Victoria Kingston MP:  Villagers stranded

Four hundred hectares of land at Traditional Authority Mponda in the district were earmarked for the construction of an international airport by the immediate past Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration.

Speaking in Parliament, Member of Parliament for Mangochi Central, Victoria Kingstone said the villagers are currently stranded as they have no place to cultivate. She asked the government to move with speed in compensating the villagers.

“About 900 household surrounding the proposed Mangochi International Airport site are in dilemma, they do not know where to cultivate because their land was earmarked for the airport,” said Kingstone while appealing to the Tonse administration to bail them out.

The Mangochi Central legislature, Kingstone also asked President Lazarus Chakwera administration not to abandon the airport project saying it will help in job creation online with the Tonse Philosophy of creating one million jobs.

The African Export-Import Bank (AFREXIM) and Malawi government signed a multi-billion kwacha agreement for the construction of the International airport and a five star hotel in Mangochi.

Victoria Kingstone was voted in as a DPP MP. Why did she not pressure her own party to pay the compensation when it was was ruling the country?
