Mzuzu Mayor William Mkandawire has pledged to repair some of the roads that were damaged during last week’s floods in the city.
Mkandawire made the pledge when he addressed people who were affected by the floods.
Several roads have been deemed impassable in the city as some are now covered by mounds of mud while others are filled with potholes.
But in his remarks, Mkandawire said the Mzuzu City Council will repair the roads in two weeks’ time to provide easy movement for residents.
He said government is trying its best to curb the problem that has affected parts of the city.
The floods in Mzuzu also led to the death of eight people.
In several townships in the city houses collapsed and thousands of people were left homeless.
Government officials have since visited the flood victims and last week President Peter Mutharika called on people in the country to help the victims.
