Chakwera says Government has made progress in developmental projects


President Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera says as Government has been overcoming many challenges across the year, it has not stopped making progress in delivering the developmental agenda that it pledged to Malawians.

Chakwera said everywhere one go in the country, roads are being constructed, hospitals are being built, bridges are being completed, schools are being expanded and public buildings are rising from the ground.

He said after years of neglect and resistance the railway system of Malawi is being restored saying this is an investment that will significantly cut the cost of moving goods to market in the future.

Speaking in his New Year’s 2024 address to the nation, President Chakwera said although his government has delivered so much, this is not the time to be complacent, nor it is a time to be distracted.

Chakwera said as he sees it, 2024 is the year for PUSHING because now that government has put institutional framework in order and completion of current projects and the start of new ones now that the country has investors and donors coming back.

He said 2024 is the year for the country’s citizens pushing themselves to produce, produce and produce, pushing for the use of their farms to grow legumes that will strive in and survive in those conditions instead of crops that will not.

The President said now that government has austerity measures in place to maximize and leverage the country’s limited resources on the most productive activities, 2024 is the year for pushing every wasteful part of government out of its way.

“Pushing out people that are simply wasting time in government offices or wasting government money intended for serving Malawians,” said Dr. Chakwera.

He has assured Malawians that government will do without apology saying he is confident that as he do so, he will have the people’s support.

On governance, President Chakwera said his government has completed the exercise of cleaning up a sewage of bad and poorly negotiated contracts in the Energy and Mining sectors and empower institutions more than ever before, giving the ACB more human and financial resources than under any Administration, and respecting its operational independence, among others.
