K1.5 billion for Kamuzu stadium renovation

99

Government has said it will use K1.5 billion in the 2017/18 financial year to renovate Kamuzu Stadium.

The allocation of the funds was disclosed by Minister of Sports Henry Mussa during 2017/18 National Budget deliberations in Lilongwe.

Kamuzu stadium up for renovation.

Mussa disclosed that funds amounting to MK1.5 billion have been allocated for the rehabilitation of the stadium.

According to Mussa, the money will be used to replace artificial turf and reinforce the stands at the stadium.

He said that the stadium is too old as it was built in 1959 and continued use without rehabilitation is risky.

Mussa also said that government still maintains its plans to build a new stadium in the commercial city of Blantyre.

He said the place where the new stadium will be constructed will be identified soon.

Recently, supporters of Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers football clubs were against government’s decision to demolish the stadium before constructing a new one.

This forced President Peter Mutharika to order the sports ministry to rehabilitate the stadium so that it should still be used before the new one is constructed.

However, Football Association of Malawi insisted that the stadium will not be hosting games until it is renovated.

  1. But Malawi cities also needed to be building more flats of hotels. So that government can Get more budget of hotels. Coz you can have many visitors in your cities through on your good hotels you can have visitors from European and Asian and African. People are needed to visit Malawi to holiday but problem is that you doesn’t have quality hotels in your cities why Malawi.. Try it and you will see your country change cozy you can also get fast foreix this is the way to get fast foreix please Mr president. And if you have resources you have to deal with it don’t listen to the people…. Because we hear that Malawi have found oil resource in Lake Malawi but government do not deal with it due to the people doesn’t want to deal with oil because of people are benefit with fishing. So my question is that. If they are getting benefits in fishing and why country is still facing poorest in the world?.. Please weke up Malawi oil is best more than gold. You can see Nigeria is number one richest country in Africa just because of oil. You malawian you have gift oil from God but you didn’t want to use it just because of fish Or fresh water And if you have fresh water and fishing and why you still poor people in the worLd? Malawi you need to wake up please. We don’t like to see Malawi in poorest because Malawi have resources.. Please reading proper my message and if you a common sense and you have use it!!!
