Forum for development of Mangochi to be launched  August 31

A newly established social and developmental oriented grouping called Forum for the Social and Economic Development of Mangochi (FOSEMA) will on Saturday August 31 2019  be launched and on the same day hold its first ever electoral conference.

Mwachande: We want to develop Mangochi
Sembereka: Conference will shape direction of Fosema

As the saying goes, East or West home is best, residents, authorities, sons and daughters of Mangochi have embarked on a prestigious journey that serves to liberate challenges the district is facing. Fosema, a grouping of like minded sons and daughters of the Malawi’s tourists’ haven was formed in a quest to contribute to effective social economic transformation of the lake shore district.

The first ever conference of the grouping to discuss the constitution, and develop working guidelines is set for August 31 to be held at one of the resorts along the shores of magnificent lake of stars in the district.

This self sponsored conference will attract well over 300 participants including sons and daughters of Mangochi is diaspora, residents and indeed people whose home of origin is Mangochi but resides in other districts and cities within Malawi.

Smith Kamwana one of the organisers of the event encouraged all Mamgochians to register for the conference.

Kamwana challenged all people from Mangochi that traditional dances, local food particularly the renowned Tilapia, Chambo and Mpasa meals will spice up the day.

Jonathan Mtaula is the interim treasurer for the lake shore conference and says preparations have since taken shape and that soon they will announce the confirmed venue.

“We are grateful that sons and daughters of Mangochi have embraced the initiative they started. So far, people have made pledges and some are making cash contributions towards hosting of the first-ever conference to be held on 31st. We will announce the actual venue soon,” said Mtaula.

Echoing Mtaula’s assertions, reverend McDonald Sembereka said the conference will shape the direction of FOSEMA.

Sembereka said the grouping will compliment government’s effort in transforming the district to greater heights.

 

“We aim to work on improving health, education, environment, economy and indeed infrastructure through interventions that are citizenry driven,” said Sembereka.

Acting sspokesperson for the grouping Allie Mwachande told Nyasa Times that some of the activities to happen during the Saturday meeting include appointment of trustees, adoption of constitution, passing of provisional budget and other general issues.

“This is the day we are launching the group and we expect to fill all the leadership positions. It is purely and strictly a grouping of people who come from Mangochi and have the interest of developing their home district” said Mwachande.

The meeting will take place at Ra Riviera Lodge, at MALDECO right at the heart of Mangochi district.

According to Mwachande, the objective of coming up with the forum is to among other things sensitize the people of Mangochi the importance of developmental activities in the sectors of health, education among others.

“This is the project we people of Mangochi are in dire need of and one of our major focus is on the construction of an international airport. Government is very committed and seems some other people are resisting on baseless reasons so we will make sure we sit down with the, sensitize them the importance and benefits to come if this mega project comes to Mangochi,” Said Mwachande.

The grouping is made up of technocrats in different spheres, policy formulators and implementers, chiefs, politicians and citizens at large.

I can’t comment any further to the great idea of the people of Mangochi to come up with this idea of a conference. In all fairness government needs such kind of mitigation for it to advance development. Kudos the organizers. Together we can

That’s very encouraging..keep it up..Mangochi is being developed by its fellow Mangochians and now is the time to push government to assist in different developments activities since they are also paying Tax to the government

Instead of encouraging your fellow Malawians on development, you are showing your very sad true colors of jealousy….Unfortunately, you will always be you… Very sad for our country.
