Ambassador and Head of European Union (EU) delegation to Malawi Marchel Gerrmann on Monday paid a courtesy call on His Worship the Mayor Cllr Wild Ndipo.
The one hour discussion centred on what the Council was doing in the provision of quality services and on the other hand, the EU contribution to Malawi in general and Blantyre City in particular.
Ndipo was in the company of his deputy Cllr Joseph Makwinja.
The Mayor informed the ambassador that the Council was determined to deliver high level municipal services to the residents.
He, however, noted that financial constraints were a setback. The ambassador was shocked to learn that the Council receives only five percent funding from government of its annual budget of about K4 billion.
EU is supporting water and sanitation projects in the City.
