Malawian President Peter Mutharika has said he has fulfilled most of his 2014 campaign promises he made to the electorate.
Mutharika said at Phalula in Balaka during a whistle-stop political tour that his administration was committed to service delivery, particularly in areas of infrastructure and agriculture.
He highlighted a number development programmes which his government has put in place such as the fertilizer and cement-malata subsidy programmes, saying these will help empower Malawians social economically.
Mutharika said by the end of this year, all 28 community colleges will be completed across the country to help furnish the youth with entrepreneurial skills.
“My government also continues to construct free houses for the elderly and the vulnerable so that they live comfortable lives apart from there also being the Cement and Malata Subsidy Program,” said Mutharika.
Moreover, Mutharika said he will soon conduct a ground breaking ceremony for the launch of an electricity generating plant at Kammwamba in Balaka which will help reduce blackouts in the country.
The President also said his government is constructing police stations in all designated points of the country to minimize crimes in communities.
He re-assured Malawians that nobody is going to die of hunger in the country despite the low maize production brought about by adverse weather conditions precipitated by El Nino in Southern Africa.
President Muthariksa said his government has procured enough maize from within and outside Malawi.
“My government has bought 1.2 million metric tonnes of maize within and outside the country and nobody is going to die of hunger in this country.
“Moreover, Agriculture Development and Marketing Corporation (ADMARC) is still buying the staple grain locally thereby Malawians should not be worried,” explained Mutharika.
Furthermore, heurged all Malawians to focus on the three pillars of; integrity, patriotism and hard work whilst supporting government’s development agenda saying some development activities are short term while others are long term.
