Mutharika promises a demolition of old district headquarters
It might be ambitious and beautiful dreams but the Malawi leader has said it is achievable and his government will start that path soon.
The Malawi government says it will soon start reconstructing districts’ headquarters in all districts in the country.
According to President Peter Mutharika who was speaking on Thursday at Luwelezi school ground in Mzimba district, the old structures are tired and will have to be pulled down.
At a rally he addressed dubbed developmental, Mutharika said most of the country’s districts’ headquarters are not in good form such that they need to be reconstructed.
He then commanded that Mzimba will be the first to taste the fruits of the reconstruction project.
“I’m now introducing district headquarters renovation. There are some districts headquarters which have been overlooked for a long time.
“I will start reconstructing them and the first one to be in a modern district complex will be the Mzimba boma,” said Mutharika.
He added that his government will bring other development projects to the area including a community college and an electrification program in Luwelezi.
The reconstruction of districts’ headquarters comes at a time when government is also busy rehabilitating roads in the country’s cities, towns and district.
