The bridge being constructed on Mwanza River will become Malawi’s longest when completed at least by the end of this year, according to the contractor, Plem Construction Company.

Construction of roads and bridges has remained one of the major priorities for the Democratic Progressive (DPP) – led government such that several projects are taking shape across the country.

Speaking recently when he inaugurated a bridge in the area of Traditional Authority Kuntaja in Blantyre, Minister of Transport and Public Works, Jappie Mhango said infrastructural development remained government’s priority.

“Government knows that roads facilitate different socio – economic activities at every level as such we will make sure that all corners of the country are connected and accessible through construction of better roads,” Mhango said.

Apart from the Chapananga Bridge, government is also constructing the Liwonde – Mangochi Road, Lirangwe – Chingale – Machinga Road and the Tsangano – Neno Road in the Southern Region, alone.

Please note that dpp and APM steal money through such projects. They are using unscrupulous contractors like Mota Engil, Plem, Pioneer Investments and Master Construction to steal money. Dpp thugs.

This is a very GOOD Development! But I can see that there is NO SAFETY enforcement to employees working on this construction site. Rigging Crew/Steel Fixers/Erectors with NO Hard Hats, NO Working Gloves, NO Eye Protection Goggles, NO High Visibility Vests etc…. For those with access to this construction site, please advise the Construction Site Safety Officers to enforce safety standards on this site and many other sites….. I feel if I could help these construction workers, but am far away. There is NO COMPROMISE on SAFETY! Pleaseeee!

Education is indeed key to success, how can a whole grown up person fail to differentiate tax payers money project and party project. You mean in this age someone still struggles to understand that its the role of government to build bridges and roads. Had it been that DPP is not corrupt this bridge would have been completed by now.
