DPP Treasurer General Henry Mussa, who is also Minister of Labor, Youth, Sports and Manpower Development made the promise at a political rally he, together with other senior party leaders, addressed in Ndirande on Sunday.
At the rally, Mussa was franked by DPP Regional Governor for the South Charles Mchacha, Director of Women Patricia Kaliati Blantyre City Mayor Wild Ndipo and other Southern Region Parliamentarians.
Said Mussa: “ Ndirande is a naturally industrious township and all we have to do, as Government, is to just compliment the youth’s skills with some formal education that would in turn make them entrepreneurers. This is why plans are in the pipeline to open a community technical college in this township.”
Mussa further said plans to construct a new stadium in Blantyre were at an advanced stage.
Taking his turn, Regional Governor Charles Mchacha asked people from opposition parties who are willing to join DPP to do so now in order to help develop the country.
He said as DPP they will continue with the daunting task of steering the country out of poverty and bring meaningful development
Speaking on behalf of other traditional leaders who attended the rally, Paramount Chief Lundu advised politicians to desist from inciting people into anarchy.
Chief Lundu said the flocking into the country of people fleeing political conflicts or civil unrest in their countries was a clear manifestation of peace and tranquility prevailing in Malawi, therefore any attempts to incite violence in the country should be nipped in the bud.
Lundu also seized the moment to demonise some harmful cultural practices, such as kulowa kufa, which he said have no place in the modern Malawi.
Other chiefs who attended the rally included senior chiefs Ngolongoliwa of Thyolo and Kapeni of Blantyre.
