Malawi govt in need! K200 Million required for Salima stadium

43

The Malawi Government will have to cough up to K200 Million to finalize the Salima Stadium project, officials have indicated.

This has been disclosed by Salima Director of Public Works Sydney Chiphaka who recently inspected the completed construction of the brick fence.

According to Chphaka,  the completion of the fence is not the end of the project.

“We have finished the first phase which cost us about K47 million and the next phase is to construct a VIP stand, dressing room and toilets which will take us through another year or two. To finish the two phases we need to raise up to K200 million,” said Chiphaka. He added, “The main challenge we have is that the council cannot generate enough funds for the stadium within a year alone and we need to get funds from other development projects to accomplish this project.” he told the Malawi News Agency.

On the impact of the stadium, Chiphaka said it will help generate funds for the development of the district from gate collections of matches played in Salima.

However, Felix Jumbe, Salima Central Parliamentarian said the work progress of the community ground has been impressive and it will not only benefit people from Salima Central, but the whole Salima and other districts.

“What we have been looking for is to have a stadium, but in the interim we thought we should have a community ground that is well fenced, able to generate money and will be a source of funding to the council,” he said.

Jumbe admitted that the funds were not enough and they had to fundraise other than using Local Development Fund.

The stadium complex which was started last year will be fully completed by 2020. The district council Chairperson Peter Kadam’manja asked the committee overseeing the project to stick to its time frame.

  6. I have seen the project and i was even happy but why all these years up to now where were these so called Mps just coming during the campaign,and i was in mangochi the the same project is doing well why because people there have passion for the game.Loook if u were serioud about bulding a stadium in salima you could have chosen the neutral ground not the confined area of yours u called stadium take a good example of mangochi please wake up salima.I dont like this idea of turning a community ground into stadium choose a place and erect a stadium not what you have done again the fence which you are talking is at low level easy for peple to jump over.and you are asking government to fork all that money for that joke of yours be serious where do you think are u going to buid what you said the area is too small am speechless malawians Councils,Mps,Politicians fond of short cut do a thorough research nicely where to build what you want u have nice place in salima at kaphatenga avast area but nobody thought about that and what is in your mind is money as your priority ooops sorry malawi full of individual weathy accumulation
