Cisanet welcomes construction of Bwanje Dam


Executive Director for Civil Society Agriculture Network (Cisanet), Tamani Nkhono-Mvula, says the construction of a new dam in Ntcheu will help deal with food challenges in the country.

The 42 metre dam is expected to be constructed with assistance from the European Union (EU) and will be built at Bwanje in Ntheu to boost the Bwanje Irrigation Scheme.

Development is welcome. Mvula.

Nkhono-Mvula however said that competent irrigation scheme management will be crucial in ensuring that Bwanje Irrigation Scheme produces at its full potential. He said the irrigation scheme is currently being managed by a community which is not competent enough.

“The way to go is to come up with a model which would rope in the private sector to partner with the community in managing the scheme which would also help in marketing the produce like Ntalimanja Holdings partnership which is partnering with the community in Nkhotakota and has been a success,” said Nkhoono-Mvula.

Minister of Agriculture and Food Security Alllan Chiyembekeza told the media that construction of the dam will start this year but could not reveal the cost of the project.

The dam will complement the 800 hectare Bwanje Irrigation Scheme funded by the Japanese Government through Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

The dam will have a total storage of 5.6 million cubic metres of water.




  1. not enough info. There are two bwanje schemes which go by the same name, one in ncheu on bwanje river, and the other in dz on namkokwe river(mua). Most officials fail to differenciate between the two. The most productive is the one in dz and is run by a corperative. The article is incoclusive.

  5. let me first and foremost ask,anybody with the information pertaining to the said dam, is it under construction or its just an idea,if its an idea from somebody am not in agree with it, many just comes in with talks like that and yet for sure you that those ideas have to be scrutinized by top officials. think of bangwe dam.chimwankhunda. good ideas use them during campaign in 2018,,its a welcomed idea.
