Malawi Government finalizes world class stadium construction in Lilongwe

331

Bingu National Stadium contractors have informed government that they have completed construction works at the magnificent stadium which is in Lilongwe.

The government of Malawi initially communicated that the deadline for construction works at the new soccer mecca is November 30th 2015 but the contractor wrote a letter to government on 28 November to inform it that they are ready to hand the stadium over to Malawi Government.

Bingu National stadium: Completed.

Minister of Youth and Culture Grace Obama Chiumia confirmed the development to the media and she also revealed that the stadium will be first handed over to Ministry of transport and public works before officially being handed over to the ministry of sports.

“It’s true the contractor finished all works and they only ask government to give them three days notice before the actual handover,” said Chiumia.

Bingu International Stadium will attract the soccer fraternity since it has 60,000 capacity, a far higher capacity than that of the old soccer cathedral, Kamuzu Stadium.

  9. it is not proper to give national structures personal names. It does not matter who signed or what because it is their duty to bring developments in a country. so giving personal names to national structures as if its their investment or business.Should we assume president aliyense wobwera adzitcha dzina lake chinthu chomwe wapanga? it doesn’t make sense!

  10. Ulemu wanu mai JB pobweretsa stadium kuno ku Lilongwe, mudaonetsa kuzindikira kwanu,paja adafuna ipite ku Ndata.Dzina achotse aike lina,bolaso akadati J B Stadium chifukwa adagwira ntchito yabwino.

  17. No gvt structure’s to be named after an individual…that’s my take…its the MW citizens who will be paying for that stadium. Straight from their pockets…..HKB named most of the projects in his era in his favour…just to be changed by big headed Muluzi…So if the nx leader will not agree to whatever it will be called now..she / he is going to change it too….stop confusing people…Let parliament decide…how many things does DPP want to be named after Bingu…hey..?

  18. bingu initiative..even if chakwera will be a presdent and ask donors to build a museum and name it chakwera museum tilibe pulobulemu,,,,this was one of bingus master class developments!!whether Chinese or who so ever !!! don’t hate the player!hate the game! Amayi had all the resources, support and everything…but she failed to build even a hospital in her village,she was busy with cows!

  20. Mmmmmmmm Mmmmmmm too much boring comments rolling out.
    World class? Mmmmmmm
    Bingu stadium? mmmmmmm
    Thumbs up to Chinese government .laponda la mphawi.

  21. Kodi zomapereka maina awanthu pazinthu zotukula dziko zilipobe,suja munasintha kamuzu central hosp kukhala lilongwe central.tsono chadza ndiyaninso chotinso bingu stadium?lf its a world class structure y not give it a simple,specific,reasonable sportive name than malabishiwo.koma kunyasalande sikudzathekaso,kwenikweni vuto ndichani amalawife.nanu alilongwe city council kuvomera?

  22. Boma liitane Brazil ndi Argentina azasewere tsiku lotsegulira. Saizi yathu ife mpa Civo, Namkhaka ndi Kamuzu stadium. Malo ovemchera alipo, nanga ngalande zilipo zoti tizikafikira ku ma stand zilipo?

  23. guyz amene akuti that stadium imayenera kukhala ndi dzina lina than bingu kwa ine if i may ask who sighned the deal of constructing the stadium? let me also assure you one thing joyce was just following the foot steps of bingu because bingu had already signed in agreement with china just like zomwe peter amazupopa peter zoti wabwereka ndalama from if you dont those things were agreed when joyce banda was in office of president penapake osamangolalata ndipo dzina loti bingu sounds much better

  24. As we ar celebrating the completion of this magnificent bingu stadium, lets not 4get 2observe a minute of silence for those who lost their lives while on duty constructing this stadium i understand 3people died when they fall from the top R I P

  25. in my own school of thought I think it would have been better to give the stadium a proper name than a name of a person despite who made the plans of it to be built n who acted on the plan n turn it in reality. tikavula magalas andale kod sitingayitchule stadiumyi kut national stadium or even Lilongwe stadium amene than dzina lamunthu? I think zimenez zingapangitse kut malo adziko lanthu lino I.e lilongwe atchuke world wide than kutchukitsa dzina lamunthu and at the end zidzalowa mitundu from ndale kut stadiumyi ndiya alomwe ndepopewa zonse izi tipange ka referendum kut tipeze dzina labwino la stadium yi. nanga bas chili chose kumalawi kuno chidzikhala mudzina lamunthu? kamuzu stadium,bingu stadium,ethel mutharika maternity wing etc zinthu zadziko zizikhala ndimayina adziko osat mayina a anthu tisiyanitsa bwanj chinthu cha private ndi cha public? maganizo anga amenewo

    • Maganizo abwino koma abodza… Wake up man, everywhere you go, you will see names of people who made history on magestic structures….they do it in respect

    • I said it at the very beggining kut in my own thoughts,get me right wasn’t representing your thouhgts nop so mind your language ok

    • Don’t mind these people Douglas, they’re educated blind, history is about things that have gone. we’re in modern society where modern knowledge is applied. malawi is one of folish nations that name almost every public infrastructure in somebody’s name. This is Malawi not the leader. Wake up guys And be Creative don’t driven by history.

