M’mbelwa V accuses govt of abandoning development projects in North Malawi

A powerful Ngoni chief Inkosi ya Makhosi M’mbelwa V  has accused the dEMOCRatic Progressive Party (DPP) led government of abandoning development projects in the north.

State Vice President Chimulirenji with Inkosi Mbelwa V (C) attending the 2019 Mzimba Heritage Association Mothers Day Celebrations at Edingeni Headquarters, Mzimba district.

The Ngoni Paramount Chief  said this on Tuesday during a Mothers’ Day cultural event at Edingeni in Mzimba.

“The government needs to find money to resume these peojects because opponents and critics say this DPP-led government is not serious enough to develop the northern region,” said Mmbelwa.

State vice-president Everton Chimulirenji, who was in attendance, listened attentively as the chief pleaded with the government to resume the stalled development projects.

Some of the stalled projects in the north include the construction of Mombera University in Mzimba where a contractor has abandoned the project due to government’s failure to pay the Chinese contractor.

Others development projects stalled include construction of Chakazi and Mnjiri bridges which have been abandoned due to the same problems of non payment of money to contractors.

Thank you Mberwa for your straight forward appeal to the government of Peter Mathanyula for his hatred of the Northerners who are also the people of Malawi who also pay taxes to the same government.For your conduct of hating Northern Malawians,who have never hated fellow Malawians since independence some 50 years ago,we Malawians abroad,condemn you for acts of deviding tribes and rule them later.We strongly oppose you of breaking our sweet Malawi into tribalistically boundaries.What is your aim guile? What you must know is that check your leadership trends for one day things won’t be the same.Northerners are citizens of… Read more »

Frankly speaking, anthu aku north ndi omwe akulamula dziko lino, enawa angokhala kutsogolo chabe, m`maofesimu, mabwana ambiri ndi aku North, and timabungwe tambiri mabwana ndi akuno ku North ndiye osamangolubwalubwa kuti north is dead ayi. ngati office ili ndi 10 upeza kuti 8 are from North anf they are heading big positions, osesa ndiye inu ochewa ozanga, tisalimbane nawo awa anachenjera kale ife tikupha mwewa ndi abwamphini, pano tazindikira kukoma kwa xul tayamba kunyoza kuti North is dead ayi, North is more ACTIVE.

The only way we can have equitable wealthy distribution especially in infrastructure is through federalism.We are yet to have a northern president but this does not mean development should stall. University alone is not enough; half of students in all universities across the land are from the North- check statistics from DMI, Mzuni,PLU, Luanar, Poly etc. Where will the graduate from Mombela go afterwards ? LL and Bt obvious. Northen emupizi must wake up from their slumber chifukwa kunena kwa ndithe ndithe tili kutali ndi chitukuko.

I totally agree with you. If each region retains part of taxes that are generated in that region plus being given part funding to the region, then am sure with intelligent planning that is there in the north, a lot of development projects cant stall. There is very little corruption in the north and am sure once projects start they would be completed on time.

You are probably showing how stupid you are, Chipofya will not take government projects, we pay taxes together and they must be shared equcsly if you think just because your tipex leader is ruling and he is government that is where you are maroon. OK tell your stupid clueless tipex blue president to stop collecting taxes in the north and Centre and stop government projects we shall shut up and leave you guys alone. but if not this is just the beginning.

Its unfair to always accuse govt of marginalising the Northern Region. Much as govt has a social responsibility to share developments all over the country still it has to balance that with the areas population and economy. The Northern Region has only 13% of the national population and I very much doubt if to produces more than 13% of our GDP so you want it to get 33.3% of the national cake? Is it fair. The southern region you always are jelousy of is the mother region (colonialist settler region) and economic hub of this country (all none of DPP… Read more »

That is stupid thinking

So you mean 13% are not people? then why start the projects and abandon them? By the way the infrastructure is not going to be used by the people from the north only but its for the country. This thinking is what makes people from the north believe they are not Malawian enough and will be better off if the region seceded from this shithole country

Recently the US government donated some 200 schools and the president said 7 per district. If you do your analysis you will find that the largest beneficiary based on population is the North. With the Centre and South taking a beating. Koma on this they keep quiet.

Amweme kuganizako ndikopepera. Even if you claim the noth to represent 13% of the population ndizako zimenezo. Here the chief is just reminding gorvernment kuti amalize zimene anaziyamba. 2 when you talk about the countries economy, ukulakwitsa. Just want to school you that the noth holds the 80% of the Malawi’s economy

Chambatu. 80% of the economy how. Tobacco is Malawi largest earner, then tea. So exactly where does the North fit in poti this is the Centre and south mziii

What about the Center and wait a minute did you just say economic hub, what the hell in Malawi do the southern region produce that is worth naming? I may say that it is good for production of babies only to abuse the population will it be wrong? Currently we are over 18.5 million people many thanks to the people from the South, more people than in Zambia which is 10 times bigger than Malawi. Is having a high population being economic hub?

The southern region can survive on its own because it has almost all industries apart from tobacco processing plants. The following industries: electricity generation, sugar, beer, tea, tourism (mangochi), fish (maldeco), ethanol, cement, banking, telecoms, etc are all largely based in the south.
In fact Lilongwe and Mzuzu have developed out of the taxes from southern region.

All planks( mathabwa) u put on your houses are from the North , Wovwe hydro power in the North , Chombe Tea in nkhata bay is in the South? Coal (Malacha) u need in your so called industrial are from Rumphi is in the South? North can survive and it has great beaches with Whitesand no wonder Lake of Stars stick to the North.

You are right buddy. even the power generation houses in the South get water from Lake Malawi with the North having 70% of the lake.

What if we divert the outlet? or Create dams on each and every river that feeds the lake? The water level will go down. Umbuli anthu inu
