Minister of Industry, Trade and Tourism, Salim Bagus visited the international five star hotel at Chichiri on Friday and  the  team  from his ministry was impressed with accommodation rooms and the quality standards.

“This hotel will definately change the face of Blantyre,” he said.

There are also other infrastructure development projects initiated by the President Peter Mutharika administration  such as the construction a new stadium and convention centre in Blantyre.

The Mutharika administration is  also planning to construct roads that will help ease congestion in Blantyre City, such as the Limbe by-pass road which will see motorists from Bangwe connect to Zomba Road without having to pass through Limbe.

Aside from the Limbe by-pass, Mutharika promised that there will be a construction of Michiru, Chikwawa and Chileka Road that will take motorists straight to the airport, thereby decongesting traffic in Blantyre and along the Chirimba Road.

Mutharika also said the road from Ndirande to Makhetha passing through the foot of Ndirande Mountain will be completed.

Good development but let’s start building vertically and not horizontally. 2020 kumalawi olo sky scrapper ndi imodzi yomwe zero. That’s a sad reality.

Kodi kumagona ndani ku ma hotel uku? I mean seriously we have a lot of hotels and it seems they make good profits. Our airports are not that busy.
