The government will soon embark on five development projects in Nkhata Bay North West Constituency as a way of continued provision of social amenities to its citizens, Presidential Advisor on Youth affairs, Vuwa Kaunda disclosed this week.
Kaunda revealed the plans Tuesday when he addressed a public rally at Chombe in Chief Mankhambira’s area in the district.
According to Kaunda, the planned projects to be implemented in the area include a new secondary school at Chombe, a market and a police unit at Mpamba, and a technical college. He said the government will also electrify the trading centres within the constituency.
“The President, Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika, sent me to make a public announcement to people in the constituency that his government is set to bring these developments in places such as Lwazi, Nkhwali, Matete and Kangoyi,” said Kaunda.
Group Village Head Malepa said once implemented, the development projects would improve the living standards of people in the area.
He said the construction of a secondary school in the area will reduce distances which learners cover to and from school.
“We have eleven primary schools without a secondary school in Chombe Education Zone. Once the secondary school is constructed within the zone, learners will no longer cover long distances going to secondary schools outside the zone,” said GVH Malepa.
Recently, government constructed Nkhata Bay Bus Depot, Nkhata-Bay Market and construction of Mzuzu -Nkhata Bay Road is currently under way. Mana/skc/gpb/thz
