President Peter Mutharika has pledged continued development in cities and town of the country.
Speaking on Monday, 27 June 2016 when he toured Roads Upgrading to Asphalt Surfacing Projects, Mutharika said roads are a catalyst for development hence the need to have a good road network in cities and towns.
“We are going to continue upgrading ring roads and construct new roads to ease congestion around the major cities and towns,” said Mutharika. “These road projects are being funded by your tax money not donors. So continue paying tax for continued development.”
The State president also urged the people against vandalism.
“Vandalism impedes development. We must not man-handle culprits of vandalism rather report them to the Police. I assure you that the courts will issue stiff punishments so that we rid this malpractice among us,” said Mutharika.
Minister of Local Government and Rural Development Kondwani Nankhumwa said his ministry will work hand in hand with councils in serving the people.
The president toured the Bangwe—Mpingwe road, Living Waters—Zion road and the Chilomoni—Sigerege road.
