Mutharika says Nsanje Port project on course, ready in 2 years

President Peter Mutharika has said the Nsanje Inland Port – one of the flagship projects in the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) 2014 manifesto—will become functional in the next two years.

Mutharika revives talk on Nsanje World Inland Port
Mutharika said  on Thursday in Nsanje during after the ground breaking ceremony of Nsanje–Marka Road.
President Mutharika said that he will fulfill his late brother Bingu Wa Mutharika’s vision by making sure that the inland port, which has already cost the taxpayer billions of kwacha, is completed.
“Every community deserves better developments such as good roads. Let me also say that  regardless of how long it will take, Nsanje inland port will be realized. There were some  technical challenges but I promise that in the next two years, the dream will be realized. It was a  vision of my brother and it will remain my vision too,” said Mutharika attracting ululation and great applause.
Currently, the Nsanje Port is a swampy fishing ground for locals. It is a neglected site depicting an abandoned dockyard with the Shire River choked by weeds.
Mutharika said the DPP government has started developing the Lower Shire by constructing roads like the Bangula-Nsanje and Nsanje-Marka Roads among others.
“No previous government can claim that they constructed the tarmac road in the lower shire  apart from the DPP government. Today, we have launched the construction of the remaining  part of M1 Road, which is Nsanje–Marka road,” he said.
Mutharika promised to construct secondary schools and community technical colleges in the district.
“Apart from constructing five secondary schools, one in each constituency, I will also construct  health facilities, state of the art stadium, technical college in each constituency and will also drill  new boreholes. So, for those developments to happen, you need to vote wisely come May 21,”  urged Mutharika.

The DPP has three main rivals in this election—Malawi Congress Party (MCP), which is in alliance with former president Joyce Banda’s People’s Party (PP) and Freedom Party (PP), Vice-President Saulos Chilima’s UTM and the United Democratic Front which has Minister of Health Atupele Muluzi as its torchbearer.

In 2014, DPP made a 36.4 percent surprise presidential votes win from the opposition, beating incumbent president Joyce Banda whose People’s Party (PP) came third. MCP came second, with a difference of about 400 000 votes.

Nashil Pichen Kazembe in 1980 sang a song “Unkhalamba Simatenda”. Koma ndi matenda. Malemu Pulofesa ground breaking pano? Bakili Muluzi used to bring trucks of maize and later withdrew them. This old thief is moving with tractors and other equipment to deceive people. The ex-convict in America thinks the Nsanje people are fools. Bingu said Nsanje would be a city. Is it a city? Please don’t take Nsanje people for a ride. Boot out this thug who came with cadets to beat you up. The Malemu Pulofesa Arthur Peter Mutharika mwakula to lie. Kapumeni.

I don’t know why is MEC headquarters based in BT and yet MEC officials are always on field in LL where almost all of their stakeholders are based. Kufuna kudya ma allowances kumeneko ? MEC must simply relocate to LL and save our taxes from dyera la ma allowances la MEC officials.

It’s funny how your honorable late brother’s dream gets the recognition to be continued during your panic moment. Inu Nde sitikuvotelani. Mwabetsa madala. The money stolen by the DPP through corruption itself can fund this entire project with surplus left…
