As the unrest over the purported Likhubula Water Supply Project in Mulanje continues, government has been highly cautioned on the need to listen to concerns the locals have pertaining to the effects the project may have on Mulanje Mountain.

The project which was officially launched by the Malawi leader  Peter Mutharika on Monday permits the extraction of water from the famous Mulanje mountain.

However, Mulanje residents have made fresh calls for the government to stop the ambitious K13 billion water project.

In an exclusive interview with Malawi24, an environmental expert Godfrey Mfiti said the people of Mulanje have all the reasons to request the government to help them conserve the tourist attraction site that is Mulanje mountain.

“The government must adopt and use the United Nations Guiding Principle on Business and Human Rights initiated in 2011.The government must ensure all stakeholders are consulted. In this process, the project must not be bulldozed. As such everyone will welcome it,” Mfiti said.

Mfiti further said the benefits of the people of Mulanje must be put in black and white and that the promises must be maintained.

The resistance is emerging following the requests for the government to intervene in the protection of the mountain by planting more trees, and not tap water from the mountain which is feared will destroy the mountain.
