Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president and the Tonse Alliance torch bearer Dr. Lazarus Chakwera has promised the people of Mangochi that his government will upgrade the lakeshore district to City and construct Masauko Chipembere International Airtport meant to boost the tourism industry in Malawi.
The MCP leader was speaking during a rally on Sunday at Monkey Bay where he was joined by former president Joyce Banda, MCP Vice President Sidik Mia, UTM Vice President Micheal Usi, former Vice President Khumbo Kachale and CTF Commander-In-Chief Timothy Mtambo.
“We want Mangochi to be a centre of tourism in Malawi,” said Chakwera in the televised rally.
“We have plans in place to turn this beautiful place into a lake city and construct Masauko Chipembere Airport. We also have plans to put up a fish factory that will also help boost the economy of the city,” he said amid cheering by the gathering.
He also said the Tonse Alliance government will promote unity among Malawians and end tribalism, regionalism among others.
“I am forming the next government with Dr. Saulos Chilima. We are not the only ones in the alliance. We also have People’s Party, Aford, Freedom Party and many others.
“On top, this is an alliance for all of us. We want Malawi to benefit Malawians and we will do all we can to make sure that we restore the peace and development in the country,” he said.
Malawi will once again vote for president in June following the court’s nullification of the 2019 presidential elections marred by irregularities and rigging schemes.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
