Lucius Banda wants compensation for victims of ‘beautiful’ road construction Balaka to Bilira via Khwisa

Member of Parliament for Balaka North, Lucius Banda has asked government to give compensation to families and individuals  who  have been affected during the road construction from Balaka to Bilira via Khwisa.

Lucius Banda: It’s a beautiful road and I thank government for the construction of Balaka to Bilira via Khwisa road

Banda thanked the government for the construction of the road from Balaka to Bilira via Khwisa, saying the construction of the tarmac road has started.

“It is a very beautiful road. As a Member of Parliament I am very proud and I really appreciate,” said Banda.

However,  he appealed to government to consider “compensating a few people that have been affected by the construction of the road.”

He said: “I understand there is no compensation but some people are complaining.  I would like government to consider compensating people whose gardens have been excavated and houses demolished.”

Banda added: “By extension I would also like to remind the ministry to fix the road from Ulongwe to Balaka via Mbera and Toleza.”

He said   along this road there are a lot of serious commercial farms including a cotton ginner.

“Thousands of people are employed in those farms but the road is quite terrible especially Liwawadzi Bridge. I would like to remind the Ministry to do something about it,” said Banda.

Minister of Transport and Public Works , Jappie Mhango, said he was pleased with the sentiments and appreciation from MP Banda about the road that government is  constructing in his constituency and encouraged the parliamentarian to give government “ all the support as we embark on the road to improve most of our roads.”

Said Mhango: ” I have taken note[of]  the issue of compensation.  I will take it up with my agency to see to it that all those who are affected are attended to.

“I have also taken note on the request to fix the road from Ulongwe-Balaka via Mbera-Toleza. I will ask my officials to visit this road to ensure that it is also given due attention. “

I doubt he is honest but indecisive utmost. Immature politically. You remember he accepted to be used/abused during the UDF attempt to remove Bingu Wa Mutharika through impeachment. There were senior UDF members who should have taken up that issue in parliament but they took back seats knowing the aftermath of it. Resultantly, he burnt his figures, got arrested and lost his parliamentary seat. Lately, in this 2014-2019 Parliament, he nurses grudges from the impeachment error and refused to join government side as other UDF MPs did, only to wake up now to realise that government can undertake development in… Read more »

One thing I like Luciuos Banda is that he is honest. He appreciates where it is due and criticizes where it’s gone bad. He was very honest when DPP approached him to join them that he is serving his people under the banner of UDF. He told Atupele the same when Atupele wanted him to together to DPP. He openly told Bingu that Nsanje port will not help Malawians, please listen to people. MALAWI needs such kind of honest and courageous sons and daughters
