President Joyce Banda has promised to build airport in Mangochi if she will win the forthcoming May 20 Tripartite Elections.
Banda made the remarks during a rally she addressed in Mangochi on Sunday.
She said the lakeshore tourism resort district of Mangochi needed to have better infrastructure after it was upgraded to the status of Municipal City Council by the Bingu Wa Mutharika regime.
She also promised to build a new road from Mangochi-to Monkey Bay to promote tourism in the district along the Lake Malawi.
“Mangochi is big district and needs to have better infrastructure for it to become a tourism hub in the country,” President Banda said.
“We also need a better road from Mangochi to Monkey Bay.’
The President also promised to introduce mechanised farming in the country to boost agricultural production in the country.
On the mechanised farming she emphasised that she had already secured funding.
This comes amid a number of infrastructural development and projects which she has promised since launching the campaign period on March 22 at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe including the building of Inland Port at Liwonde.
The President challenged that people, who have been saying that she was losing popularity would be shocked because of the support she had been having during her campaign rallies.
