Chakwera, only leader committed to develop northern region

Sep 8, 2023

The Northern Region was overly neglected and sidelined by the previous regimes when it came to development projects.

Simply put, the past administrations only wanted notherners for votes, nothing more.

The tide has turned as this is no longer the case. Not only has President Chakwera frequented the region since he came to powern, but he has been in the forefront to champion tangible development projects to transform livelihoods.

In the past few months
President Chakwera has been in the region on religious and other development sojourns.

This time he is back to the region where as the Chancellor of Mzuzu University he days ago presided over the 25th Congregation and Silver Jubilee of the University.

The Chakwera administration has been keen in revamping the education standards in the country, that’s why at Mzuzu University he has initiated construction of the state-of- the-art library and auditorium. In addition, Mzuni is also getting modern learning and lodging facilities.

On Thursday, President Chakwera was in the lakeshore district of Nkhata-Bay where he commissioned the long awaited Nkhata-Bay Water Supply and Sanitation Facilities, a landmark project which has been described as life-transforming as it will provide clean and potable water to Nkhata-Bay town and the surrounding areas.

On Friday, matters of state took President Chakwera to Nkhata-Bay again but this time he was commissioning the Linga Mega Farm.

The commissioning of the this irrigation scheme is testament of President Chakwera’s commitment to revolutionalising commercial agriculture.

As a vital component of the Mega Farm initiative,the irrigation scheme feeds into the Malawi 2063 of achieving food security at household level.

This is Chakwera development signature in reviving the fortunes of a region that was for a long time wrongly dubbed as “dead north”
