The Public Affairs Commitete (PAC) has commended President Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera for his development strides.
Speaking on Tuesday at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe during a meeting with the President, the religious grouping said they have noted with satisfacton some of the unprecedented developmental milestones that have taken place in the country in the last three years of his reign.
Some of the notable projects that have been undertaken by the Chakwera government includes the 301 km M1 road rehabilitation stretching from Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe to Chiweta up north, the six-lane Kenyatta drive connectinng Old town to City Centre in Lilongwe, the four- lane Mzimba street, the Cross Roads to Kanengo four way lane.
President Chakwera’s developent drive has seen a lion share of developmental project being destributed equally across the country. In the northern region for example there is NOCMA to Dunduzu Bypass road, the Rumphi-Nyika road, Mzimba-Mzalangwe road, the Ilomba road in Chitipa and the Chakazi bridge currently being constructed.
Some of the flagship projects in the southern region include the Zomba dual carriageway, 100 kilometre Mangochi-Makanjira road to (commence soon), the Ndirande Kachere road, the Mahatma Ghandi-Kapeni road among others.
PAC also hailed President Chakwera’s government for restoring donor confidence in the wake of his decision to devalue the Kwacha which led to the approval of the IMF’s Extended Credit Facility (ECF) and consequently opened floodgate of donor support and a prospect of resumption of direct budgetary support from multirateral institutions.
PAC is an interdenominational grouping born in the early stages of pluralism whose mandate is to safeguard rule of law and good governance.
