RA, Stakeholders to relocate Muloza One Stop Border Post

The Roads Authority (RA) and its stakeholders are planning to relocate the Muloza One Stop Border Post, situated between Malawi and Mozambique.

This decision comes after construction at the original site stalled due to a change of plans following the devastation caused by Cyclone Freddy.

The cyclone caused floods that swept away the Muloza Bridge, connecting the two countries.

Additionally, a building belonging to the Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) was nearly submerged in floodwater, resulting in the destruction of valuables such as computers and other office equipment.

However, efforts are underway to refurbish the area, including finalising repairs to the bridge, but the place is rated by RA and MRA as high risk and not feasible for further investment

This relocation initiative follows the initial financing of the project through the Southern Africa Trade and Connectivity Project, funded by the World Bank.

The Roads Authority estimates that an additional ten million dollars will be required as a top-up to the existing funding.

Adjison Maziwele, MRA’s Station Manager at the border post, stresses its significance as a vital entry and exit point for essential goods between the two countries.
