Malawi President Peter Mutharika says Democratic Progressive Party administration will take upgrading of roads to all districts after upgrading roads in the country’s cities and towns.
Mutharika said this on Friday when he toured three road
projects in Lilongwe’s locations of Senti, Chilinde and Area 36.
The President said it was the wish of his government to have a network of better roads across the country which he said would form the basis for development.
“It is within DPP government’s plan that when we are done with upgrading roads in all the cities of Blantyre, Zomba, Lilongwe and Mzuzu, we should upgrade the roads in all the districts so that there is no gravel road anywhere,” said Mutharika.
He stressed that the upgrading of the roads was DPP government’s initiative and not of any other party as some councilors in some
areas wanted people to believe.
The Malawi leader also thanked the people in the three areas for their support during the 2014 general elections and urged them
to do likewise in 2019.
President Mutharika further urged the people to be tolerant with each other and to take responsibility of ensuring the security of people with albinism who have in recent times suffered various attacks on their lives.
He also urged the people to diversify their eating habits so as not to rely on nsima only.
The three road upgrading projects
Mutharika toured on Friday are at advanced stage and are expected to be completed very soon.
