The construction of Blantyre National Stadium will be open to both local and foreign contractors and duration shall depend on the designs and input from the contractor.

    awa ndi mashini and the guy is wozichepetsa as you can see he will involve every1 to be part of the project. Adadi munawina enawa akufuna abele adzizasolola. The only remaining part, take on board our energy engineers from poly to help sort out the energy crisis rather than relying fully on european and asian engineers. Make them think like engineers not technicians. I hope they have local solutions that need to be taken on board.

    Its a good timing tonic agenda as some had to go abroad not just to watch soccer but to feelings and watch the beautiful stadiums of our friends abroad. As such we can not reflect our ideas of others other than pleasing ours.

    This will also bring economy being that we had to be sidelined for not having good stadium even African club trainings had to abandon us for poor stadium as such this will invest more economy.

    This is a good idea bwana APM
