George-Chaponda

Chaponda commends the support.

The Emergency Recovery Project is an initiative which aims at helping over 25, 000 farmers in 15 districts recover from the floods which hit the country early last year.

Minister of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development George Chaponda disclosed this when he was launching treadle pumps distribution exercise at Sande in Chikhwawa.

In his remarks, Chaponda said government has already purchased 4,460 modern treadle pumps to be distributed in the affected districts as one way of enabling the farmers recover from their losses.

President Peter Mutharika declared the 15 districts of Blantyre, Nsanje, Chikwawa, Phalombe, Mulanje, Zomba and Thyolo, among other areas of disaster following the floods that saw at least 176 people being killed and about 200,000 more displaced.

The declaration followed the president’s wish for humanitarian assistance from well-wishers as well as development partners and other countries.

  1. Why do i smell another cashgate? Donors, why do you keep on giving to gvt theives? If you want to assist Malawi do it directly to Malawians by bringing food to the people, constructing roads, hospitals and schools then hand them over. Otherwise giving these theives huge sums of money like that wont develop Malawi.

  2. My fellow Malawians God spoke to me about the month of June that He(God)is going to liberate our land. God Almighty Himself is Going to do what no man has ever seen. Glory be to Him. Tipemphere kuti izi zipitilire

  3. The donors are promoting corruption because they are donating to people who are already corrupted and government official criminals, mbava zokhazokha zili muboma and we Malawians we keep voting and give them proper support, we have to look into that please otherwise they will keep down Gladding Malawi into zero banana republic.
