Mutharika: Has made the promise.

In his speech, President Mutharika said good roads are important for the development of the country.

He added that all the roads being upgraded in the city of Mzuzu will be completed soon.

Mutharika also dismissed people’s arguments that his government is not developing the northern region of the country, saying his administration will make sure that the region is developing.

The road construction and upgrading programme is currently happening in all four cities of Malawi. Government also plans to upgrade and construct roads in all districts of the country.

Some quarters were criticising the Mutharika led government of sidelining the northern region in terms of development.



  1. Not the type of roads being constructed in Lilongwe….A road tht develops pot holes 3wks aft construction. Go chek the road into baghdad jst opposite the new flats. Its less thn a month but potholes are already comun. Eish!!! Malawi do sad!

  2. You call building substandard roads real development? Such roads don’t last because of the poor quality of construction done by dubious contractors connected to DPP. There is a Roadsgate going on in the name of constructing roads in cities. DPP stinks and sucks and should go to hell.
