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.

Politics and selfishness down. This should be Joice Banda Stadium. She brought it to Lilongwe and built it to almost complete. Do not show hatred on such developments. bury your hate and hard heartedness.

Kkkkkk Peter , please don’t think like a chicken….really simply because there is hunger government should abandon such important projects? Technically that’s impossible as the project funds are a package in the loan agreement. If you talk of utilities that are remaining government has to fulfil that obligation as it can’t abandon the project at this point.


“…which has already suffered vandalism…”

This statement should have read “which has already suffered theft” we need to know how to define vandalism and theft. Public asset damaged with nothing stolen is vandalism. Public asset with some components stolen…is theft. If one is caught in theft case…proportional laws should apply in tandem with theft.
