Where is Malawi missing it?

Newly constructed road in Uganda,Why can’t Malawi have such roads?

For every country to grow socially and economically, it needs good road networks as is happening in other African countries such as Uganda.

However, the case is not the same with the country, Malawi where roads into our three major cities  are not all that better to accommodate traffic jams as they are small and narrow – at the maximum they only have two lanes going in a direction.

Malawi24 takes a look at the new road in Kampala , Uganda that is expected to boost that country’s economy since it will connect the capital Kampala to one of the country’s airports, Entebe.

Malawi24 caught up with one Ugandan who has expressed hope that such magnificent roads can make most of the African countries proud in one way or another socially and economically.

In an exclusive interview with the man, Hamdan Abdul Rasheed, Malawi24 has learnt that the road is being funded by Japanese government since Uganda has a good bilateral relationships with the Asian countries.

Why can’t Malawi use such donors such as Japan and China to build such roads in the country since we are also in strong bonds with the two countries?

Why can’t Malawi use such approach of diverging the roads in the capital Lilongwe being also a landlocked country?

Malawi24 asked some residents in the Malawi capital, Lilongwe where people have asked authorities to start emulating other developments as to what is  happening in other countries such as Uganda.

In an interview with a Lilongwe resident, Mike Banda, traffic jam in the capital is just pathetic as roads are just in pathetic state the same as the bridges .

“The roads should be given maximum  attention since we are a landlocked country . I think government may construct  a world class road from Kamuzu International Airport (KIA) to different parts of Lilongwe to make transportation of goods easy since we rely on road transportation,” Banda told Malawi24.

“Look at the traffic jam from Crossroads Hotel to Lilongwe town or Simama Hotel to town. This in a way derails our development since people spend hours on the road. I think  government should think of diverting roads in our three major cities to make easy for traffic,” Banda told Malawi24 in an exclusive interview.

  1. The materials used to develop Europe are from Africa because Africa is handicapped in technology and expertees. The second thing is poor leadership in Africa, low education and corruption.

  6. Noone is answering on produces we Malawians do to contribute to export for forex.Everybody wants white collar job staying in an office expecting the villagers to make production for us.We admire things that needs cash resources.Before we demonize others and before we use cashgate as escapegoat can you tell us products we produce as individuals that brings forex ziiii!If we order bananas from Tz and apples from South Africa what is stopping you and me from to growing? Malawians have mouths for eating no hands for production .Malawi is mere consuming Nation consuming things produced from other Countries.Can one compare the ability of standard 8 pupil with University graduate?As a Country we a mere developing Country not developed Country

  8. Our constitution is the problem. It makes politicians untouchable. They can steal tax payers money in a day light they can’t be held accountable.

  9. Malawi is missing it because there is a lot of negativity and mediocrity in everything that we do. Just look at some of the comments made here? Mediocrity, mediocrity and more mediocrity.

    • Kamuzi with full support from the west zinthu zomwe anapanga ndi zochepa poyerekeza ndi kutali kwa nthawi yomwe analamula

  10. Do you have adequate exports mention- even a lazy person wishes to own a vehicle.Mention tangible production Malawians do that brings forex how can you compare a lazy with an achiever citizen?

  11. Malawi can do it our heart we do not accept to be the looser and to let some one to read us.we always loose time for fighting at the end no one has benefited on it.do you think we can have good things with the way how it is?for example some one is saying we must put a port in nsanje the same Malawi some one is saying no.hey this is for the Malawi not one person yet today you are saying we must have road like this yet we oppose every thing for nothing am finished.

  12. Miseu yambiri it’s not for free ngati kumalawi,so it’s easy for them to have better roads.while in Malawi everything is for Mahala…

  18. Corruption, nepotism, tribalism, lack of transparency, anger, revenge, bodza you can name it. That is Malawi. Even if the party is elected they carry on campaigning, rally after rally just kunyoza ena. Come elections asking for more 5years to campaign again. If we can have a leadership that will voted in then stop campaign and pump up work

  19. Because this country has got nice airports and big planes flying around us during the night and some beautiful roads too. ….The reality is we just need to turn this WITCHCRAFT thing into a reality

  20. how can you have a good road network without a good leadership it’s impossible corrupt leaders can not develop a country never what they know is to squander the government resources and nothing else period

  21. A very big question,even Zuma mocked us,of poor roadworks.why do we fail to develop a small country .Look how bad M1 is
    What is the vision of Peter on roads.Bingu Was serious.No nation will ever develop with poor roads

  22. Malawi Is Different Fron Any Other Country.We Can Look At Its Size,shape Leaders And Even Population Etc So We Can’t Be The Same Indeed.

  23. University of corruption Malawi..world poorest country..but they have apresident who’s in anice position on aworld richest people that means we have resources to develop our country but our educated, savages,greedy leaders..

  24. Wy you compare Malawi with countries? Is Malawi country? No no no! It’s just a region of certain country. Ihave forgotten the name. OUR CASH GET WIL NEVER GET US THERE, IMEAN TO HAVE THOSE DEVELOPMENTS.
