Malawi received provided $35 million (about K26 billion)  grant from  Japan International Cooperation Agency (Jica) has for the rehabilitation, upgrading and improvement of radar surveillance system at KIA.

This grant helped Malawi  to beat the International Civil Aviation Organisation (Icao) 2020 deadline to have the facility refurbished or risk being blacklisted.

The airport was operating without a functional radar surveillance system following the breakdown of the one installed in 1982 when the airport was constructed.

The Japanese ambassador was very impressed with the beautiful work he saw.

He encouraged those using the facilities to take care of them.

Iwakiri  also hailed the bilateral cooperation that exists between Malawi and Japan.

There is no truth in what the Ambassador said. The work done was very shoddy. A Malawi, Kusayenda kapena kupepetulidwa? Can we really accept such manyaziful piece of work at the entry point of our country? Peter ndi azinzako onse mwandinyasa. Ndikanakutukwanani koma ndakumverani chisoni. Muchokedi mwatiwonongera dziko. Very unpatriotic thieves. Go to Goliati and Mpumulo wa Mbava or whatever you call it.

The Japanese are very respectful people. That’s why they didn’t tell you to your face how disappointed they are that you wasted their money building this piece of shit

The Ugly Airport terminal that was added is not up to standard. It should be pulled down. I ma sure Dr Banda in turning in his grave in disgust.

Boy appreciate when someone has provided you a running toilet than your usual pit latrine. By the way your leaders and their relations are busy abusing your tax that would have added to that grant and make it look much better. Just shut up and talk to your leaders. This is your country and not Japan. Stop thinking Iike a toddler
