Member of Parliament for Mangochi West, Geoffrey Meleka Chiwondo has urged his constituents to support government in its development programmes.
Chiwondo made the call at Mvumba Primary School ground in the area of Traditional Authority Nankumba in Mangochi on Sunday during a public meeting.
The legislator said with help from the ruling government, the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), bridges, hospitals and roads have been constructed in the area of T/A Nankumba.
Chiwondo urged people in the area to rally behind government in its efforts to fulfill most of its development programmes by among others ensuring that they participate in community driven development projects.
“Even though there are many challenges affecting people in the area of T/A Nankumba all problems cannot be solved at once which is why government is first dealing with major problems besetting the country,” said Chiwondo.
Traditional Authority Nankumba said the construction of bridges and grading of roads has lessened some mobility challenges in his area.
However, T/A Nankumba asked government to consider speeding up the opening of ADMARC depots in order to alleviate the food shortage situation.
“Our farmers are doing their best but still agricultural production is becoming very low every year and we need government to help as many people in our villages depend on agriculture,” said Nankumba.
