President Dr Lazarus Chakwera says his government will continue to plant development projects in all the districts as one way of transforming the country.

The President made the remarks at Mwanza Community Ground on Friday during a development rally after inspecting different projects currently underway in the district.

Chakwera said his government is doing all it can to establish different construction projects and his visit to Mwanza was to inspect development projects and appreciate challenges people in the district are facing.

“I am delighted to see good progress on the projects like police staff houses.

“However, I am also disappointed to see Mwanza Secondary School being in a dilapidated state due to negligence of some people who are failing to do some rehabilitation works.

“There is need to change the face of the district by constructing modern infrastructure,” said President Chakwera.

He, therefore, pledged that government will construct new office buildings at Mwanza District Council so that staff should work in a conducive environment.

He added that government will also construct modern market infrastructure and a bus depot at Mwanza Boma, among others.

The President said it is high time contractors in the district should start building durable and high quality infrastructure that could withstand bad weather.

Minister of Local Government, Unity and Culture, Richard Chimwendo Banda, hailed government for rolling out different development infrastructures in all the districts across the country.

“This is enough evidence of government’s commitment to develop all the districts including Mwanza,”said Banda.

Before holding the development rally, the president visited Mwanza Secondary School and Mwanza District Hospital before inspecting construction of police staff houses and laying a foundation stone for construction of Mwanza Stadium.
