MP asks govt to name Area 18 interchange after Peter Mutharika

Member of Parliament for Blantyre North, Francis Phiso has asked Minister of Transport Sidik Mia to name the Area 18 interchange after immediate former president Peter Mutharika.

Area 18 interchange

Phiso, a member of the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), argued that he K7.6 billion Area 18 Traffic Interchange in Lilongwe was project initiated and championed by Mutharika.

He said it was “right and proper” to name the  Area 18 Traffic Interchange after Mutharika.

Mia responded by saying it is not his mandate to name the interchange and that it is the President’s prerogative to name it whatever he wishes.

The Area 18 Cloverleaf Traffic Interchange is located at the site of the then Area 18 Roundabout. It boasts an upper road from Parliament Roundabout to Bingu National Stadium which was upgraded to dual carriageway.

The underpass also has a dual carriage on the M1 and is expected to be later connected to the planned Kanengo to Mchinji Roundabout dual carriageway.

This boy who says Nkhata Bay road project was initiated by JB is a liar. Area 18 should indeed be named after Peter Muntharika. It’s the first of its kind and the last. No any Malawi president will come with another such road. The Muntharika brother’s really loved this country and Lilongwe city in particular.

PLEASE DO NOT NAME IT AFTER PETER, he himself named the Nkhatabay road after himself, yet the project was initiated by JOYCE BANDA. If anything just name it after yourself Dr Chakwera, naye amve kuwawa
