The MPs visit—meant to appreciate progress of the project—coincided with over 2100 religious tourists who had travelled from different parts of the world just to appreciate the construction process of the city.
Briefing the media during a tour of the project, chairperson of the Parliamentary Committee on Industry, Trade and Tourism Honourable Simplex Chithyola Banda said the MPs are extremely shocked with the level of global curiosity for the project.
“We are shocked but at the same time reminded of the importance and magnitude of the project,” he said.
He added that the influx of people coming to the city continues to rise with each passing, noting that the development is quite encouraging.
The committees that turned up for the visit include Transport and Public Infrastructure, and Local Authorities and Rural Development.
The Deputy Clerk of Parliament was also part of the parliamentary team.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
