to the sports fraternity.
“The sewer system needs to be completed, there is no power, the electricity we have there is just temporary and we need to install communication systems for internet, we are expecting MTL fibre cable,” said Munthali.
Minister of Sports Grace Chiumia said her ministry has written treasury of the problems.
“We have written the ministry of Finance to release the money so that we finish the works there,” she said.
She said installation of eletricity, water and communication was the responsible of the government.
The Chinese government handed over the stadium to the government on November, 2015.
On security, Chiumia said a room will be made available to police for a police post at the stadium which has already suffered vandalism by vandals from suspected crime prone area of Mgona.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
