I  lived in Zingwangwa before, says Mutharika: Promises new market, more infrastructure

President Peter Mutharika has said his government will construct a new market for the people of Zingwangwa Township in Blantyre.

Mutharika whistle-stop in Blantyre attracted thousands of supporters

Speaking during a whistle-stop tour in Zingwangwa on Sunday, Mutharika said the area is at his heart as he once lived in Zingwangwa before going to United States of America where he stayed for many years.

“When I look at you the people of Zingwangwa, I see my brothers and sisters because before going to America, I was living in Zingwangwa. I came here in 2014 and promised you of developments which the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) government has implemented.

“Now I want to tell you that we will build a new market here in Zingwangwa and the funds are already available for the construction project,” Mutharika disclosed.

Mutharika said that his government has implemented so many infrastructural developments which were left unfinished by the previous government including the Thyolo University and the Masauko Chipembere Highway.

“After the death of Bingu, Joyce Banda’s government failed to finish the construction of Masauko-Chipembere Highway, Must (Malawi University of Science and Technology), Bingu National Stadium, BICC but the DPP government has finished all of these projects,” the President said.

The Malawi leader  also said that under his government, over 90 bridges have been constructed including the 180 meter Chikwawa-Chapananga Bridge, the longest in the country and also the Blantyre Dual Carriage Way, the Chichiri Business Center and also the Cement-Malata program.

Mutharika then added that in July, the construction of an eight storey building near Mount Soche in Blantyre will start and also the 180 kilometer Blantyre ring-road which connects from Chigumala-Mpemba-Michiru-Lunzu-Njuli- Mzedi- Machinjiri-Bangwe.

I am of the opinion that proposals for development programmes should come from citizens to the President (down-top approach) not the other way around. How does the President analyse citizens’ felt needs and set priotise. Secondary the President tells us what he has done for us instead of us telling him what we have received from him. I see everything upside down. We are on the ground and we know what we really need. At 54 years old were are no toddlers that need to be told what he should do for us. For example if residents of Zingwangwa were… Read more »

Well said, my friend. This man hasn’t a clue what development really means to the ordinary citizen of Malawi. Does he want to know? He should try asking instead of presuming that he knows all the answers. He lived 40 years in USA and is totally out of touch with the people he left behind. Now he is back he thinks he knows all the answers. The election results in May will make it clear that he doesn’t.
