Mzuzu residents hail Strabag construction firm over road standard

Some residents of Mzuzu City have hailed Strabag Construction Company for the quality work the firm has done in rehabilitating and expanding  the Orton Chirwa Avenue.

Speaking in random interviews, the residents said even though construction works are underway, the work done so far has been impressive.

“Just by looking at the segment from Shoprite to Clocktower roundabout where extension works are underway, one can tell that the road is not substandard,” said one Peter Kamanga, a resident of Chasefu Township who owns a boutique in the city.

Another resident, Grace Ndau, who plies her trade at Taifa Market, concurred with Kamanga’s observation.

She said the standard of the road under construction is different from roads constructed by other companies in previous years, which she said already have defects.

“To be honest, this road by Strabag though not complete, is a complete opposite of the roads constructed recently within Mzuzu,” she said.

But George Gama, a resident of Hill Top, said it was not too late for Mzuzu City Council and government to construct better roads in the city.

“It is a good thing that high standards by Strabag are bringing to light this contrast; we hope our leaders at the council and government are seeing it as well.

“Since Mzuzu [City] is still growing, we hope they will learn to engage contractors that will do quality jobs because even if they hire cheap ones, they still spend a lot on frequent maintenance works,” he said.

Look at the works done by mota engil in zambia….. it’s totally different from the ones they do in malawi. Coz of these mbavas in DPP n govt our roads are compromised yet over inflated contracts are still being awarded to mota……that’s another daylight robbery as Malawians have always been taken for granted by these Heartless Thieves.

We as a Nation as well as entrepreneurs and indeed our leaders can only learn from this example. Honest work pays off!
Integrity and Hardwork without compromising leads to sustainable development. Forget about lip service and promises from a political podium and in the end it is all fake or build on sand. Less corruption means better roads,…. – as easy as this!
Thank you STRABAG for your commitment!

Running Govt is not a learning process. How much longer do these thieves have to learn to do anything right for the country.

This is how roads construction are meant to be with standards and quality not the one done by mota engil who have done poor roads due to katangale with DPP thieves…… kick mota and thieving chinese companies out from malawi and take these guys who do quality and reasonably priced roads.

I concur with you, the BT Zomba road is a perfect example. The road is still under construction but it has already started developing pot holes. Even the design for rumble surfaces is very pathetic. Kudos Strabag, u deserve to construct the whole of our lakeshore road from Nkhatabay to Balaka .

I agree this is quality work by strabag. Mwina anakana kumenya ka 10% kwa anyamata a corruption. I wish all roads could have been constructed in that way

That is the quality one expects from Germany based companies. They do not compromise quality. Ask their neigbours, the Danes.

Great to know that there are at least some who appreciate (because they are some who are blind to anything good). Those guys have reduced themselves so low that their sights are damaged that they never see anything good. Am happy kuti how hard someone can attemt to brainwashing Malawians but he will never succeed to brainwash all. I think it’s true what one English man said kuti YOU CAN FOOL SOME PEOPLE SOMETIMES BUT YOU CAN NOT FOOL ALL PEOPLE ALL TIMES.
Great, Mzuzu residents.
