Bingu’s dreams in the dark: Malawi to meet Mozambique over Nsanje port this month

Nsanje World Inland port

Malawi meets neighbors Mozambique over this project.

The Malawian minister of transport and public works Mallison Ndau is this month expected to meet his Mozambican counterpart to discuss the way forward on the Nsanje Port project.

The Nsanje Port has stalled for years but Ndau says the port will now be completed after a feasibility study showed that the project is viable and profitable to the whole SADC region.

According to Ndau, the meeting also follows commitment by both the Mozambican government and the Common Market for East and Southern Africa (Comesa) to have the port completed.

Malison Ndau reveals of the meeting.

“We have been having discussions with our counterparts in Mozambique over the Nsanje port which has been uncompleted for years now because the Mozambican government was not in favour of the development.”

“Now there have been very good development as the state president, Peter Mutharika, earlier this year met the Mozambican president on the matter and the other exciting thing is that Sadc and Comesa have shown interest to have the port completed,” said Ndau.

He assured all Malawians that contrary to what other people have been thinking and saying, the port will start functioning soon and he added that the port is a viable development in the SADC region.

The port remained one of the dreams late Malawi President Bingu wa Mutharika kept saying needs to come true to help Malawi’s economy.

  • Tizingowetapo nsomba basi

  • Who is the loser? Is it not us who are living? That port is for us Malawians not the late Bingu(may his soul rest in peace at Ndata farm). Learn to be patriotic, there is no sense of patriotism in your reporting. If you dont know there is a thick line between national development and political development. We may not progress with this type of reporting. I am only a concerned citizen, mark my words! CONCERNED I aM.

  • Ine ndikanakonda kuti pasakhale kukambirana kulikonse pa nkhaniyi koma boma la Mozambique lichotse njanji yao ija azipita nayo kwao. Anthu amenewo anatipanga chipongwe kwambiri and I dont see any good reason why giving them a permision kumanga njanji kudutsa mdziko lathu. Zinandiwawa bwanji! If I were Peter Mutharika, I could not have accepted that, unless that Nsanje project is done, then I would accept it.

  • u Malawians u don’t know how thingz work so its better to stay Quite if u see that ur mind is nothing

  • Even Suez Canal went through turbulent negotiations and encounters before it was lastly finished. Nsanje port will one day see the light, this is a project every Malawian should yearn to see started. If you have trouble with it and you are a Malawian then you are a stupid lot but if you have trouble with it but you are a Tanzanian, South African or Mozambican you are a normal person and I understand you quite well, I’m only sorry for you because our time has come.

  • THE EVOLUTION OF THE TPLF: FROM THE SHAME OF AFRICA TO THE ANUS OF ETHIOPIA – IT’S FINISHED
    ====================================================

    Nothing forcibly strikes than the faces of TPLF officials – faces imbued with guilt and the haunting reality of an imminent coup, that CAN no longer be soothed by the hyperbolic gestures of the dreaded security apparatus nor by anxieties of the West.

    That coupled with a mishmash of Foreign Policy designed to function side-by-side with an exaggerated sense of “nation-hood” on mythical proportions, yet always teetering towards ethnographic revisionism (i.e. by in large dominating the psyche of the past and present vacuous regimes of Ethiopia), could only serve as a tandem of negative mutations.

    To grasp the totality of the layered and structured violence in today’s IMPLODING ETHIOPIA, one must go back to its early inception as an artificially glued and lumped together “nation” through population harvesting (predominantly with Yemenis), and thereby advancing with a logical disorder that asserts Perpetual WARFARE of the Within.

    That implies, if we collapse the two syntax into one premise (i.e. seeking glorification vs. pursuing a syllabus rendered with revisionism, so as to distort the origins of a socio-political sectarianism), something that pervades across the entire landscape of this country, then don’t be surprised to see many ethnic stocks taking arms and refusing to be sucked into the “Abyssinian” myth, and according to European scholars, this term “AITHIOPIA” coined from GREEK NEW TESTAMENT around 1600 AD, only beguiles with a self-negation to the nth degree, and it basically refers to black people (AITHO = burn and OPS = face), and you can be forgiven of thinking “Abyssinians” as friends of Black people, historians have documented it very well, in stating [you cannot make menelik to be proud of his blackness. Menelik dismissed it in public, and he told the whole world that he is Caucasian, not black], please refer to Menelik’s circular letter.

    In the same manner that hunger and starvation of the innocent civilians paid a price for and continue to do so (EVEN TODAY) at the behest of the AID’S-ABABA’s Successive corrosive regimes, and neither should it be unappetizing the cronies of the TPLF), asking vaingloriously European investors to emphasize falsity above the truth (i.e. see the world through the lens of us), then the seismic eruptions spilling over to your TV screens is indeed an opportunity to demand the relocation of the African Union Seat from the site of mass grave of innocent Oromo Civilians and Amhara, where African leaders meet at various levels year-around, without the least obituary for those fellow African Victims.

    Far from cherishing the facts on the ground, Ethiopia’s regimes (including this one, the remnants of the late poisoned Zenawi, apparently by his wife), did always resort to social order that at best favors family cartels linked to the organs of the state, and at worst cheats to accumulate wealth, thus the romanticism of “appealing to the world, while in the midst of a volatile region”, scapegoating tactics that breeds into the production of an unnatural TPLF entrepreneurs, thriving on belated, conspicuous improbable possibilities – taking democracy less seriously, ONLY TO conjure parodic executive authority that overrides institutions and still wishes to secure “real change”, is thereby a romantic impulse that must be dislodged by force.
