Government has come out handy explaining detailed account of its projects in the northern region following vocal criticisms from some MPs from the region.
Leader of the House Francis Kasaila has explained that the government has over a dozen developments in the region, some of them Chinese funded.
He said projects include the Njakhwa road, the Mzuzu Nkhata Bay road, Misuku road, the multibillion Nkhata Bay hospital and the Chinese funded youth centre in Mzuzu.
“Government development projects are national not regional and government does not look at politics or anything when awarding development projects,” said Kasaila.
He said it would have been irrational to award another Chinese funded road to the north after the magnificent Karonga Chitipa road, saying this is why a Chinese funded road has gone to Makanjira road in Mangochi.
Kasaila said the north enjoys many national projects including the National ID project and the power transmission project among others.
He said government does not use politics or religion as criteria for awarding developments.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
