Mutharika tells North Malawi more developments in the offing: Mzuzu International Airport project starts January  2018

President Arthur Peter Mutharika has assured people in northern region that his government is geared to start the construction of Mzuzu International Airport in January, 2018.

Mutharika: To develop North Malawi

President Mutharika was speaking Saturday evening at Katoto Roundabout on his arrival in the region where he is expected to carry out a number of official duties.

Mutharika said it is the wish of his government that Mzuzu City should have a modern international airport, saying it will open up the northern region.

“I have directed the Minister of Transport and Public Works to make sure that the construction of Mzuzu modern international airport should start without any excuses by January next year,” he said.

In July this year, President Mutharika visited Lusangazi where the airport will be constructed to the tune of U$20 million (approximately K14.6 billion) from Exim Bank of China.

On the construction of Mombela University in Mzimba District, President Mutharika said he was happy that ground work has started.

“We have a number of development programmes here in the North and I’m happy that some of them such as Nkhata Bay–Mzuzu Road is about to be completed.

“I will make sure that I go there and see it [the road] before going back to Lilongwe; and, from there, I will announce another good news for the people of the North,” he said.

The President also said the government will renovate Mzuzu University Library that was gutted by fire a few years ago.

Apart from Katoto Roundabout in Mzuzu, President Mutharika also spoke to people who gathered at Mponela in Dowa and at Jenda in Mzimba.

Campaign yayambika!!! What is the use of a modern airport when people live on less than adollar a day? When they can’t afford the next meal, when hospitals have no medications, when they have erratic electricity, when the President is clueless, we don’t need a fancy airport, give us our basic needs first !!!

Uyu ndi mtesi,pathological liar,i just don’t know what to believe .

Whatever you think of him but APM has great plans fo this Nation and because you are disrespecting him as a chosen leader of this Nation then just wait and see what God will do for him – 2019 is coming – ask me if you are capable of competing with God. Bringing shame to a leader that was cjosen by God is the same as being arrogant to God himself – God is God and he is never mocked – the Bible tells us to give respect to our Leaders because they are chosen by God himself, now quote… Read more »

How promises your brother and u have made tog Northerners? 5 universities were going tog be built said Bingu. How many so far? I have not forgotten What u said No Tonga will be a president ” I will be stupid to vote for u. Bingu said Northerners votes did not make different. Northerners May be stupid but not fools. In 2014 elections Northerners voted for PP. But elections were riggid. No Likoma/Chizumulu voted for DDP but it was lied that they voted for DDP. Actualy boxes were slown in the lake. My vote is MCP.
