UTM told to construct stadium for Mzuzu

…not Mzuzu International Airport

Football legend Kinnah Phiri yesterday urged Vice President Saulos Chilima to construct a football stadium in Mzuzu and ditch plans for an airport in the city.

The former Flames mentor made the call at a rally Chilima’s United Transformation Movement (UTM) organized at Mzuzu Upper Stadium.

Phiri, who unlike other high level speakers, spoke in Chichewa, pleaded with Chilima to shut down plans for an International Airport, saying the North does not have people who would fly and benefit from the airport.

Instead, he urged Chilima to construct stadiums in the region.

“I am happy that you are the only presidential candidate who does not only like sports but actually participates in sporting activities.

“We have seen you jogging and playing basketball that makes us so happy and shows that you will understand us as a fellow youth,” he said.

Phiri then endorsed Chilima and encouraged people to vote for the vice president in the 2019 elections.

  1. STADIUM NDI ‘STAND’ NZOSIYANA MR PATRICK PHIRI (A HAWKING SHOP IS NOT A SHOPPING MALL!!)

    BWANA KINA, CHONDE WE RESPECT YOU, ARE YOU SERIOUS AN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT IS NOT REQUIRED IN THE NORTH???? WE ARE TALKIG OF A PLACE THAT IS +/- 50KM FROM THE LAKE AND IS A TOURISM DESTINATION (YOU CAN ARGUE ABOUT THE DISTANCE TO/ FROM LUSANGAZI MAYBE).

    ‘DITCHING’ IS A STRONG WORD!!

    I MAYBE GOOD AT ‘NYAU’ BUT USUALLY PERFORM POORLY IN ATHELETICS (VERY IRONICAL INDEED!!) BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN I HAVE TO DITCH MY DANCING SKILLS, WE NEED THE AIRPORT AS WELL.

    ANYWAYS, THANKS FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION!!!