    • chifundo these people think like their shoe sizes not age. how will we differenciate between a private property n national thing? guys wise up now….Malawi kugona

    • ajobe you talking of roads n they r of no use since u can’t get fame through road. if its so can u jst downlist any.foreign country roads u know. and concerning those given names kamuzu n the likes I already talked of it in my 1st status kut its useless. what’s thah benefit of naming something of national concern a name of a person? at the end president ali yese adzifuna atchule chili chonse dzina lake nde dzimayina dzidzangot mbweee

    • the stadium deserves the name Bingu. sizachilendo zimenezi anthu wochita zinthu zikuluzikulu timawadziwila ntchito zawo nde polemekeza kulimbikira kwawo njira yake ndi imeneyi …..mudzasiyanitsa bwanji John Tembo ndi Bingu ? this is the best way .

    • iwe kondwan zachikale zimenezo kod mesa president akakhala pampando ntchito yake ndiyotukula dziko? vuto amalawi timayamikila chinthu chot chimayenela chichitike,mesa munamusankha kut azatukule dziko nanga ndalama amatukulilazo ndiza mnthumba mwake kapena zanu amalawi? good example undipatse k1000 @ the end ndikupatse packet la sugar mkoyenela kut undiyamakile mesa ndi ndalama zako zomwe had it been mnagula ndi ndalama zanga it would v been a different issue altogother. nanga president aliyense akhale pampando akachita chinthu I.e chitukuko ndekut azichitchula dzina lake? nde kudzapezeka kut chili chonse mmalawi muno ndidzina la munthu,sinthan kaganizidwe amalawi anzanga ndi nchito yake president kutukula dziko lino nanga kapena timamusankhilanj? or else dzina likhale laku china sinanga ndamene apanga chinthucho ndi chichili chonse chawo? ganizan mofatsa makosana

  26. Some people are just fools in the making….y being so superstitious a name is just a name…zaminyama zanuzo thats in your head…..n we dont give names to a thing because one built it ….its out of honour that we name a thing after a person….respect thats all. For example South africa built stadiums for world cup and named them after some dudes…madolo amene aja sanamange those stadiums……daah think before talking…..Masauko Chipembere for example….Bingu was a genius….a hero….he left a legacy …whether one agrees o not…..Thats wat we call a self actualised person….it takes guts to get to that state…..not many of us will get there….speaking my mind…no offence if you are offended go and lick your elbow…kkkkk out. Thats y they named it after him…am not a politician but i totally support that name.. BINGU…KAMUZU….CHIPEMBERE…totally venacular language…mother tongue…Chichewa cheni cheni

  27. World class as per Malawi standards sure. This has not being constructed by Malawi government but by China, both money and labour. It is an insult to call a stadium Bingu, for what. Malawians tulo kwambiri. Lets give structures appropriate names not names of thieves, murderers, killers, dictators, swindlers. Even China called their magnificent stadium in Beijing, “Birds Nest Stadium, why don’t we call ours, Lilongwe Arena or National Arena or simply Lilongwe stadium and by so doing selling our capital city whenever an event or match takes place there Lilongwe is mentioned, not Bingu what’s that???

  28. cha China sichilimba, chikayetsetsa ndi 4 years. vuto lakenso muzikalowetsapo a kasinja, pa in dependence day ndinso kuvinirapo senderani ndi mapazi azikang’a. chitimu chake chofoiranso chosewera ngati ZiDakwa Socials. Mxieuuuuuuuiui.

  29. Thanx should go to Dr Joyce Banda poganizira kuti Stadium ikamangidwe ku Capital City ya dziko lino to the Chinese government may the good Lord Bless ur nation and the Leaders

    • Are we going to maintain it? We are failing to maintain Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre you we have balls to do it. May be China will be doing it for us

    • Tell us where Bingu got the Money to build this stadium as per your confused claim? If he did then he was foolish instead of building a hospital or bus station bola
