Lucius Banda Applauds DPP Govt For Constructing BK-Bilira Via Khwisa Road: Says It’s Beautiful
Member of Parliament for Balaka North, Lucius Banda has applauded the Democratic Progressive Party under the leadership of President Arthur Peter Mutharika for the road construction from Balaka to Bilira via Khwisa.
Banda thanked the government for the construction of the road from Balaka to Bilira via Khwisa, saying the construction of the tarmac road has started and there is great working progress.
“It is a very beautiful road. As a Member of Parliament I am very proud and I really appreciate,” said Banda.
He further asked the government to consider fixing the road from Ulongwe to Balaka via Mbera and Toleza saying it is a business road and may bring a huge difference to the people in the area as along this road there are a lot of serious commercial farms including a cotton ginner.
“Thousands of people are employed in those farms but the road is quite terrible especially Liwawadzi Bridge. I would like to remind the Ministry to do something about it,” said Banda.
Minister of Transport and Public Works , Jappie Mhango, said he was pleased with the sentiments and appreciation from MP Banda about the road that government is constructing in his constituency and encouraged the parliamentarian to give government “ all the support as we embark on the road to improve most of our roads.”
“I have also taken note on the request to fix the road from Ulongwe-Balaka via Mbera-Toleza. I will ask my officials to visit this road to ensure that it is also given due attention. “
