Chakwera visits Mzuzu vendors

By Burnett Munthali

Earlier on Saturday 9 March 2024, President Reverend Lazarus Chakwera was warmly welcomed by Mzuzu vendors during his visit to the Central and Vigwagwa markets. Later in the day Chakwera reciprocated with an invitation to the State Lodge where he continued with discussions.

Major issues that formed part of the discussion were vendors’ concerns around access to capital, adequate trading space, stalls, paved passages and lights within market premises.

On the issue of trading space, Chakwera’s administration is already engaging all stakeholders to see to it that Mzuzu vendors get modern facilities for their daily endeavours.

The President has reiterated his assurances on business financing, similar from meetings of this nature in Blantyre and Lilongwe, that initiatives such as the National Empowerment Economic Fund (NEEF) are convenient means of business transformation for vendors.
