Ngalande who is independent, in an interview with Nyasa Times on Wednesday in Lilongwe, said he intends to use the ambulances as mobile clinics.

“The ambulances have already been procured and are presently in the country for the project to roll out,” said Ngalande.

He said the initiative is coming in after he noticed that ordinary people in Balaka district trek long distance to access quality health care.

The legislator added that his passion  is to transform lives of the people in the area, a thing which he said he has already  started implementing.

He said when he was elected MP for the area, people faced various challenges such as poor roads and bridges.

So far, he said, he has completed some notable projects in his drive to develop his area.

He cited an examples of Toreza Kabango bridge which connects to Matola Village  and  Missu bridge which connects to Chinkwita Village.

Currently, he said his target is to upgrade the Balaka to Mbela road. Apart from that, he said, construction work is already underway for the Kachenga Bridge.

On water and sanitation Ngalande said currently 11 boreholes have been drilled, but he said the target is to drill 100.

He said: “During my campaign I promised to initiate provision of safe drinking water and this is exactly what I am doing.”

On youth empowerment, he said so far the area has already benefited from the technical colleges which are being implemented across the country.

“The community college  in the constituency was built by government  and we commend government  for the college which will improve  the lives of the youth in my constituency,” he said.
