Minister of Local government, Unity and Culture Richard Chimwendo Banda says delivering improved quality healthcare, education and road infrastructure are underpinning pillars of President Dr Lazarus Chakwera’s led government.

The minister was speaking today at Masangwe trading centre in Chikwawa South Constituency after touring various development projects that are being implemented with the help of Constituency Development Funds (CDF) including the Masangwe Health Centre.
