Parliamentarian for Lilongwe City Centre, David Bisnowaty has described 2016 as a successful year for his constituency with several projects implemented.
In an exclusive interview with Malawi News Agency, Bisnowaty said a lot has been achieved in the constituency with roads and school projects as the highlights.
“The big success story is the construction of the Senti — Chenicheni road which had been held up for many years but it is now decongesting traffic from the M1 and Kaunda roads. The road is almost complete and the city council has passed budget for completion of the remaining phase of the road.
“We have ensured that most roads to many villages in the city are accessible, we have maintained many boreholes, put solar panels in schools so that they have electricity for free, we are putting water pumps with 10,000 litres capacity which are also solar powered and next year we are going into drip irrigation,” he said.
Bisnowaty added that, “Most of the clinics and schools are way better this year. At Kabwabwa School, we have upgraded the lab facilities and the hall. We are also working hard in ensuring cleanliness of the city and markets through garbage collections.”
Looking forward to next year, Bisnowaty said the main priority will be to improve access to medicine and health facilities.
“We want to make sure that all rural and semi-urban areas have a health facility so that they do not have to go to the central hospital, we believe if there is good healthy there is prosperity,” he said.
Meanwhile, the parliamentarian concluded 2016 by visiting children in several Community Based Care Centres across the constituency.
During the visit, Bisnowaty donated maize and sugar and also encouraged the children to focus on education so as to ensure their self-dependence and a successful nation.
