those crooks in power will already be calculating how much they can steal the EU should insist Malawi shoot anybody caught stealing the funds or material . it works in Ghana so why not Malawi. In Ghana I saw three bank robbers shot down running away and one wounded , he was shot dead immediately in the street at close range , no stupid trials or greedy lawyers .

The EU must pay the money directly to the contractor as the ADBF did with the Mzuzu /Nkhata bay road.

Very good and welcome gesture but I would suggest that the financing institution provide the contractor as well so that the project will not suffer from intermittent funding woes. Otherwise our government officials will put their fingers in the monetary jar and steal.
