MCP promises Chitipa-Tanzania ‘pothole proof’ tarmac road

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has promised people in Chitipa that it will construct a tarmacked road from the district T-junction to Tunduma in Tanzania once voted into power in the forthcoming 2019 general elections then apply a pothole-resistant coating .

Harry Mkandawire addressing an MCP meeting in Chitipa

Speaking during a political rally held on Saturday in the north constituency, in the area of Traditional Authority Mwaulambya, Group Village Headman, Mwamukumbwa the MCP second deputy president  Harry Mkandawire, said  they will  engineers given then contract  will also make the roads more resistant to vibrations and movement, meaning less damage.

 

Hre said  road will ease the transportation of farm produce to various markets in the country as the district is one of the reliable districts when it comes to farm harvest every year.

Mkandawire was answering from the request by people in the area through their ward councillor of Nkhwangwa Ward, Isaac Mwepa, who is now aspiring candidate for Parliamentary seat for Chitipa North under the same party MCP who asked for a better road as the road is currently in dilapidated state.

“It is pathetic at 54 years of independence driving in these bumpy roads where people produces high yield, with this kind of road network there are likely high chances of high cost of transportation of farm produce to the market. Vote wisely in 2019, MCP will make sure that this suffering comes to an end,” promised Mkandawire.

He  further expressed his disappointed with the road saying it is very embarrassing to the nation at large to see the bumpy and rocky road which is joining with a neighbouring country where people from these two nations exchange commodities through trade.

The dilapidated gravel road from Chitipa to Tunduma is long up to 51 Kilometres and according to information gathered from frustrated motorists, it takes about two hours to get in Tunduma, and that can be reduced up to 30 minutes if tarmacked.

For his part group headman Mwamukumbwa was so delighted with the speech by Mkandawire and he said they will be happy if MCP will leave up to its promises once voted into power as the road will also ease the movement of school going children.

He said school going children  were facing problems, especially during the rainy season, as the roads were getting muddy, making them impassable

Among others, Mkandawire also emphasised that once MCP is voted into power, government will make sure that there is equitable access to education in levels, (primary, Secondary and Tertiary) in all the regions of the country by constructing more school.

Mkandawire however urged people in the district to go and register once the registration process comes in the district starting from 8th to 21st October, 2018 for these ambitious dreams to come to life.

The same MCP indicated in parliament recently that the north does not deserve heavy investment because of its small population. Now we have Harry Mkandawire coming to us yavi-yavi-yavi with this nonsense. We are not kids.

Chakwera told Capital Radio daybreak program that he is no longer interested in parliamentary impeachment of the president due to the k145m issue he will instead do everything to impeach him at the polls in may next year.
For the first time to me he has talked sense, please continue on that path and you may get my vote.
MCP be careful ena akufuna muawoletse kenako akudyeni.

Chakwera,please leave North alone.MCP has been in power for morethan 30 years,why now the chitipa to Tnzania Rd and Chitipa to Zambia Rd? We Northerners are not there to wash somebody’s dirty ass.MCP stay with your roads,we are going to get these roads when Chilima becomes the Head of State few months from to day.What the MCP has done to us,we are not going to compromise until the end of the world.Northerners are human beings like the rest of Malawians and indeed,they fought in fore-front during the liberation struggle.Where were Chakwera and Mia on third March 1959? Where were Bingu… Read more »

You are a fool to tell you the truth.I am from North myself and most of the projects and buildings we have from North were built by MCP.Kindly can you mention the buildings or projects that were built by UDF or DPP from North?If R Msowoya is your relative that is your baby to nurse.R Msowoya expelled himself from MCP because he does not have morals and he is not principled all he likes is money hence the DPP used him to cause confusions in MCP of which he failed to achieve that.Whether MCP have an Arab that is not… Read more »

Tamuuzeni ameneyu. In this era of multi party democracy how foolish for one to think like this. Winston Msowoya is a disgrace. This is way below chicken thinking.

Nkhwele iwe, are you Northerners or you are from North? Do you know the meaning of U.T.M? When i see you , i always remember the word Educated fool! Chilima can not be a leader and he will not be unless he has formed a party. U.T.M is not a party, it is a Movement of people who are United to be Transformed after Malawi Congress Party kicks out Apumbwa onse including you from the Government and take back what belongs to Malawians. Are you aware that M.C.P is the only party that can make Malawians to enjoy in their… Read more »

Anawa akudyedwa ndi excitement not knowing that this mistake takes another 5 years to rectify it. Much UTM is looking vibrant, it has traits of DPP character. Ngati ayamba kale kukangana pano for positions when it is just a movement, what more if we put them into power? Anawa kutengeka kopusa akulankhula nako zawo zachibwana bwanaku sikuthandiza dziko not even a percent.
