President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera affirms the ongoing commitment of his administration to sow the seeds of development across all districts, viewing this as a pivotal strategy for the nation’s transformation. The President conveyed this message at Mwanza Community Ground on Friday during a development rally, following a thorough examination of various projects underway in the district.
Chakwera emphasized that his government is dedicated to initiating diverse construction projects, and his visit to Mwanza aimed to not only assess ongoing development endeavors but also to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by the residents of the district.
“I am delighted to see good progress on the projects like police staff houses. However, I am also disappointed to see Mwanza Secondary School being in a dilapidated state due to negligence of some people who are failing to do some rehabilitation works.
“There is need to change the face of the district by constructing modern infrastructure,” said President Chakwera.
He, therefore, pledged that government will construct new office buildings at Mwanza District Council so that staff should work in a conducive environment.
He added that government will also construct modern market infrastructure and a bus depot at Mwanza Boma, among others.
The President said it is high time contractors in the district should start building durable and high quality infrastructure that could withstand bad weather.
Minister of Local Government, Unity and Culture, Richard Chimwendo Banda, hailed government for rolling out different development infrastructures in all the districts across the country.
“This is enough evidence of government’s commitment to develop all the districts including Mwanza,” said Banda.
Before holding the development rally, the president visited Mwanza Secondary School and Mwanza District Hospital before inspecting construction of police staff houses and laying a foundation stone for construction of Mwanza Stadium.
