Malawi government disburses controversial K4bn development fund

Government has finally disbursed the controversial K4 billion to all district councils, each of the 35 councils getting K183m for on spot immediate development projects.

Kachale: The process is long

Mulanje Bale MP Victor Musowa thanked the government for disbursing the money even in areas held by the opposition.

The MPs in parliament agreed that their respective councils have received the district development fund cheque.

Zomba district council director of planning Walter Chikuni confirmed the old capital city has finally received the money saying it will be shared equally among its nine area development zones.

MP for Zomba Malosa Roy Kachale Banda said the process to access the fund is very long and ambigous.

Action Hope Malawi executive director Sammy Aaron said the government has not put in place strict measures to avoid abuse by council officials.

He also said the guide lines empowers an MP to choose development projects rather than development committees.

The main issue is the opposition has benefited from the K4 billion despite pretending that they were opposing. CSOs should be ashamed.

Concerned citizen

If you have no clue as to how to develop our beloved country, leave it to someone who does.

Please love our country.


Kikikikiki what? You mean even Chakwera, Harry Mkandawire have got the money? This is the reason I cannot take MCP as serious opposition or a party that is trying to take power of the nation. There is no seriousness in this party. It cannot be trusted. You agreeed in parliament, yet outside you changed tuneand went for demo to buy sympathy and now you have the money. Where is Mkaka the noise maker, why can’t he come out in the open and tell us if MCP has refused. Cheap politics.

Gule Wamkulu

Will those that went to street and do demos against this money going to benefit?……Hypocrites


Tatopa ndi Kongolesi
Tatopa ndi Kongolesi
Tatopa ndi Kongolesi

It’s 2018 and tidakali otopa ndi Kongolesi


Mapwiya wamangilira mphaka belu. Can the opposition can’t refuse to receive money? Of course, not. DPP woyeee!

Dipipi wa Yudiefu

If this DPP government is arrogant (can not listen) now in their first term, what will happen if they get into the second term?

concerned citizen

After all the voices that expressed concern against this funding, you have gone ahead with it.
A listening government indeed !!


The people voted for the funds through their representatives (MPs). The concerned people you are talking about are a few confused CSO activists and hypocrite-in-chief: Chakwera.


MCP ndi DPP zasimikizika kuti pano ndalama zinja mwabadi


What project can one complete with K20.7 million other than kungoba. This is an insult on Malawians intelligence. Given that the next 5 years will be Peter’s last, these hooligans will loot like there’s no tomorrow; they will have nothing to lose especially with Chaponda as VP.


They will be held accountable. In fact, in 2019 all those who are stealing will be locked up
