Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has on Monday handed over to Namulenga communities in Mulanje a new bridge, which he has constructed with K120 million.

The previous bridge was washed away by Cyclone Freddy.

Speaking in an interview with journalists, Bushiri said he funded and launched the construction of the new bridge on November 7,2023, following a request by community members in the area through Mulanje District Council.

He said it is possible for citizens to redeem their government from relying on other countries by contributing to development activities.

Said Bushiri: “I do believe that we should not be waiting for government to look for donations from Norway to come and build a bridge like this one. I do believe that certain things, we as Malawians, can take up matters in our own hands.

“If we will have four or five Malawians doing this, our country will move forward.”

On his part, Minister of Transport and Public Works Jacob Hara commended Bushiri for supporting the government by constructing the bridge.

The Minister called on Malawians to be patriotic and support various government development programmes as Bushiri always do.
