Confirming the development to MBC, District Commissioner for Likoma, Ababukar Nkhoma, said the investors have shown interest in tourism, gaming, sports and transportation.

He said among others, a European investor is keen on a multi-billion-dollar tourism infrastructure development project on the Island and the company will build a five-star hotel among other hospitality facilities.

He said the investors have also shown interest in expanding Likoma Airport and intend to construct state-of-the-art sports complex and a golf course on the island district.
