Founded last week, the site becomes the first initiative of its kind by a Malawian politician.

Lunguzi, who is also parliamentarian for Dedza East, the website will, among others, help development partners, the general public and volunteers to “know institutions, CBOs and NGOs with which they can partner to develop the area.”

The lawmaker said she decided to establish the trust “in order to divorce politics from development” whose distinction many do no appreciate in the country.

She said: “The experience I have gathered from the first semester of my life as a Member of Parliament (MP) is that people find it difficult to separate the role of the MP as a politician against the role of the same MP as a person from whom constituents expect ‘development.’”

The Trust, Lunguzi added, will be 100 per cent development focused with zero attention on politics so that the lives of the people of Dedza East, “for whom politics means nothing” are uplifted.

“Created with user experience firmly in mind, the website has been designed using the latest technology and is compatible with today’s browsers and mobile devices. All pages, articles and forums are linked to social media for easy sharing,” Lunguzi stated.

The youth also have a special platform on the site, Youth Forum, on which they can share and discuss their ideas.

“On that portal, they can register and exchange ideas, ask questions and get answers on any topics or subject, from their fellow youths,” explained the statement.

The organization was certified as a Trust (TR /INC 6344) in accordance with Laws of Malawi Cap 5:03 by the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs on February 26, 2015.

This is a great creative idea by our MP from Dedza East Constituency. The website will help to change peoples mindset about politics in Malawi. Politics is a development tool rather than a tool of enriching oneself.Let other MPS learn from her creative development thinking.


commendable job! No wonder u r the most beautiful female MP, both inside and outside.




A very good idea, ahead of malawi time. That’s genuine cause to develop ur constituency. The rest of the MPs busy to enriching themselves until close to elections time then build fake bridges to blindfold villagers. We need to sell ur idea to other MPs


Great idea. Proud to have such an MP

Another great initiative by the rookie MP, however this trust much it is intended for development partners is for people of Dedza East constituency, how many of those people are literate enough to understand the issue in English? I hope the site can also have chichewa so that it reaches a wider audience in her constituency. Otherwise this is a welcome development


Most people are literate just look in her constituency there is 1;Ntakataka police collage,2;police airwing,3;police station,4;Mua hospital,5;parish 6;school of deaf 7;kungoni centre 8;Ntakataka secondary school,9;Admarc 10 mankhamba parish and health cenre 10,mankhamba cdss 11;can’t mention everything but her constituency is more developed in education,health,agriculture and security.this project will help
