Government to continue taking development to every community

Written by  Gladys Kamakanda

Lilongwe, June 7: President Pro. Peter Mutharika said Government will continue taking development to every community and Malawian to make the country’s Independence meaningful to everyone.

 

He made the remarks in Lilongwe on Thursday during the National Service of Worship at Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC).

 

Malawi leader said political independence should mean economic independence and more development to the people.

 

“We need economic independence so that we move away from a situation where we are lectured to like children simply because we are dependent on others. I want to see more trading centres lit bright under the rural electrification programme,” Mutharika observed.

 

He said, “Let piped water from the mountains and lake reach more communities. Let vulnerable Malawians enjoy more decent houses under malata and cement subsidy.And let every Malawian enjoy the pride of having a National Identity Card. Let us change the life of every Malawian. And this is a point of no return!”

 

The President said government want to see more community colleges constructed, create more jobs, more tarmac roads in the cities, towns and districts across the country.

 

“Let us say farewell to dusty roads in our cities. Farewell to blackouts. That is the progressive agenda of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP),” Mutharika wished.

 

He said there is a need to agree on a number of things as a nation by forgetting the differences and remember to unite on the things that will build this nation and remember that we are all Malawians.
