The opening of the Bingu National Stadium in Malawi’s capital, Lilongwe may well delay as government is considering numerous suggestions of changes
on the sports facility which will hold up to 41,100.
This has come as the Ministry of Youth Development and Sports has admited that there are a couple of changes that have been suggested by various Ministries and stakeholders on where to change the stadium.
Speaking to the media after the tour on Wednesday, Chief sports officer responsible for infrastructure in the ministry of youth development and sports Joseph Kayamba, said that government will consider adopting numerous suggestions that have been put forward by several stakeholders before the stadium actually starts being used.
“We organized this function for these officials to appreciate the features of the new stadium and at the same time for them to take note of any shortfall that may be there so that these defects could be recommended to the contractor for improvement.
“We have received several positive suggestions from the government representatives which we may wish to take into account. Some officials have highlighted on the need of re-working on the VVIP stand and improve on its current design. For example, there is need to include a canopy, space and maybe even some stairways that may lead into the field.” Said Kayamba.
