The committee’s chairperson who is also member of Parliament for Karonga South, Uchizi Mkandawire reacted to the development on Friday after NRF disclosed that it will implement the toll gate fee on the 1st of September, 2021.
According to Mkandawire, the Constitution allows NRF to publish the fee after consultation with his committee.

NRF officials are yet issue a comment on the matter.
The rates, according to published specifications range from 1 700 Kwacha for small cars and 20 000 Kwacha for abnormal truck vehicles.
